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

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

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

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

Failure doesn’t mean you don’t have it … it does mean that 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 that you have wasted your life … it does mean you have a reason to 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 idea.
