If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done?

Funny with that Winners never quit, and quitters never win expression.

If one succeeded to fail, one must have tried.
If one tried and succeeded, one did not quit.
If one did not quit, and succeeded in failure, then is failure based on the opportunity to quit, and winning on the capitalisation of that opportunity?
If winning is seizing the moment to not quit, and quitting is taking the opportunity to not win, which is the greater loss: Trying to fail and not quitting until you reach that goal, or quitting and failing to succeed in reaching that goal of failing?

I am confused :-)

you have definately failed. succeeding is way overated. ive turned failure into an art form. success scares the hell out of me. trying to succeed and failing is boring. thats what everyone does. but trying to fail and suceeding is a very successful failure.

any questions? :arrow: :? :x :wink:

I did a quick search on 'if at first you don't succeed’. My favorite rejoinder: 'do it the way the wife suggested'. Second favorite: 'so much for sky diving'.

I agree! Concentrating on failure takes some time to (purpusely mark the answer wrong on an exam) not try to succeed at any cost. :lol:

Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
