Proverbs 24:16 The righteous may fall seven times but still get up, but the wicked will stumble into trouble.
I have discovered failure is not bad, it’s the opportunity for you to grow and better yourself. Failure helps you to recognize the areas in your life that you need to evolve. Do not be afraid to fail because failure perfects you into the person you are destined to be. The more you fail you will acquire the tools that you need to succeed. The most successful people in the world have failed over and over and over again until they got it. There were many Biblical leaders who failed, but did they dwell on them? No they learned from their mistakes and kept on moving forward. Determination and failure leads to success. You fail and you get up and you try again.
Many times you have been so afraid to fail because you are scared of what your friends and family are going to say. You have allowed shame to fill you up and have ended up thinking that you are not good enough ,you fill like a loser which is not true. True failure is not even trying to get back up, but just quitting. God is always near and if you fall He’ll pick you up and dust you off. If God closes a door don’t worry because He has an even better one open for you. Spend time with Him in prayer and allow Him to guide your path.
Fear of failure has been the greatest stumbling block against your destiny and you achieving your dreams because you have been so afraid to fail that you have not been able to learn from your failures and be the best . I want you to always remember this, failure comes to help you be better than you were before. So let go of shame, disappointments, setbacks, let go of the negative voices around you and keep pressing forward and try again.
“A failure is not a loss. It’s a gain. You learn. You change. You grow.”-Michael Barata:
So embrace failure, entertain it, don’t run from it because failure is going to sharpen you and it’s gonna pull out the best out of you. You cannot succeed in life if you’ve not experienced certain failures in your life. In order to achieve a certain goal you going to have to get used to the thing called failure because failure will help you be the best version of yourself.
Don’t be afraid of it. You cannot be good at something without failing at it first. Even the great of the greats will tell you that they failed before they become millionaires or successful. They failed so many times and learned from there failures and that was the best thing that ever happened to them and caused them to be successful.
So I encourage you today don’t be afraid of failure, when you fail get back up again and try again don’t lose heart just remind yourself and know that even the great people we look up to failed before they became successful and achieved their dreams.
Your failure doesn’t mean you won’t achieve your dreams. The most people that have failed in life have been the most successful. So don’t let your your setback destroy you but bounce back from that setback and that means when you fail get back up again and keep pushing forward keep dreaming,keep pursuing those dreams until you see them come to pass.
Do not give up no matter how many times you fail, get back up again and try again because this thing called life you’re going to have to fail and fail so many times until you get it. The Bible says:
Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
The other day I was watching a video on YouTube that the actor Will Smith posted. He was talking about something so profound and powerful about failure and he said…….
Failure is a massive part of being able to be successful. You have to get comfortable with failure because that’s where the lessons are. And practice is controlled failure. So fail early, fail often ,fail forward- Will Smith
Just listening to him speak just took off that burden we always feel when we fail at something. Many times we get so hard on ourselves when we fail. We get so frustrated of the failure instead of learning from it. The more I have matured and gained wisdom I have realized it’s ok to fail. The secret to success is not letting your failure determine your future but it’s Embracing the lessons failure brings and learn from them and try again and win. When you fail always trust God will your life and know he got your back and He will never leave you nor forsake you. Have faith in God and get back on your feet.
Always remember this “Your failure is not a setback it’s an opportunity to bounce back”.
