I was decluttering and found this again.  It sure pays to de-clutter in more ways than ten:

Failure doesn’t mean you are a failure…  It does mean you haven’t succeeded yet.

Failure doesn’t mean you have accomplished nothing…  It does mean you learned something.

Failure doesn’t mean you have been a fool…  It does mean you have a lot of faith.

Failure doesn’t mean you have been disgraced…  It does mean you are 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 have reason to start afresh.

Failure doesn’t mean you should give up…  It does mean you should try harder.

Failure doesn’t mean you’ll 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 idea!



Thanks for sharing what you have seen Alan. Yes I think there's more pressure on the young these days to be a SUCCESS. To be so, so young and feel that life is over. Please keep trying to help them as much as you can. We need to allow children to be children. Young adults to make mistakes. Cause God knows, older adults STILL make mistakes all the time. We fail all the time. Self ACCEPTANCE. Self LOVE. I think we all need more of that.
Well failure can be a lot of things and failure can be hard but you touched on subject that now I try to help people on myself, see growing up in my teens I thought I was a failure, the way things were going at the time wasn't good, I had a nice car decent job no girl though the one piece of the puzzle I couldn't quite get a handle on, but it came around for me but i see so many teens and ones on their 20's call themselves a failure it's not funny I see it a lot girls whom have gave up on them selves and just accept an abusive boyfriend /husband because they say they can do no better, I told one that lives in one of the rentals we keep up I said kinda hateful to her why is a beautiful girl like you in this situation ? First she says it's what she wants I'm like ok and go on for a while and she comes over and tells me why she got to meddling into drugs, smoking, drinking running around she said she was a failure, I said as long as you believe that you will be, only you can change it, once a person gets into these things it's usually something that they see all the rest of their lives, but she saw I recognized her problems and thanked me for caring, and it's so easy now more then ever to say life's a failure and everyone in it, I meet so many that play the lottery to really hope they will become rich and it would probably be a nice thing but when you are spending $50 on lottery tickets as one told me I will get rich and be someone important, I'm like well if you did win what would you do most say they would be my them a nice car a payoff all their bills and that's great but with that kind of wealth I don't think a lot can handle it, but it all comes down to people failing at it seems everything and they are just scratching g to find away makes me sad but all I really do is keep places going and collect their rent money, so this day and age unfortunately teens come out or the schools already thinking they are a failure, so they turn to easy money or anything to have a few dollars at the end of the week some to actually get their car fixed each week, but somehow we all go through stuff and we as humans learn I hope have a great night :)
