Building self confidence and determination are extremely important personality traits honed while growing up.

It means you aren't afraid of tackling difficult problems, and that failure is simply a learning experience.

Damn right I believe this will all my heart!

And this and other struggles will make you a better man.

If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,   
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,   
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son

I was disappointed in meeting so many people during my career, that were so afraid of failure that they didn't even try.

I even had a discussion with a fellow engineer about that.  He couldn't understand a lack of fear for the potential of failure.  He said he simply couldn't take the chance.

For 40+ years, I told my bosses that if they felt I failed them, to fire me.  I was looking for a job when I found this one.

I secretly suspect that they kept me on just to torment me.

The answer is always no...if you don't ask.

Failure is awesome! It means you tried.  Pick up the bits and parts, spit out your teeth, and get back in the fight.

Man, this is SO true. You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.  Sometimes, though, you hit a shot out of your wildest dreams. Seen it happen. Lived it.

The "no's" get forgotten, but the hits totally eclipse the misses.
