Description - Fail Better by Herter Studio

In our rush to succeed, few of us see the merit in failure. This little gem of a book helps introduce perspective in our lives by reminding us that unaccepted failure is just a step toward success. Motivational quotes that inspire readers toward action are paired with real life tales of failure followed by persistence and eventual triumph. Did you know: Michael Jordan failed to make his high school varsity basketball team. Albert Einstein's teacher described him as "mentally slow, unsociable, and adrift forever in his foolish dreams." An MGM executive described Fred Astaire as, "Can't act. Can't sing. Slightly bald." Winston Churchill lost every election for public office until he became Prime Minister of England at the age of 62. Walt Disney went bankrupt several times. Fail Better is the perfect antidote to the disappointment that follows our failures. It gives graduates a healthy dose of post-graduate perspective; provides a pick-me-up for workers who feel a little low on the totem pole; and comforts aspiring artists who, like Vincent Van Gogh, might have only sold one painting in their lifetime.
