I came across a few nice quotes in Sunday TOI (Times of India) last week. I felt I should share them with you.

“A failure is a man who has blundered, but is not able to cash in on the experience” Elbert Hubbard
“Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out” Robert Collier
“I cannot give you a formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure – which is: Try to please everybody.” Harbert Bayard Swope
“The secret of success in life is for a man to be ready for his opportunity when it comes.” Earl of Beaconsfield

My takeaways after reading these quotes were,

It is far better to enjoy Small successes right now, rather than keep waiting for a big success some time in the distant future.Define for yourself what success means to you and then enjoy both success & failure by making it an opportunity to learn & grow.
