I love the expression on this dog's face....that look of expectancy.
Some thoughts on failure.... excerpted from "Failure is Written in Pencil" by David Ireland. He says there are seven benefits of failure. I'll just name the first here---it positions you for personal change.
"Average people become great achievers by properly processing their failures. One of Thomas Edison's assistants questioned him about his bewildering number of failures---fifty thousand failed experiments---before he succeeded with a new storage battery. Edison exclaimed, 'Results! Why man, I have gotten a lot of results. I know fifty thousand things that won't work.'"
"....It's easy to simply work harder; anyone can do it. However, great achievers learn from their failures so they can work smarter and more effectively."
