  Ladies and Gentlemen, good afternoon! I'm very glad to stand here and give you a short speech. Today my topic is Welcome Failure.

  " Many people dream of success. Success can only be achieved through repeated failure and introspection. Success represents the 1 percent of your work that results from the 99 percent that is called failure." Soichiro Honda, the founder of Honda said. When Honda Motor Company entered the US market in 1959. it endured failure after failure as it learned the hard way that little motorcycles popular in the Tokyo suburbs were not well received on the wide open roads of the USA. They eventually brought out a range of high powered bikes that became very popular.

  Many great successes started out as failures. Columbus failed when he set out to find a new route to India. He found America instead. Champagne was invented by a monk called Dom Pcrignon when a bottle of wine accidentally had a secondary fermentation. 3M invented glue that was a failure it did not stick. But it became the basis for the post it note, which was a huge success.

  Very often the best way to test an idea is not to analyze it but to try it. The organization that implements lots of ideas will most likely have many failures but it also will reap some mighty successes. By trying numerous initiatives we improve our chances that one of them will be a star. As Tom Kelley of 1DEO puts it. ??Fail often to succeed sooner. ~ In order to develop the coneept of the benefits of failure* Penn State University has ;t course for engineering students cidled Failure 101. The students have to take risks and do experiments. The more failures they have, the sooner they can get an A grade!

  What makes Silicon Valley so successful as the engine of high-tech growth? It is the Darwinian process of failure. Author Mike Malonc puts it like this. -Outsiders think of Silicon Valley as a success, but it is,in truth, a graveyard. 作文选Failure is Silicon Valley's greatest strength. Every failed product or enterprise is a lesson stored in the collective memory. We don't stigmatize failures we admire it. Venture Capitalists like to sec a little failure in the rsums of entrepreneurs."

  Even if the failure docs no! lewd directly to a success it can be seen as a step along the way. Edison's attitude to failure is salutaiy. When asked why so many of his experiments failed he explained that they were not failures. Each time he had discovered a method that did not work.

  In order to succeed, we need to get away from the idea thai everything should be a great success. Instead, we'd better welcome failure as if it were success, because each failure is a step along the road to success.

  Thank you!
