Failing is always an option…

but quitting never is! 

The other day our five year old Reagan, was struggling with learning to count by 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s (for a kindergartner it seems like calculus).  She said she was going to “never count again” because she kept getting them wrong.  She was “quitting”.  

It’s funny how our kids “teach us” what we have already learned… I told her she could make many, many, mistakes…and still learn how to count by 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s…but if she quit she would never learn.

Edison “failed” thousands of times before he found the right combination for the light bulb…but we certainly don’t consider him a failure”…because he never quit..he never gave up! ( I’m glad he didn’t because I hate the crappy new compact fluorescents that make everything look “greenish”.)

Don’t let your fear of “failing” cause you to quit.  Failing at things is normal…everyone does it.  I’ve personally failed in some way at everything I’ve ever tried…but it ain’t over…and I’m not going to give up! Don’t “buy the lie” that you’ve failed “too many times”.

 Failing is always an option…But quitting never is.
