Our success as writers depends largely on what we are thinking. Our thoughts control our actions, and our actions control our level of success. When you think you will fail, eventually you will. When you think you will succeed, eventually you will. The results lie in our way of thinking.
God has made us to succeed. Our success brings Him glory. This is not to say we won’t experience failure along the way. Failure is merely a steppingstone to success. Failure is not the end of the road; it is merely a bump in the road.
Failure has an important role to play on the journey to success. Failure teaches us that we need God to do anything. Failure teaches us that we need to grow. Failure teaches us compassion for others on their own journey.
Every successful person has encountered failure, sometimes a great deal of failure. But the one common denominator among successful people boils down to the way they think. Successful people are not daunted by failure. They confront it and overcome it. Why? Because they think they can.
Do you think you can overcome every failure in your writing career and in your life in general? If so, why? If not, why not? What does God’s Word say about ways to overcome failure?
