What Failure Does, and Doesn’t Mean

track sprinters

Failure doesn’t mean that you are a failure; it does mean you haven’t yet succeeded.

Failure doesn’t mean that you have accomplished nothing; 

it does mean that you have learned something.

Failure doesn’t mean that you have been a fool; it does mean you have a lot of faith.

Failure doesn’t mean that you have been disgraced; it does mean that you were willing to try.

Failure doesn’t mean you don’t have it; it does mean you have to do something in a different way.

Failure doesn’t mean you are inferior; it does mean you are not perfect.

Failure doesn’t mean you’ve wasted your life; it does mean you can start afresh.

Failure doesn’t mean you should give up; it does mean you must try harder.

Failure doesn’t mean you will never make it; it does mean it will take a little longer.

Failure doesn’t mean God has abandoned you; it does mean God has a better way.
