Did Plan A Fail? Remember This


Did Plan A fail?

Go to Plan B.

Did that fail?

Go to Plan C.

For every failure, learn whatever lessons you can and just keep going.


Don’t worry about Plan A.  There are 25 other letters in the alphabet.

“If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call “failure” is not the falling down, but the staying down.” ~ Mary Pickford

“The majority of men meet with failure because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail.” ~Napoleon Hill

Fall seven times, get up eight.

  1. Failures are great way to learn from your mistakes, but you need take your failures positively only then you can make difference. If you’re not taking any lesson from your failure then you’re going to fail again.

    1. So true. We’re bound to repeat our mistakes if we don’t learn from them. Always take time to see what lessons need to be learned and then start again more intelligently!

  2. “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10000 ways that won’t work. by Thomas Edison”
    That’s the way I see thing when it comes to failure. Though I rarely fail in a disappointing way and when I do I’m pretty much devastated.

    1. I love that quote, Cristian. Perfect example. And it’s never easy to fail, but we can’t let it keep us down, got to get to back up and keep going.

  3. Love this post, it’s packs a powerful punch with few words. Failure leads to success. If you want to have more success, set the intention to have more failures.

  5. Agreed – except if you get to Plan Z, you’re probably doing something wrong. :)
