Don’t let failure get you down because it means you are one step closer to success. Read these quotes from inspiring individuals who have faced the same circumstances but grown from them. Don’t give up.
You’re not obligated to win. You’re obligated to keep trying. To the best you can do everyday.
– Jason Mraz
You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.
– Johnny Cash
All men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repairs the evil. The only crime is pride.

At the end of the day, you are solely responsible for your success and your failure.

As long as you blame others for the reason you aren’t where you want to be, you will always be a failure.
– Erin Cummings

– Ashly Lorenzana
