Winning Wisdom: The Learning Curve

Text: The Learning Curve [22/8/2016]

Topic: Proverbs 24:16

One of the best ways to learn is to encounter failures and disappointments. Life is never a straightforward affair; God never promised that. Failures and disappointments are the learning curves of life. That you failed at something doesn't mean you are a failure. Most people will say it is better to learn from people's failures. While that is true and indisputable, experience is still the best teacher.

It is okay to fail, but don't remain a failure. Remaining a failure is refusing to attempt success. Proverbs 24:16 says: "for a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again." No matter how many times you fail in your attempt at success, don't give up on your pursuit. But, the key to success in every similar attempt is learning from your failure. If you don't learn from it, you will keep on failing in every attempt. The lessons of failure must be imbibed, for success to come.

The lessons of failure make you realise what you did wrong, so you won't repeat the same mistake(s) again. It helps you have a better knowledge of what you failed at, employ better strategies, etc. Have you failed in ministry, relationship, business, career, job, etc? Use the lessons from such experiences for success in your next attempts. Remember, failures are the learning curves of life. Employ what you learn from them to achieve the success that you crave.

Keep winning daily.

Wise Action:
Take a note of the lessons you've learnt from the failures you have encountered. And map out the best solutions and strategies you would be employing to achieve the success you are aiming for.
