Thank God for Failure

Failure is a natural part of life. You won’t fail at everything (hopefully) but you most certainly will fail at some things. When failure knocks at your door, learn and then move quickly on. Don’t dwell on the failure, but use it to your advantage – to become a bit more creative, to be a motivator to overcome, to be an impetus for evaluation and the setting of new goals. Failure can be a positive in your life if you allow it to be.

If your top priority is to avoid all failure, failure is a given. Only when you are ready to accept failure will you have the possibility of success. Success comes, like failure, when you DO something - never any other way.

No one wants failure, but when it comes, let it be a positive influence in your life rather than a devastating one. The next step you take determines the kind of person you are and the person you will become. Thank God for your failures. You become better because of them.
