Let's look at the definition of fail.
Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed on an equal or greater benefit.
Nothing in that definition means PERMANENT... Yes we're going to fall and miss the mark, but SO WHAT!? When our children are toddlers learning how to walk and talk, we wouldn't dare say to them "give up", "go sit down and stop trying", "it's not going to work for you", but that's what we tell ourselves almost on a daily basis, and that needs to stop!
We've got to stop being scared to fail. Failure is simply learning something new, learning a new way to do something. Successful people learn how to fail fast, learn from it, and apply the wisdom they learned from their "failure" to their future successes. But you will never get to this point if you give up every time something doesn't go the way you thought it should. When an apple seed goes into the ground, the tree is already in it.
The same is true for us as well. When we were created our purpose was inside of us too, and it's up to us to cooperate with the Holy Spirit to manifest the person you and I were created to be.
So we will fail, according to Wikipedia, but we can always get back up, learn from it, and apply it to our future successes. I fail often, and I look forward to the days when I am able to learn the lesson out of the failure, and I want to teach you how!
If you have ever taken any of my classes you know I love to teach in acronym form, so take notes or print this out and hang it somewhere you're going to see it every day until it is imprinted into your subconscious mind!
WARNING: If you apply just ONE of these habits your life will change drastically!
