The challenge for business owners is to know when it's time to take a break and
     spend time with the family, catch up with friends,have a game of golf etc.

     Christmas time is often a time when the business owner is forced to close the
     business and take a well deserved rest.  

     It gives them time to spend with loved ones and have some rest and relaxation.
     It is also a good time too quietly reflect on recent business results without any
     day to day distractions.  

     The challenge here it to not stress out or feel discouraged if things didn't quite work
     out to plan and you did not achieve what you set out to over the past 12 months.

Is failure always a bad thing? What if you viewed it as a learning experience? Failure is usually only temporary unless you do not learn from it.

What really is failure? Could it be a learning experience that helps you achieve success?

"Without failure you never really achieve any innovation and/or long-lasting change?"

What if you never experienced any level of failure? Is it possible that without failure you never really achieve any innovation and/or long-lasting change? Remember the legend Thomas Edison? He failed 10,000 times prior to his amazing success in inventing the light bulb. What if Edison had had given up after the first 10, 20 or even 100 times?

Often failure is just the elimination of the options that did not work. Focus on eliminating the options that do not work and accelerate your achievement of success.

" Failure is just the elimination of the options that did not work"
