In fact, it’s normal.

The more you embrace your shortcomings, and learn from failings, the better you become. At what? At life. People who struggle with failing tend to focus only on not doing so, and lose sight of the bigger picture. 

Life is filled with opportunities. To grow, adapt, and learn. Ultimately to become a better person. Choosing a ‘win’ mentality changes your identity, your idea of worth, and how you work with less than ideal situations. Failure, especially how it impacts your personal sense of well being, is a shaping tool for the character within.

As I prepare for another week of speaking to young people, that is one item I hope to leave them with for a life time. God has designed you to grow, change, adapt… Create. And that will always come with some measure of failure.
