I’m learning to look forward to the next epic failure.
As Jamie Hollister likes to say when mentoring someone, “look, I’m gonna let you down. Eventually. It’s bound to happen. I’m human.”
The fact is, I’m going to make another mistake. I’m going to fail. Again. And again. And again.
Instead of being afraid, I’m learning to embrace the next failure. You know why? Because I can learn from it. I grow from it. I can become better. I can endure more. The next epic failure will be an experience, and I welcome it.
Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.
