Small Business Owners Cannot Have Success without Failure

In his book, Uncommon Wisdom, our friend, Tom Feltenstein says,

“When winners fail, they get up and go again. And the very act of getting up is victory.” 

Tom quotes Robert Allen, who said, “There is no failure, only feedback,” and then adds this thought, “Failure is successfully discovering something that doesn't work.”   Words of wisdom which can only come from those who have known failure, and from that acquaintance, found success.

I like to think of failure as the harnessmate of success and I expect to be acquainted with both as long as I live.
