Even the gravest of mistakes can be a blessing if you use it as a key to unlock inner storehouses of fortitude and resolve.
Failure is God’s own tool for carving some of the finest outlines in the character of his children.
Behind every successful person is a trail of spectacular blunders that would have laid low less adventurous souls.
We are all failures—at least, all the best of us are.
J. M. Barrie
Avoid taking risks to avoid making mistakes, and you will never achieve the greatness that beckons to you from the other side of failure.
But as in most things, it may take a bundle of mistakes to arrive at something sublime, just as it takes thousands of flowers to produce a few drops of perfume.
You live risk-free when you follow your guidance, reframe your errors as lessons, and trust in Divine Wisdom to deliver the right outcome.
And the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.
