Writing Tip: Accepting Failure (Spotlight: Denis Waitley)

Yesterday, I talked about failure. But I am not the only one who has discussed failure, in fact, I believe that every author has probably mentioned something to that nature at least once in their lives. One such author is Denis Waitley.

Denis Waitley is an American motivational speaker who wrote the Bestseller The Psychology of Winning and he is also responsible for the following quote:

“Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.” – Denis Waitley

So again, I encourage you to accept the possibility and reality of failure in your own lives and careers but to never let it stop you!

  1. If we always succeeded the first time we tried something, we’d never learn. At least, I know I learned a lot from abandoning so many WIPs and failing to finish my drafts! 😂
