Today’s quote comes from Theodore Roosevelt.
“It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried in the first place.” Theodore Roosevelt.
Failing is very difficult. It is psychologically painful. It’s something none of us like to face. I want you to think about Pete Rose. He was one of the greatest baseball players when I was a kid. He won 3 World Series rings, 3 batting titles, one Most Valuable Player, Two Gold Gloves and the Rookie of the year. Not only that, he made 17 All-Star appearances at 5 different positions. He is the all-time Major-League leader in hits with 4256 hits.
Did Pete have any failures? Yes. He struck out 10,328 times. That means approx. 6 out of 10 at bats he failed. Had Pete never tried he would have never had that success. Yes failure is hard but it is much better to at least try because eventually success will come your way.
