Losers See Failure—Winners See Beyond It!

Losers See Failure—Winners See Beyond It!

“Let your eyes look straight ahead.”      Pr 4:25 NKJV

Behind every success story you’ll find: (1) sacrifices made to fulfill a dream; (2) principles that govern lives in public and in private; (3) the ability to turn a single victory into a system of success; (4) a relentless quest for personal growth. One Bible teacher writes, “As a boy I loved to watch the older men play checkers. One day one of them invited me to play. At first it looked easy. I captured one, then another of his checkers. Then suddenly he took one checker and hopped across the board yelling, ‘King me!’ With that king he proceeded to wipe me off the board. That day I learned about long-range vision. Nobody minds losing a few checkers as long as they’re headed for king territory!”

What sustained Moses in the wilderness? His vision! “He persevered because he saw him who is invisible” (Heb 11:27 NIV). A God-given vision will keep you going when nothing else will. The Bible says: “Let your eyes look straight ahead…Ponder the path of your feet…Do not turn to the right or the left” (Pr 4:25-27 NKJV). What do you see in your future? You’ll never seize it until you see it! So, write down: (a) Your vision and the reason you want to fulfill it. (b) What you’re willing to go through to make it happen. (c) Every challenge you can think of that you’ll have to overcome in order to pursue it. Do that, and you’ll be prepared for much of what comes your way. The difference between winners and losers is in how they view failure. Losers see failure—winners see beyond it!
