“Ever tried. Ever failed. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”

Every successful man on this planet has role models or idols or mentors … whatever you call them, it is the people you look up to, you learn from, you admire.

One of the those mentors I admire is Oprah Winfrey. There is no doubt she is the person to learn from. The reason I resonate with this person is because she attends to the question “What am I here for?” all the time. By asking this question, we ask the Universe/God etc. to give us that purpose. If you are not looking for it, you won’t find it

On our quest for such a purpose it is always good to pump ourselves with inspiring quotes. I am subscribed to Oprah’s daily newsletters and one of recent quotes I’ve received and want to share here is this:

“Ever tried. Ever failed. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”
–Samuel Beckett

The bottom line is: it is all about doing things, failing, learning and doing them again. Successful people learn to fail and most importantly learn from those failures. In conclusion, here is my version of the statement above.

Learn to fail, but don’t fail to learn from those failures
