Frame Every Failure With Success

Frame Every Failure With Success

I just returned from a women’s conference where I was challenged by these words, “Frame every failure with success.”  As I sat there and pondered over my life  I could certainly list many times in my life where I had failed.  What I suddenly realized was that for every failure I could remember, there was a corresponding link to success.  What makes success sweet is the bitterness of failure.

The question remained how do I frame failure with success?  I’ve been pondering this question for the past three days and this what I have surmised:

1) Keep Moving – Don’t allow your failure to paralyze you.
2) Stay Focused – Don’t allow your failure to derail you.
3) Glean the Lessons – Learn from your past mistakes and allow them to inform you.
4) Remain Optimistic – Don’t allow your past mistakes to define you.
5) Pass on the Wisdom – Share lessons, wisdom and insight to those coming behind you.

I’m sure there is more that I will discover as I move through life and consider this thought.  The frame that we choose to place around a painting will often determine the beauty of the painting.  Even a cheap picture can be ungraded to a beautiful piece of art when it’s placed in the right frame.
