The Real Man Smiles in Trouble. – Thomas Paine

The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection. – Thomas Paine 

What does it mean to you to “fail better?” Better than someone else? Fail/fare a little better each time you try? Maybe it means to fail spectacularly! Go big or go home! Or how about failing but getting better along the way—getting better through failure—and learning something from the experience? I believe that is the key: to allow failure to be a springboard from which we succeed and grow.

How we handle failure is more important than how we handle success. We are all going to experience failure at some point in our lives, and our attitude about that failure is what determines whether we bounce back or fall hard.

How Failure Helps You To Succeed and Grow
