Good failure? We must learn how to fail intelligently, for failing is one of the greatest arts, if not the greatest, in the world. Always try to honestly face defeat; never to try to fake success. Second, and as important, exploit the failure; don’t waste failure. Learn all you can from it. Finally, never, never use failure as an excuse for not trying again; there is nothing more conducive to success than failure itself.
Think about it. You and I need to learn to fail intelligently. It’s an art. We need to teach the highly educated person that it is not a disgrace to fail and that he must analyze every failure to find its cause.
God’s Word tells us: “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged” (Joshua 8:1).
Failure is a natural part of progressive living. Face it. Learn from it, and don’t make excuses for failure. Our Heavenly Father has this advice: There’s no other way to put it but, “if you don’t succeed, try again.”You could call that art at its greatest and finest. It’s so rare to find someone willing to use failure to succeed. That, I believe, is a perfect definition of art.
“I pray today in Jesus name that when failure comes knocking at our door we open it and welcome it into our lives. Lord, help us to understand how failure makes us better than we were before.” Amen!
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
