Thousands of renowned mistakes have occurred throughout history. People were fighting with the push-and-pull generated by this burning desire to succeed even before recorded history. This exceeds mere survival. Survival is incorporated into our DNA— it is component of the very fabric that makes us who we are.
People were not only created to survive, however; we were created to flourish. Since the earliest days of our species, we have flourished some 200,000 years ago. We have been able to expand our understanding, enhance our technology and greatly improve our quality of life with the lovely invention of language.
Indeed, the world's most productive and well-known individuals have endured the most life failures. They have constantly failed. But they got back up as well. They didn't throw the proverbial towel into it. They weren't calling the ropes quits or heading. They stood up and went on. And to succeed, that's just what it takes.
