Almost every human being has failed at something before. Even Jesus on his way to Calvary fell a couple of times, but He still went ahead to die to save mankind.
Here what these two great individuals said about defeat and failure;
- “You will face many defeats in your life, but never allow yourself to be defeated”. (Maya Angelou)
- “I failed some subjects in exam, but my friend passed in all. Now he is an engineer in Microsoft and I am the owner of Microsoft.” (Bill Gates)
You failed, so what? The challenge isn’t to do with one or two defeats or failures in life but the ability to get up and start again. Be encouraged if you have failed before. I personally failed four times in my bid to get a professional license as a nurse. It wasn’t because I was so daft or unintelligent. In the end I passed the exam on the fifth and last attempt. And you know what, it was a colleague senior nurse and my mate at the University who prepared me for that victorious exam. God bless Sir Bright.
There are many lessons I’ve learnt from that experience and those moments have taught me so much in life. I felt hopeless at a point. It was as if all my colleagues had gone ahead of me in life. But throughout that period I discovered my true self and divine purpose. I gained so much wisdom and experience in other spheres of life. Now I’m not even working as a nurse (I may come back to nursing later) but I am fulfilled in the path I’m on today. I am a preacher, a writer, a motivational speaker and a musician. And of course I AM STILL A QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL GRADUATE NURSE. My failure has become a blessing in disguise.
YOU FAILED AND SO WHAT? GET UP AGAIN. SHAKE OFF THE DUST. PLAN AGAIN. PRAY TO GOD AND MAKE A MOVE
You shall share your story to inspire others someday to come. Don’t Give Up.
Apostle Peter-(HOPES ARENA)
