Success Born Out of Defeat

1 Corinthians 15:58Therefore, 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 AdviceStand firm.  Failure will only be defeated if you learn from it and try again. And again, if necessary.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
