A failure isn't a failure if it prepares you for success tomorrow.

The most remarkable Lolo Jones quotes that are little-known but priceless

Greatness finds us by obstacles in front of us.

I don’t look at hurdles as obstacles blocking my path but opportunities to overcome.

Sometimes bad things are going to happen in your life, and those things can make you stronger if you just learn how to get over them.

Success is always an easier motivator, because you want more of it.

But I've also been motivated by failure. Had I medaled in London, I don't think I would be one of the few that have gone to a Summer and Winter. I would have been content with that medal. Instead, I used that failure to go to the Winter Olympics. I always tell people that failure can be one of your biggest motivators if you just have an attitude adjustment about it.


I never have prayed to win a gold medal at Olympics and never will.

The Lord is my Shepard and I shall not want. May His will be done.
