231004 – Fail Forward

READ: Galatians 6:9

Failure is inescapable. You will face it. You will struggle through it. You must be willing to leverage your failures to reveal your vulnerabilities. This will help you rebuild, readjust, and reorient. You need to be thinking of continuous improvement and identifying the crucial changes necessary for growth.

Failure is actually good! It means you took a risk. It means you did something that scared you. And here is more good news! Failure is not a dead-end, it’s just a delay.

Whenever you fail, ask yourself these questions:

  • What were my mistakes?
  • Did any bad habits trigger my failure?
  • What can I learn from this?
  • What is my next move? 
 Life is a lot like learning to walk. You take a step, stumble, then fall. When you fall, be sure to get back up. You will grow stronger, smarter, and more resilient every time you stand back up.
