Life is all about producing results. In life, you are either going forward or going backwards. There is no stagnation in reality. When the realities of life kick you from behind, do no fall. Even if you do, pick something up. Lean something from what happened to you and move fast for greater success.
One of the greatest motivators I know is Thomas Edison. After he’d tried 9,999 times to perfect the light bulb and hadn’t succeeded, someone asked him, “Are you going to have ten thousand failures?” He answered, “I didn’t fail. I just discovered another way not to invent the electric light bulb”.
“The turning point in the lives of those who succeed usually comes at the moment of some crisis, through which they are introduced to their ‘otherselves'” noted Napoleon Hill. You cannot travel the road to success without a puncture or two. people are not remembered by how few times they failed, but by how often they succeed. Do not look where you fell, but where you slipped.An error does not become a mistake until you refuse to correct it.
You can learn something new from your mistakes. Don’t condemn yourself. Don’t give up on yourself. Don’t surrender cheaply to failure. Mistakes are temporary detours and should not be given permanent address. The meek is teachable. Learn to be wise!
SAY THIS ALOUD NOW!
Every mistake I made in the past is gone! Today, I learn to be progressive. I learn to make prosperity my second name. I am a new creature because old things are passed away. I become wiser in Jesus name, Amen!
