Day 115:

Boost your self-esteem by understanding that there is no such thing as failure - only results....

In NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) we believe that there are only results or feedback. The way to success is to have a precise goal. Take action. Did the action take you nearer to the goal? If yes, then refine and repeat the action. If not then change your approach and take a different action. If you do the above and persist, success is guaranteed to you.

Napoleon Hill the author of arguably the best motivational book ("Think and grow rich") tells the story of talking to Thomas Edison about the invention of the light bulb. Hill asked the great inventor, "Mr. Edison weren't you discouraged when you had tried 10,000 different ways of producing the incandescent light and you had failed...." Edison interrupted him and said, "On the contrary, Mr. Hill, I had not failed. I had succeeded in discovering 10,000 ways of not producing the light bulb and I knew that if I continued I would soon run out of all the different ways of not producing a light bulb and that's exactly what happened."

So remember that there is no such thing as failure, only results and persist. You will succeed. You will boost your self-esteem.
