OWL Workshop Recap on Failing Forward

Hi OWL team, here is the recap on what we learned at our OWL meeting last night:

OWL Principle #3:
Failing is part of the process of achieving success.

“I’ve failed over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.” - Michael Jordan

“You always pass failure on the way to success.” - Mickey Rooney

“Failure is only postponed success as long as courage coaches ambition” - Kaufman

“If you're afraid to fail, you don't deserve to be successful." - Barkley *Michelle here: This quote is about people who are so afraid of failure that they won't PAY THE PRICE of success.  There is a difference between being afraid and not doing anything and being afraid and doing it anyway.  Just wanted to clarify because there was some misunderstanding about this quote.

“The line between failure and success is so fine that we often don’t know when we pass it.” - Emerson

“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” - Edison

"A successful person is simply someone who has fallen down 7 times and got up 8." 

"Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm." - Churchill

Then we wrapped things up with an awesome talk by Jack Canfield who is the the creator of The Chicken Soup for the Soul series and author of The Success Principles.  

Like any really successful person, Jack Canfield is a product of personal development and the principles of success taught therein.  In this interview with SUCCESS Magazine publisher Darren Hardy, Jack shares his knowledge on goal achieving, taking action, maintaining momentum, and developing the right attitude and mindset about our relationship with money.

I took a truck load of notes, but I'm not going to share them here because I'd much rather you listen to the talk for yourself and take your own notes. 
So sit down, relax, and listen to this great audio.  C'mon, you can do this one thing for your better future can't you?
