The greatest barrier to success is
the fear of failure.

Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.

The successful man will profit from his mistakes and try again in a different way.

Sven Goran Eriksson

Winston Churchill

Dale Carnegie


   Bad is Good


Vadim Kotelnikov quotes

Fail small to succeed big on your way of

making your dreams come true.

There is the greatest practical benefit in making a few failures early in life.

I have not failed 700 times. I have not failed once. I have succeeded in proving those 700 ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work.

If you're not failing every now and again, it's a sign you're not doing anything
very innovative.

Aldous Huxsley

Thomas Edison

Woody Allen



Vadim Kotelnikov quotes

In radical innovation, every step forward is a step into terra incognita where opportunities are guides and failures are teachers.

The essential part of creativity
is not being afraid to fail.

Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.

There are a thousand excuses for every failure but never a good reason.

Greta Scacchi

Henry Ford

Mark Twain







If you have made mistakes… there is always another chance for you.. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down.

A man should never be ashamed to own that he has been in the wrong, which is but saying... that he is wiser today than yesterday.

The majority of men meet with failure because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail.

Mary Pickford

Jonathan Swift

Napoleon Hill



Vadim Kotelnikov quotes

Innovators win by struggling through failures toward breakthrough success,
managers win by avoiding failures.

Show me a thoroughly satisfied man, and I'll show you a failure.

Don’t have any meetings about your web strategy. Just do stuff. First you have to fail, then you can improve.

Winners are not afraid of losing. But losers are. Failure is a part of the process of success. People who avoid failure also avoid success.

Thomas Edison

Seth Godin

Robert Kiyosaki





Failures are like skinned knees – painful but superficial.

There is no failure except in no longer trying.

Take a deep breath, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again.

Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
