If at first you don't succeed, learn and try again!
We learn from our failures and how we recover from themDan Ryan
My first failure was one of the my most impactful experiences, but still painful.
At the young age of 18 I chose to give up a dream to attend and graduate from a service academy.
While I could have let this failure define me, I chose to take another path and learn from this.
Life is a series of failures that can lead to even greater success. The key ingredient is to learn why you failed and then move ahead to gain even greater accomplishments.
