Tony Horton, fitness celebrity and star creator of the immensely popular P90X video workout series says in his book The Big Picture:
“There’s nothing wrong with failing. In fact, failure needs a new name. “Failure” should be renamed “Awesome.” Everyone loves awesome... Most folks think of failure as the opposite of success, but I beg to differ.
It’s like what Winston Churchill said: “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”
