    Failure is only a word people use to describe a situation. We all experience doubts, loss, set-backs, and disappointments. You can’t expect others to have confidence in your abilities or dreams. And the world can be largely immune to your whims and wishes.

    It is important to redefine success for yourself, so that you can better address your own challenges.

    “I’m a success today because I had a friend who believed in me and I didn’t have the heart to let him down.” – Lincoln
