Our blessed right to fail, a major difference between communism and capitalism. If no failure then what value is success
This is deep in a canyon. The prospectors prospered until the market made their endeavor worthless.
Our self evident given right to fail is really important.
Americans need to get over their fear of failure. Times have been tough, but sitting back and hording is a loser of an idea. I guess I read a short piece by some fine lady on the Hubpages, and I liked it. For me I write each morning to a small group of folks in a private blog setting. I work hard to shorten messages. My people are young and vibrant and energetic and going after it. I do not want to intrude or become a bother so mostly I write quick and easy homilies. The ungrateful dawgs do not thank or even acknowledge me. But I know they read it and perhaps it is all they get of a spiritual life. That’s cool. If I wrote for thanks and praise, I would not like myself much. Here is a short homely. Sometimes I fail to get the message across or just have a bad day -- but I try.
The blessed right to fail, is given to us. I am not saying we should set out to fail. What I am saying is that we should not let fear of failure hold us back. "For though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again…" (Proverbs 24:16, NIV).

It is Monday morning and we all have some challenges ahead of us. Let us go boldly forth and take some risks and get noticed and let others see our light shine. And if we shall fail, let us rise again so that others can see that failure does not defeat us.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
Our race is not done until He says it is.
