STOP AND THINK – The person who succeeds is not the one who holds back, fearing failure, nor the one who never fails—but rather the one who moves on in spite of failure. (Charles Swindoll, minister and author)

Because the future is unknown, many are hesitant to try something new or to take an unknown path. No one likes to fail, but it’s important to learn that mistakes and failures are among life’s best teachers. It follows, then, that if we hope to accomplish something significant, we must plan carefully, move forward with courage, and learn from our mistakes.

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans (Proverbs 16:3).
