This Statement Grabbed Me Like No Other

This week I heard a statement.

It was delivered by a US Military Captain.

What was so special about this statement ?


The statement should resonate to the heart of every business owner.

It should resonate to the very fabric of society.

We should be telling our children this.

Our parents.

Our grandparents.

By gees even our politicians, no matter what their political persuasion is, should take notice.

And this statement should resonate with you.

So what is this statement ?

What were these unexpected words I heard when chilling with a cup of Earl Grey on the sofa. Ok. It was probably a glass of South Australia’s finest red but I am sure you get the point.

What were these words which made me immediately grab a pen and scribble in the column of the local news paper so I wouldn’t forget them ?

Now please grasp the importance here.

This is a lesson we can all learn from.

The statement was…

“Failure only tells us where we have been…
It does not dictate where we are going !”

I don’t know about you but I have failed many times at many things.

I have sat around lamenting why me ?

I have sulked.

I have withdrawn.


I have wallowed at times in self-pity.

I am not afraid to admit it.

I have even failed…

At relationships…

At friendships…

At tasks…

At promises…

At work…

And more importantly I have failed many times at ME.

But somehow I always pick myself up and got back on the horse.

What about you ?

Has this statement from a Military Captain exploded any thought of self-pity within you ?

“Failure only tells us where we have been…
It does not dictate where we are going !”

I hope so.


If you are looking for more sales.

If you are looking for more income.

If you are looking for better times.

Then maybe you need not let any of your past or current failures dictate where you are going.

Maybe it is time to get back on the horse.

To market and get your name out there.

The best way is go back over and look at what has worked in the past.  Too many times we search for new ideas or new remedies when the old ones worked just fine.  It is only we haven’t used them for awhile.

It may be a flyer you wrote, an email you sent or an advertisement you placed.

And if you need help working out what to do next…

You know where I am.
