My idea to embrace today:

Success and failure. We think of them as opposites, but they’re really not. They’re companions – the hero and the sidekick.  Laurence Shames

So true. When things are really tough, it is important to remember that life’s real failure is when you do not realize how close you were to success when you gave up.  In many cases, success is largely a matter of holding on after others have let go.
