Failure Might Just Make You Mad Enough to Succeed

How do you handle failure? Do you fall apart? Do you quit? Or, do you get so mad you do something to change it – to change you?

I CAN Get Better
I can’t change my circumstance, but I sure as heck can change me. I CAN become better. I CAN learn from each and every mistake. I CAN continue pressing on no matter how much I’ve failed, no matter how others view me, and no matter what odds are against me.

I CAN Get One Step Closer 
Will I become everything I want I hoped to? Will I achieve every goal or dream? I don’t know but, if I try, I can definitely become BETTER. I can get closer to my goals and dreams if I keep pressing on. But if I quit, I don’t just stay the same – I actually become worse, weaker, and further from my goal every single day I neglect to chase it.

I CAN Let Failure Fuel Me
One thing I know is I will use every ill word, every lame opinion, every frustrating obstacle and every negative comment to FUEL ME to become stronger and better. I will not let it destroy me, or my spirit.

I CAN Face Our Fears
I will not let my own doubt, insecurities, failures or fears paralyze me. I will face my fears head on and trust that God will give me the strength to handle everything that comes my way so that I can become everything He has designed me to be.

I CAN Press On
Today I decide, once again, to “keep showing up”.

  1. Love it, goes along with one of my posts earlier (kinda) and today I’m trying to focus on Philippians 4:13 which goes along w/your “I can face our fears” comment!
