It is fun to celebrate the successes of life. But lets be honest, none of the celebrations could take place without the wipeouts that came first. Every basket scored, test passed and jump landed first required practice, hard work—and wipeouts.
You can see video after video of Epic Fails that seem to indicate fails indicate failure, but the opposite is true. It is only those who have failed, crashed, fallen, wiped out or hit a wrong note that eventually succeed.
The difference between failure and success is simply when you stop trying.
Here's to the wipeouts, not the failures, simply the "I think I can, I think I can" moments that precede the finish lines of life.
If a first you don't succeed, join the club.
Enjoy this little Wipeout video that has become one of our family favorites. Thanks to Brandon for teaching us this valuable lesson, and making us laugh.
