Only wrong 90% of the time

"Now, I don't have a perfect track record. No one does. But I'm pretty fucking good. On average I only get it wrong eight or nine times out of ten."

- Steven Stelfox in Kill Your Friends by John Niven

Or

"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways which won't work."

- Thomas A. Edison on inventing the light bulb

I can't think of any examples of people who did anything great without first failing multiple times.

The key part of failure that lots of people forget, however, is to learn from the failures and mistakes along the way.

"A man who never makes a mistake will never make anything."

- Mr. Phelps
