It won’t break you –

Unless you allow it to do so. You may feel it has, but failure doesn’t have to define you. The choice of how you respond to failure is always up to you.

Failure have a different effect on different people .Some got disappointed and some learn a lesson and next time remain alert if the same situation occurred in life.If anyone feel difficulty in the learning phase then custom essay writing poweredessays.com offer services to deal with your failure.

  2. One thing I keep telling myself and others is that sometimes we don't know the right thing to do until we do the wrong thing first, then we will know the right thing to do.

  3. Brother Ron, my name is RockieSue and II was a pastor's wife for 30 years. My husband and I were also church planters for several years in the state of Florida. My husband, Lane, has recently retired, but my ministry is now encouraging and helping others still working in the ministry. My book, It's Hard to Drain the Swamp When Yer up to Yer Ears in Alligators! was written for this precise purpose as well as to teach church members how to better support their pastors. I'm currently maintaining a blog to help assist with this purpose. I'm contacting you because I have really enjoyed reading your articles. Let me encourage you to take a look at my site and check out my ministry. With our goals so closely related, I would love to be a guest blogger on your site. My material can be found at http://www.rockiesue.com.

  4. I agree. Failure might just make you. More often than not, failure is something that pushes me to move forward. To figure out why that particular thing didn't work and to get back up on the horse and try again. Failure also keeps me humble and reminds me that I am not God's gift to the world, His Son was. Always healthy to get one of those reminders from time to time.
