#MidnightMadness – 4/29/2017

Thoughts on failure…

I don’t think I fail because I’m a failure, but rather I fail because I’m an overachiever.  One who sets personal goals extremely high, setting myself up for failure every single time.

What about you?  Do you do this too?  ~M

  1. I was like that up until my 50s. Suddenly life slows down (when I retired) and my focus changed. “I’ve met the enemy and that’ll be me!” I’ve paraphrased another famous person’s quote!
    I was taken here this morning during my devotional, maybe to share with you: “My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones. Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine. My son, do not despise the Lord ‘s discipline or be weary of his reproof, for the Lord reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights.”
    ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:1-12‬ ‭ESV‬‬

  3. I sometimes feel the same way, that maybe a sign I should set lower goals or maybe I’m expecting too much of myself.

  4. Failure is usually a mind setting. I also set my goals very high and I sometimes have to compromise on the achievement of them.
