The temptation when the path to success gets too bumpy is to leap back into the comfort zone. Don't. Keep pushing forward, always forward. The comfort zone is the land of dreams and wishes. Success is the land of results, where all those dreams come true.
-- Mark Burnett

Success can only be achieved through repeated failure and introspection. In fact, success represents 1 percent of your work, which results from the 99 percent that is called failure.
