Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts. (Winston Churchill, former British prime minister and author)

After diligent preparation and hard work, it’s sometimes difficult for a person who has achieved some worthy accomplishment to realize that such an effort is only one step forward. Success in one endeavor is not the end. There is always more to do. Likewise, if you don’t succeed in one area, again, it’s not the end. You must move on with courage.

[The Lord] holds success in store for the upright (Proverbs 2:7). Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong (1 Corinthians 16:13).
