Failure Is Simply a Detour on the Road to Success

Failure Is Simply a Detour on the Road to Success

Are You Traveling

on a Detour?

Success is not instantaneous, as much as we might like it to be. We usually have to learn some lessons along the way, and even fail now and then as part of the learning process.  As the top quote says, our flaws give us something to work on and improve, and in turn, we grow.


In other words, we often encounter detours on the road to success.


The important thing is to learn what we need to, and keep moving forward.





Here’s your inspiration for today…


“I believe failing is part of every success. As John Maxwell says, ‘We can fail forward.’

History is filled with examples of people who are famous for doing great things–yet if we study their lives, we find they failed numerous times before they ever succeeded at anything.

Their real strength was not their talent as much as it was their tenacity.

A person who refuses to give up will always succeed, eventually.

Remember: Failure is simply a detour on the road to success.”

Joyce Meyer inThe Confident Woman Devotional


My Reflections


It’s comforting to know so many people failed before they ever succeeded–so failure isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Even if we fail the first (second, third…) time, at least it means we made the effort and learned what did NOT work. If we don’t step out to find out, and take some calculated risks, we might not fail… but we also won’t succeed!



So What Are YOUR Thoughts?


Do you agree we often have to fail before we succeed?


Have you ever taken a detour on the road to success?
