You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space. (Johnny Cash)

Setting a goal is not the main thing. It is deciding how you will go about achieving it and staying with that plan. (Tom Landry) 

I recently saw a video on Facebook – a young man (teenager) was skinny and wanted to build up his physique.  He had a goal.  One day, he decided to take steps toward that goal.  He started working out.  It wasn’t easy.  At first, he felt like a failure, because he couldn’t even do a pull up. He didn’t give up.  After a year of pushing himself, he reached his goal.  He was no longer a skinny teen; he now had an enviable physique. And he had learned an important life lesson.  He realized that failure is a key to success.  A goal is simply that, unless we take action, accept our failures; and never give up.

 

I need to take heed of that lesson.  How about you?
