Heading to 2008

This is the quote that's going to drive me into 2008 and the successes I hope to achieve:

"The difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is that successful people fail more."

So I'm saying... Bring on the failures! Because that's the secret!

Hope you've set some goals to make you a happier and healthier YOU!

See Ya Next Year!

Peace UP, Manic Style!

Wow, I must be the most successful person ever!!

Here's hoping you have more successes than failures this year. Happy New Year!

Peace Up!!

Happy New Year Manic!

I fail to see your point. Whoo hoo! I'm already on my way to success in '08! LOL! Writing = lots of rejections, God knows. Here's to great sales for our books in '08, Manic. Looking forward to your many manic adventures and news of your hangover. I have the cure on my blog, by the way.

Happy New Year.

Happy 2008! Yes, failure is one of the keys to success, unfortunately.

Love that quote. I couldnt agree 100% more. Because you learn from the failures of what to do next time. It happens for a reason.

Happy New Year to you and the entire manic clan.

That quote will make every person who sets a resolution and fails, know that success is still in reach. But, regardless, I am not setting a resolution for myself. I am certain I will have a year filled with failures and successes alike. So to that I wish you-- HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I like this, and I can attest that it's true. I've fallen flat on my face more times than I can count getting to where I am today.

Secret? Keep Bandaids on hand!!

Moll said...

Exactly. We are on the same page. I hope to fall flat on my face a few times so I can rise from the dust.

Happy New Year to you and yours!

Hey Manic. My resolution is to stop lurking and reveal myself as addicted to your blog.
My name's Rebecca and I'm a Manicaholic.
(everyone now) Hi, Rebecca.
BTW, this is the anchor lady who had the parallel high school reunion. Happy New Year and here's to spectacular failures!

Kate said...

Hi, Rebecca!

BTW, I prefer the term "Maniac" :)

Manic, that is so, so true! Here's to a year of many, many failures and lots of laughs at ourselves when we fall down. Who knows what successes will be possible if we can all step out into the unknown and try to do the scary things we want to do.

Happy New Year!

Going back to the thoughtful pressie hubby got me a new steering wheel for my car (which is probably the most amazing gift EVER) so now I just have to get him to help fit it - wonder how successful that'll be?!

Great quote!

Peace up!

happy new year manic!

Hope you had a wonderful Holiday and Happy New Year!

This is our last year being 30 something, I am going to cherish every minute of 2008! Hope you do too and keep up your fabulous work here.

Failures are just a part of life, and those who succeed are the ones who keep trying in spite of them!

You can't get what you don't reach for. The shit that just falls into your lap is usually the stuff no one wants.

Irene said...

That is a great quote! Most people don't think about that, they just think successful people are lucky. But many have a whole host of failures in their past.

Thanks for the reminder!!!
