"I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career.

I have lost almost 300 games.

On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game's winning shot, and missed.

I have failed over and over and over again in my life.

And that's why I succeed."
- Michael Jordan

What a great quote. I read another by Edison about failing also- I'm sure you know it. He said "he didn't fail, he just found 10,000 ways that won't work"... NICE!!
Sometimes we get on that mental treadmill where things are crappy, and we don't see the great learning opportunity or the lesson in where we're at. So if you have a minute, take a second to thank all your failures! There's a lesson in there somewhere, everytime.
