I know you think you failed but you did not. You had a setback.
You didn’t do enough planning. You didn’t do enough research. You didn’t wait for the right moment.
When children learn to walk, they fall many times before they succeed. But they do not fail. They stand up and try again. That’s really the point. How many times did you stand up after falling down? It is only when you fall down and refuse to get up again that you can say that you may have failed. But if you get up after having fallen…no matter how much time may have passed…if you get up…then you have not failed.
