1 Corinthians 15:58 – Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. (NIV 1984)
My Musings – Thomas Edison had a lot more failures than he had successes. But we remember him for his successes. We would not remember him at all if he had allowed his failures to stop him from trying again.
“I am not judged by the number of times I fail, but by the number of times I succeed. And the number of times I succeed is in direct proportion to the number of times I can fail and keep on trying.” (Tom Hopkins, Author, motivational speaker and sales coach)
My Advice – Stand firm. Failure will only be defeated if you learn from it and try again. And again, if necessary.
