Failure really isn't terrible if you can say to yourself, "Hey, I know I'm gonna be successful at what I want to do someday." Failure doesn't become a big hangup then because it's only temporary.

Man, this guy must've read my mind or pulled it from a writer's creed or something. :) Isn't that what every writer says to themselves after they receive their 50th or 100th or 250th rejection? Honestly, this is what I said to myself on my path to becoming a published author and I continue to keep plodding away and learning from every "failure" that comes my way.
