    This speaks to the fact that we learn from our mistakes. So I think the point is not to get discouraged but to just keep going -each mistake gets us closer to a success.

      Well said Dave, it’s the same as saying what doesn’t kill you should make you stronger.

    Another important thing to remember is to not be afraid of failure. That’s one of the biggest factors as to why people never try in the first place.

      Being afraid of failure can destroy someone’s life in a really bad extent. Trying doing something you failed last year, keep practising it even if you fails because each bad step nears you to a better one.

      Thanks.

    This is especially true with affiliate marketing. You’re not going to profit on your first campaign, but if you keep at it (bounce) you’ll find success :)

      agreed, finding a profitable affiliate campagin is not always the easiest thing to do.

    2. Joseph

      This is totally right. It is not always that you’ll be lucky enough to profit from your first campaign, but if you keep at it learning from each fail you’ll eventually smile all the way to the bank.

    Surely, measuring how high one climbs is a big mistake considering the time taken to fall is minimal of that taken to climb. Therefore, success is best portrayed by how high one bounces when he hits bottom after the fall. This simply means we should learn to take risks and failures as a way of encouragement rather than discouragement.

    Thanks Steven for sharing this quote here.
