Success is Not Final, Failure is Not Fatal
Winston Churchill once said, "Success is not final.
Failure is not fatal. The courage to continue is what counts." And he was right.
It's not the size of the man, or who he surrounds himself with. It's not the
things he has or has not done that make him who he is. It's what lies in a man
that makes him who he is, and what he does with what is in him.
We all have two personalities. Two personas that live inside of us each day and
struggle to be the one that comes out into the world each and every moment of
our lives. The one personality that lies inside of us is the person we could be
if we really chose to be. The positive side of us that creates amazing things in
the world. That dances to the beat of their own drum. The side of us that knows
what it wants, and chases what it wants with all that it is. The personality in
us that has passion, and drive, and won't give up no matter what the cost or
what the obstacle in front may be. The part of us that loves, and cares, and
wants to help other people in any way possible. The side of us that knows what
beauty in the world is, and what peace and happiness are all about.

part of our personality that never took the time to grow and develop and
accomplish more with it's life. The side of us that gets to it's death bed, and
has a box full of wishes that were never fulfilled, and dreams that never stood
a chance. The part of us that could come out and be us, if we open up and refuse
to move forward. The side that will win, if we don't have the courage to
We all have the side of us who has the choice of success or failure. It makes no
difference if success is final, or if failure is fatal. What matters is your
ability, your willingness to keep going no matter what. To get back up when you
are knocked down time and time again. To choose the positive side of you that
knows the taste of failure, and the sweet smell of success. The side of you that
knows what it is like to dream, and to chase a dream with so much passion that
it burns when you slow down. Choose the side of you that knows what happiness
and peace are, and that is willing to find it no matter how much you must
change. The side that will realize a life full of prosperity and accomplishment
no matter what personal demons you have to over come. The side of you, that no
matter where the path may lead, decides to pave it's own path on the journey of
