Sink to Float

Example, you have a very important taste test on Wednesday, and Monday, your stocks got spoiled. You have to import those stocks from another country, which would take about a week or so...
Good God. Whatever happened? Why? Why? Why?
You said, "Boss, I blew it."
The next thing you know is, you're in a hellhole.
And when everything simmered down, you beseech the Source. Speak, Thou, your servant is listening...
"Failure is the foundation of success, and the means by which it is achieved."Lao Tzu
"Haste in every business brings failure." - Herodotus
"I have missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occassions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot . . . and missed. And I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why . . . I succeed."- Michael Jordan
Failure is a prerequisite for great success.If you want to succeed faster,double your rate of failure. Brian Tracy
"Remember the two benefits of failure. First, if you do fail, you learn what doesn't work; and second, the failure gives you the opportunity to try a new approach."
Roger Von Oech
"The better a man is, the more mistakes he will make, for the more new things he will try. I would never promote to a top-level job a man who was not making mistakes...otherwise he is sure to be mediocre." - Peter Drucker
"One’s best success comes after his greatest disappointments." ––Henry Ward Beecher
Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently." Henry Ford
"When one door closes another door opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us."Alexander Graham Bell
"Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor."Truman Capote
"Keep these concepts in mind: You've failed many times, although you don't remember. You fell down the first time you tried to walk. You almost drowned the first time you tried to swim. . . . Don't worry about failure. My suggestion to each of you: Worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try."Sherman Finesilver
"We pay a heavy price for our fear of failure. It is a powerful obstacle to growth. It assures the progressive narrowing of the personality and prevents exploration and experimentation. There is no learning without some difficulty and fumbling. If you want to keep on learning, you must keep on risking failure — all your life."John W. Gardner
"A shy failure is nobler than an immodest success."Kahlil Gibran
Pleasures, riches, honor and joy are sure to have care, disgrace, adversity and affliction in their train. There is no pleasure without pain, no joy without sorrow. Or the folly of expecting lasting felicity in a vale of tears, or a paradise in a ruined world."Gotthold
Before success comes in any man's life he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps, some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do."Napoleon Hill
"You'll come back, because yours is an error of knowledge, not a moral failure, not an act of surrender to evil, but only the last act of being victim to your own virtue. We'll wait for you and when you come back, you will have discovered that there need never be any conflict among your desires, nor so tragic a clash of values as the one you've borne so well."Ayn Rand
There. Get up.
