     How to overcome failure
24



        'A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more
         useful than a life spent in doing nothing‘
                                   -George Bernard Shaw

        We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success.
         We often discover what will do, by finding out what will not do;
         and probably he who never made a mistake never made a
         discovery.

        Remember: Failure is first step of success.
