I came across these thoughts about failing and thought I would pass them on. . .


Here are some things to remember when something you attempt fails.

  • Failure is an event, not a person.
  • Failure isn’t final.
  • Failure is often the first step toward success.
  • A ministry that has stopped failing has stopped growing.
  • Failure is not an option, it is a necessity.
  • If you fail and don’t learn from it, you’ve failed twice. Don’t waste a failure.
  • The antidote to the fear of failure isn’t success, but small doses of failure. (Credit to Mark Batterson for a similar quote.)
Any thoughts about failing? We will not always succeed as we desire. That is not failing . . . failing is not trying. My definition of failure is ~ failure is not attempting something which is in your power to attempt.
