Have you ever failed at something? I have; we all have. That’s when you learn the most. If you win a match 6-0, 6-0, you may feel good but you don’t necessarily learn or improve much. When you lose a match 0-6, 0-6, you may feel terrible, but as long as you learn from your mistakes, you are improving.

Here’s a great quote on failure…

“Everyone pushes a falling fence.”
-Chinese proverb

What does this quote mean?

It means that anyone can perform well when things are going their way, but it’s the great ones that can push the fence when things aren’t.

Thanks for reading.


The person who succeeds is not the one who holds back, fearing failure, nor the one who never fails…but rather the one who moves on in spite of failure. Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory or defeat.”

-Theodore Roosevelt
