As we try and fail, we learn what not to do, we make adjustments, and we file experiences under a super power column called wisdom. (Malcolm Forbes, late American entrepreneur)
It is probably true that no one wants to fail, but it’s also true that we all do at one time or another and likely more than once. The worst kind of failure, of course, is to simply quit trying. But Forbes’ idea can really be helpful. Make the necessary changes to avoid the same mistakes and learn, gaining that “super power,” wisdom that will help you succeed the next time.
If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking (James 1:5).
