    Breaking down problems into smaller bits helps as well....makes them less daunting. And I think many of us are agreeing that failure is but a learning experience!

    A failure is someone who gives up on himself! Yes!

    Thanks for the insights...failure is actually a signal for a change in direction...not a signal that tells one that he is incompetent. We should all embrace it this way!

    Wow. This is excellent advice indeed....we should journal things and remember them, lest we go into an endless loop of failure by repeating our errors again and again. Thanks for this little nugget of wisdom!

    God sees us through all failures......we just have to remember that it is His footprints we see in the sand when only 1 pair appears.

    No, you didn't go in too much, Buzzbee! Yes, failure is something society imposes on us to keep us in line....it's a yardstick of measurement. Yet, it's just measurement...that in itself is subjective. No one should judge!

    I agree. We are so often caught up with failure and feel as though no one else struggles. The thing to remember is that all of us feel it and must move on in order to succeed.

    You are so right!! We must remember the times we do succeed, even of they are fewer than when we fail. With gratitude for that, we can turn the balance in our Gabor.
