    Proper Prior Practice Prevents Pitiful Poor Performance

 

    FIVE (5) FAILURES:

          1.   I never see failure as failure, but only as a learning               experience.

          2.   I never see failure as failure, but only as an opportunity to develop my  sense of humor.

          3.   I never see failure as failure, but only as an opportunity to practice my  techniques and perfect my performance.

          4.   I never see failure as failure, but only as the game I must play to win.

          5.   I never see failure as failure, but only as negative feedback I need to change course in my direction.

 

          Creed of a Champion:

          I am not judged by the number of times I fail, but by the number of times I  succeed, and the number of times I succeed is in direct proportion to the  number of times I can fail and keep on trying.
