“No matter what you did in the past, your future is spotless!” John R. Rice
I’m sure you have heard of a man by the name of Babe Ruth. He was known for holding the record for most home runs hit, but what many don’t know is he also held the record for most strike-outs. In our lives, there will be times that we strike-out or fail and sometimes, we will fail in a BIG way. We cannot be afraid of attempting new things in this New Year because of failure. Babe Ruth had the most home runs because he was not afraid of striking out!
Abraham Lincoln 1831—failed in business, went bankrupt 1833—back on his feet, failed again 1835—fiancée died 1836—nervous breakdown 1838—ran for speaker of house, was defeated 1843—congress, was defeated 1848—congress, was defeated 1855—senate, was defeated 1856—vice president, was defeated 1858—senate, was defeated 1860—was elected president, one of the greatest who ever lived.
Success is getting up just one more time than you fall!
“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” --Joshua 1:8
