    Nice post. Actually like the second last quote from Jim Rohn. One of my favourites is this one by Michael Jordon:

    “I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
