Philippians 3:13-14 NKJ
Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I
do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to
those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of
the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
“The single most important difference between champion achievers
and average people is their ability to handle rejection and failure.”
“The increase in suicides, alcoholics, drug addiction, and even some
forms of nervous breakdowns are evidence that many people are
training for success when they should be training for failure.” – J.
Wallace Hamilton (Leadership magazine)
Ecclesiastes 7:20 GNT
There is no one on earth who does what is right all the time and
never makes a mistake.
Moving Forward from Failure:

  1. Accept responsibility.
    MOVING BACKWARD: MOVING FORWARD:
    BLAMES OTHERS ACCEPTS RESPONSIBILITY
    REPEATS SAME MISTAKES LEARNS FROM MISTAKES
    FEARS FAILING AGAIN UNDERSTANDS FAILURE IS
    PART OF PROCESS
    ALLOWS PAST FAILURES ALLOWS FAITH TO PUSH
    TO PUT LID ON LIFE THROUGH FAILURES
    WORRIES THAT PEOPLE REALIZES GOD VIEWS THEM
    WILL VIEW THEM THROUGH THE LENS OF
    THROUGH FAILURES RIGHTEOUSNESS
    THINKS “I’M A FAILURE.” THINKS “I NEED TO DO
    THINGS DIFFERENTLY!”
  2. See failure as temporary.
    2 Corinthians 4:17-18 NKJ
    For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a
    far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look
    at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For
    the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not
    seen are eternal.
    “There is no doubt in my mind that there are many ways to be a
    winner, but there is only one way to be a loser and that is to fail and
    not look beyond your failures.” – Kyle Rote Jr.
  3. Stop comparing yourself to others.
    2 Corinthians 10:12 NKJ
    For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those
    who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by
    themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not
    wise.
    Galatians 6:4 TLB
    Let everyone be sure that he is doing his very best, for then he will
    have the personal satisfaction of work well done and won’t need to
    compare himself with someone else.
  4. Strengthen yourself in the Lord.
    1 Samuel 30:1-6 NKJ
    Now it happened, when David and his men came to Ziklag, on the
    third day, that the Amalekites had invaded the South and Ziklag,
    attacked Ziklag and burned it with fire, and had taken captive the
    women and those who were there, from small to great; they did not
    kill anyone, but carried them away and went their way. So David and
    his men came to the city, and there it was, burned with fire; and their
    wives, their sons, and their daughters had been taken captive. Then
    David and the people who were with him lifted up their voices and
    wept, until they had no more power to weep. And David’s two wives,
    Ahinoam the Jezreelitess, and Abigail the widow of Nabal the
    Carmelite, had been taken captive. Now David was greatly
    distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of
    all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters.
    But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.
    Proverbs 24:16a NKJ
    For a righteous man may fall seven times and rise again…
  5. Never give up on what God has placed in your heart.
