STOP AND THINK – We must be willing to fail and to appreciate the truth that often “Life is not a problem to be solved, but a mystery to be lived.” (M. Scott Peck, late psychiatrist and author, quoting Friedrich Nietsche, 29th century philosopher)
These two principles are significant: 1) Failing is okay; in fact, we probably learn and grow more as a result of our failures than our successes. 2) Life is a mystery. When we look at our life as something to explore and enjoy, even through the unknown, we will discover purpose and achievement worthy of giving our best effort.
You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. (Psalm 16:11)
