    Hi Peter, awesome quotes and facts are here in the post. I feel that these will work to change thoughts to positive direction and if someone follow these rules will must get success.
    I like and follow the fact of life that before seeing the success, most of us have to go through dips of unsuccessful until we hit a big success.

    • Peter

      Hello Sangeeta Thank you for your comments and yes that is so true, failure is the precursor to success so it’s OK to fail so long as we don’t give up. To your success. 🙂

    Your review is just amazing ! I am actually looking for a platform where i can learn about online marketing. The information is very helpful and motivating. Many people know that online business exists but unfortunately they quit very fast because it is not that easy as they thought.
    I will be waiting for the new posts, Thx

    • Peter

      Hello Tanya I am pleased you have enjoyed my posts and happy you are looking forward to reading more. Thank you for your comments 🙂

    Very uplifting piece Peter.
    I also have failed and found it very troubling to get back up and try again. Although I had fallen into the normal 9-5 routine. I really never quit thinking about all the success and how I enjoyed it so much. Everything from the way people spoke to me to the feeling of accomplishment I felt every minute of every day. I think it was just the confidence that gave me that feeling and as I try to climb back up that ladder, I do find it harder to take risks that before I would not have even blinked at.
    Anyway reading your piece has really inspired me to step it up a little.
    Thank You Sincerely,
    Mike

      Hey Mike I am pleased you enjoyed the post, unfortunately in life we are NOT told that failure is the precursor to success and what often happens after we experience failure, we give up because we are made to feel like a loser especially by those around us.

      So it’s hard to get back on our feet but it can be done as soon as we realise that it’s OK to fail, so long as we don’t give up. Thank you for your comments and to you future success 🙂

    Hi Peter,
    Love those statistics about millionaires and the frequency with which they lose everything, how many ventures they started until finding the big one, and the average age at which they realize their millions. Now, I don’t feel so bad :). I’ve “dabbled” three times and just didn’t find the right fit for me, and I was starting to feel like a bit of a flake. No, I’m just failing forward fast to success! BTW, I have that video bookmarked on my browser. I listen to it in the mornings when I get up early so I can put in two hours on my business before I go to my day job.

    I agree with you on this one Peter,
    I used to be scared of failure but after running away for so long, I decided to take a leap of faith… and failed.

    But I was glad because from there, I learned something that not many people know. Only after that I was able to grow my business.

    In life, it is better to try than to regret not doing. These are the words I live by and it is something I hope many people would keep close to their hearts when deciding on a huge life commitment.

    • Peter

      Hi Riaz Yes as did I Thank you for your comments and I pleased you found the post agreeable. Thanks for dropping bye 🙂

    Hi Peter,
    Wow, you have an incredible amount of superb material here on your site. Not just this post, which I love, but your entire site is full of important info that will help so many people.

    I just wanted to say thanks for writing “Don’t Be a Quitter, Be a Failure Instead.” I know Walt Disney was once told he didn’t “have enough imagination.” Imagine if he would have quit! We would have no Disneyland. Also, I know that Clint Eastwood was told he didn’t have “the look” to be an actor, he eyes were too squinty or something like that. He is one of my favorite actors and I think an excellent one.

    I bookmarked your site and will be visiting it often-thanks for sharing your knowledge and have an excellent weekend.

    Jen

    • Thank you Jen. Yes there are many examples of people failing before every having any kind of success and too often we forget that and think that to fail is a bad thing. Yet in truth we need to fai in order to succeed. Pleased you enjoyed the post. Appreciate you leaving a comment. 🙂

    Hi Peter. I said I would come back to read your post. Thanks for the content. I especially like your lines…
    ” So what are you waiting for? Hurry up and get your failures out of the way so you can go on to becoming a success yourself. Don’t be afraid of failure,” It suggests it IS equally important.

    I once went to a seminar of a billionaire named Bill Bartman who gifted gold coins to the participants.
    Along with his website etched into the coin, one side reads….never be awed by SUCCESS
    and the flip side of the coin… never be daunted by FAILURE He told a story of carrying that coin in his pocket, so just the presence of it would be his reminder… to NEVER quit nor give up.

    Teresa

    • Hello Teresa. Yes I meet Bill Bartman (the unknown billionaire) a few times when I was doing the speaking thing in the US. He has some great motivational stories,is a good speaker with an interesting life story. Thank you so much for leaving a comment. 🙂

    “Don’t be a quitter, be a failure instead” These words will stick with me for a very long time. Love it!

  • Shawn

    Hi there!
    You know what I say, success is just a failed failure and you can not fail at failure by quitting. 🙂

    Peter,
    Don’t forget Theodor Seuss Geisel in your story. A lot of people stop just before making anything if the work is too hard. The successful people keep going even if the work is hard and it does not look like the goal is getting closer. Don’t be a quitter because success is just around the next corner.
    John

    • Thank you John, Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known to the world as Dr. Seuss the writer of very clever childerns’ books. Yes so many people give up just before success knocks on the door, Thanks for your comment 🙂

  • Katie

    really enjoyed your article very thought provoking and is inspiring, and I agree it is better to be the failure than a quitter, because we only truly fail when we stop trying

  • Janette

    Hello Peter,

    My family would sit at the table playing games especially during the winter weekends. My little brother would get upset. My Dad would say, “Don’t quit, because quitters never win!” “You cannot change the past, and the past is not your future!
    Great blog!
    Thanks,

    EJ

    • Hello and thanks for the comment. Yes your Dad was right its not new wisdom but it good to be reminded of it sometimes. Thanks for reading and leaving a comment 🙂

  • Judy

    Hi Peter,
    I really enjoyed reading your post. I wish I would get done with all my failures so that I could succeed, at least once. Thanks for your encouraging words. I liked reading about the famous people who have failed, but then found their path. It’s possible, just have to keep trying. 🙂
    Judy

    • Hello Judy, We can all be famous just by never quitting (that’s what made them famous) Thanks for your comment. Appreciate you reading the post. 🙂
