Great accomplishments are often attempted but only occasionally reached. (Charles Swindoll, pastor and author)

That might sound pretty discouraging, but Swindoll continues, “Those who reach them are usually those who missed many times before.” One mistake or one failure should not be the end of trying. We learn by doing, and we may learn more from our errors, so don’t stop when you make a mistake. Keep working hard, learning as you go, and looking ahead positively.

Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything (James 1:4).
