These are the instructions on how to let go... Perhaps it is letting go of a rebellious child, or a burden of sorrow; losing a loved one, or learning to live with a heartache which we just cannot let go of. Read this over... STUDY IT... PRAY OVER IT... and you will find that letting go of your load will release a peace within you which will allow your spirit to soar... to be free... to completely give it to God... and let a work be done within you where the need is anyway.

Treasure your failures, because they will lead you to success. Each negative result gets you closer and closer to the ultimate goal.

If you're not failing, you´re not getting anything done. Failure is nothing to be ashamed of, but rather something to learn from. Often you can learn more from undesired results, than you can from something which works the way you planned.

To be a winner, you´ve got to keep stepping up to bat. Even if you struck out the last time, and the time before that. To each new attempt you bring more experience, more knowledge, more determination.

With each failure you greatly increase your chances of winning. It would be a shame to stop just short of your goal. Every day you're getting better and better. With each attempt you learn, and become more effective. The prize is closer than you think. You're becoming a winner. Keep it up for as long as it takes.
