The Importance of Trying - over, and over and over.... Failure is normal


I liked these graphics I stumbled upon recently:


Number of jobs I’ve had since 1983…19

Number of jobs I’ve been fired from…10.

Longest I’ve been unemployed…1 year
Second longest…6 months.

Longest I lasted at any job?..5 years at my current job.


“A failure is not always a mistake, it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying.” B.F. Skinner American psychologist, behaviorist, author, inventor, and social philosopher


I really like this thread. yes indeed. even if we get laughed at for trying keep doing it. it is good it is really good.



We gain experience with our failures. Keep trying, eventually we’ll succeed.


This really helped me right now. This is day one of not smoking again for me and I really needed to hear this !!
