Failure

Failure doesn’t mean you are a failure… it does mean you haven’t succeeded yet.

Failure doesn’t mean you have accomplished nothing … it does mean you have learned something.

Failure doesn’t mean you have been a fool … it does mean you had a lot of faith.

Failure doesn’t mean you’ve been disgraced … it does mean you were willing to try.

Failure doesn’t mean you don’t have it … it does mean you have to do something in a different way.

Failure doesn’t mean you are inferior … it does mean you are not perfect.

Failure doesn’t mean you’ve wasted your life… it does mean you have a reason to start afresh.

Failure doesn’t mean you should give up… it does mean you must try harder.

Failure doesn’t mean you’ll never make it … it does mean it will take a little longer.

Failure doesn’t mean God has abandoned you … it does mean God has a better idea.
