If you want to succeed, then failure is not an option. Even though in our quest to accomplish certain goals, we occasionally miss the mark. Missing the mark does not mean that you failed. It means that you must re-evaluate and try again. Perhaps there is something that you missed, or overlooked. Perhaps you need more training or assistance of some kind. Whatever it is, you do the investigative work to find out what you need to reach that goal. Then put it in the equation and go for it! Remember, unless you stop pressing toward that goal altogether, you have not failed. It’s just that you have yet to attain it! Keep pressing!
