The following comes from Darren Hardy, editorial director of Success Magazine:
Whenever I ask the world’s greatest achievers, What were the top 5 moments you would credit you’re your extraordinary success?, every time, without fail, a great failure, or blisteringly painful experience, is on that top 5 list. If not occupying several spots. Once you turn your failures into fuel, your passion, drive and strength of will can be liberated. Then there is no telling what you could do. I can’t wait to find out.
