Failure does not equal defeat; they are two separate things. Failure is a part of every life; everyone fails at times. Defeat is when you don’t rebound, but instead allow failure to turn what could be a successful life into a wasted one through self-pity and fear of the opinions of men. Feelings of inferiority are Satan’s attempts to deny the power of God within you.
One good thing about failure is that you appreciate the victory all the more.It’s not the failing that counts, but what you do with it. No one has ever made a discovery, won a victory, or had a breakthrough without first experiencing some failures, yet refusing to let those failures defeat them.
Failing is often God’s way of helping you to zero in on His highest and best. As your own programs crumble into dust, He’s right there with a new blueprint for something much better.
You can fail many times—in different things—and you will. But you’re not a failure as long as you keep getting up and trying again. Always remember that there’s a difference between failure, —which happens many times in our lives, and being a failure —which only happens if we decide to give up and quit.
There’s a big difference between saying “I fail” and “I’m a failure.” There’s no disgrace in saying the first—which is just a fact of life—but you should never say “I’m a failure” unless you’ve decided to give up. No one is a failure who can truly say, “I have done my best.”
