I do not share the above to draw attention to me. My motivation is to encourage you to change the way you look at your circumstances and your experience. Falling down — or stumbling — no longer has to be the measure of your shame. Falling down no longer needs to remind you of where you do not measure up. Falling down no longer has to define your experience. Falling down can instead remind you to get back up again — and keep moving.
People of mediocre ability sometimes achieve outstanding success, because they don’t know when to quit. Most men succeed because they are determined to- George E. Allen
Be encouraged my friend because more will be revealed to you. You can get up and you can move forward. You have not failed. You have been given the opportunity to rise again. As you rise, you will learn to use what you have — in ways that work for you. You will learn valuable lessons. You will be given new opportunities. Possibilities will be revealed to you. You will be led in the direction of your destiny.
Be encouraged my friend because you are in the process of being promoted — because THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS FAILURE!
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” Winston Churchill
