Words of Wisdom: Failure

I like to read, unfortunately playing a lot of WoW don’t leave much room for that these days among other things. I have a vast personal library of books that contain a vast amount of wisdom between those pages. WoW is much a game built on killing things, leveling and overcoming failure in given tasks from questing to raiding. Its all perspective. So a few thoughts to ponder on your WoW adventure or raid because whether you know it or not, you and your group have to overcome things to succeed. Its a given fact that people hate to fail.

Failure
Drifting without aim or purpose, is the first of thirty major causes of failure.
Edison failed ten thousand times before perfecting the incandescent electric light bulb. Don’t worry if you failed once.
Many men have found opportunities in failure and adversity which they could not recognize in more favorable circumstances.
Success requires no explanations, failures must be doctored with alibis.
There is a vast difference between failure and temporary defeat. No one may succeed until he/she recognizes the nature of this difference.
A man is never a failure until he/she accepts defeat as permanent and quits trying.
Most failures could have been converted into successes if someone had held on another minute or made one more effort.
Success attracts success and failure attracts failure, because of the law of harmonious attraction.
Failure is not a disgrace if you have sincerely done your best.
If you have no major purpose you are drifting toward certain failure.
Failure seems to be natures plan for preparing men for great responsibilities.
If you don’t know why you failed, you are no wiser than when you began.
The path to success is riddled with many attempts and failures.
By Napoleon Hill: Succeed and Grow Rich Through Persuasion.


Its all perspective. In questing, leveling & raiding in WoW every bit of that is use full even for a game. Its a game that takes group effort, teamwork and combined guild effort in raids and leadership. We all fail at a quests and encounters or in a group sometimes. At some point we will face death and have to do graveyard runs. Failure is not the end or has to be, it temporary setback. Try and try again using different tactics. If everyone learned from their failure then you are better than you were before because you attempted and failed. That puts you one step closer to success on a Quest, a Instance or a Raid.
