The consequence of the Bay of Pigs failure wasn't an acceptance of Castro and his control of Cuba but, rather, a renewed determination to bring him down by stealth.
Failure builds muscle,
determination, and dreams.
Determination is frequently found in failure, but it is never found in defeat.
Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.
Dreams create desire. Desire creates determination. Determination creates distance between you and failure.
A failure establishes only this, that our determination to succeed was not strong enough.
Success comes with failure which leads to doubts but with determination we can still achieve.
(The psuedoscience of planning seems almost neurotic in its determination to imitate empiric failure and ignore empiric success.)
The determination in your heroic effort
Will permeate your mind and heart
Even after your success or failure
Is long forgotten.
The difference between success and failure isn't the absence of fear but the determination to pursue your heart's desires no matter how scared you are.
Doubts kill more dreams than failure ever will. Fear is faith in reverse. Fear creates doubt. Replace your fears with faith and your doubts with determination.
Never go backward. Attempt, and do it with all your might. Determination is power.
Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.
