Learn Through Failure

How many times have you failed at something? A business closed? A ministry didn’t work? A partnership dissolved?

When asked about experiences, do you talk only about the good times?

Sometimes we learn best from our failures.

We developed the wrong business model for the times and product. (I did that.)

We picked the wrong partners. (Guilty.)

We tried leading a service opportunity that fell flat. (Been there.)

Bragging of our successes teaches no one–including ourselves.

Self-evaluating where we’ve fallen short is a sure path toward growth.
