Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently. (Henry Ford, automaker)

Or, as Charles Swindoll writes, “Failures are only temporary tests to prepare us for permanent triumphs.” No one likes to fail, but we all do at one time or another. That does not make us a failure unless we don’t start again and work for correction and improvement. A positive attitude toward failure will improve both our attitude and our work effort.

Though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again, (Proverbs 24:16).
