Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.
General George Patton
If there is anything one could learn from General Patton is that he didn’t accept anything less than perfection. This is a man who was extremely outspoken and that caused him his own consequences, however he didn’t allow that to tear him down. He bounced back with a vengeance in WWII and proved to have a short memory when it came to defeat or lack of perfection.
I highly suggest that you watch the 1970 critically acclaimed film, Patton, with George C. Scott and you can see the man who truly lived by the words quoted above.
