Summer Success Series: Dave Severn on “Failure”

Talk about standing on the shoulders of giants!   I was listening to Dave Severn on my iPod during my walk this morning.   And outta nowhere he lights into the meaning of “failure”.

Since we all have to deal with failure at some level on our way to achieving our dreams, I’ve gotta share this with you.  Let’s slay this demon called failure, so we can move on to our highest levels of success!

Failure doesn’t mean your a failure,it JUST means that you haven’t succeeded yet

Failure doesn’t mean you’ve accomplished nothing, it DOES mean that you’ve learned something

Failure doesn’t mean you’ve been a fool, it DOES mean that you have a lot of faith

Failure doesn’t mean you’ve been disgraced, it DOES mean that you’re wiling to try

Failure doesn’t mean you don’t have it,  it JUST means that you have to do something in a different way

Failure doesn’t mean you’re inferior, it JUST means that you’re not perfect

Failure doesn’t mean you’ve wasted your life, it JUST means that you have a reason to start afresh

Failure doesn’t mean you should give up, it JUST means that you should try harder

Failure doesn’t mean you’ll never make it, it JUST means that it’ll take a little longer

Failure doesn’t mean God has abandoned you, it DOES mean that God has a better plan for your life.

Thanks, Dave!   Wise words.

Keep pushing toward the dream, friends!



Note:   I personally believe that it’s a leader’s responsibility to provide an environment where people can succeed.  My partners and I have made that commitment and have been providing that environment for years.   The success stories are great.   And we’re helping many right now to realize their highest levels of achievement ever.

    Wow,that passage was incredible. I say ” Amen”
    to that. If you put your mind to something, failure is not an option.

    Thank you Terrence for sharing this awesome truth. One can only fail if they accept defeat and stop trying. I choose to accept a disappointment as temporary set back, not a defeat.

  3. I certainly needed to hear this. Thanks for the Motivation!

    We are all tested at different seasons in our lives. And unfortunately we don’t succeed at everything we try, but we almost always enjoy and learn from the process. To have a Testimony to share with others, you have to a Test along the way. Tgray, the leadership and direction that you and the leaders on this team have provided, have given us a roadmap to succeed.
