One who fears failure limits his activities. Failure is only the opportunity to more intelligently begin again. - Henry Ford 

Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.- Winston Churchill

The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. - Ralph Waldo Emerson 

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. - Michael Jordan

turn that frown upside down

A very positive attitude, experience or time in life, education, training, always keep learning, and if you fail get back up (sometimes you get the wind knocked out of you) Hurricane Frances/Jeanne 2004 and car accidents 2002 & 2010. I also really think luck, timing, creativity, flexibility, (spouse) and a niche all play a super role in your entrepreneurial success.

Be prepared for emergencies by being well insured (some states allow up to 50k for PIP), money tucked away in savings or 401k. Be able to start your business without a salary for two years.
