Failure Is Never Final

Failure is never final!

The only time you can’t afford to fail is the very last time you try.  Failure doesn’t mean you are a failure; it just means you haven’t yet succeeded.

Failure doesn’t mean you have accomplished nothing; it just means you’ve learned something.

Failure doesn’t mean you’ve been disgraced; it just means you dared to try.

Failure doesn’t mean you don’t have what it takes; it just means you must do things differently next time.

Failure doesn’t mean you’re inferior; it just means you’re not perfect.

Failure doesn’t mean you’ve wasted your time; it just means you have a reason to start over.

Failure doesn’t mean you should give up; it just means you must try harder.

Failure doesn’t mean you’ll never make it; it just means you need more patience.

Failure doesn’t mean you’re wrong; it just means you must find a better way.

With warmth and affection,

Rabbi Sally Olins, DD
