Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.

–Thomas J. Watson, (1874-1956), former President of IBM, one of the richest men of his time and called the world’s greatest salesman when he died in 1956
