Not sure where I heard this, but doesn't seem everyone knows this one or so they seem to act as if they don't.
"A man (or woman) who is still alive has not yet failed ..." -Unknown Author
This is great news. We never really fail until we die. It's like life is a game and we have an unlimited number of tokens to continue or start over. You didn't fail. You stopped trying for a moment and it is up to you to try again. In fact just DO instead of try. Switch from being an effect to being the CAUSE of what's in your life within reason. You didn't fail, you just tried to fail yourself but failed at that since if you're still alive you haven't failed. You made a choice to stop trying and SUCCEEDED at that. That's all.
