Welcome to Day 1681 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.

This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom

The Experience of Failure – Daily Wisdom

Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before. Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. Proverbs 16:16  How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver!  We are on Day 1681 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:

Today’s quote is from Elbert Hubbard, and it is: A failure is a man who has blundered but is not capable of cashing in on the experience.

The Experience of Failure

Any person who attempts anything significant will fail in their pursuits somewhere along their journey. The more you attempt, the greater the possibility of failure will be. On a personal note, I have attempted many adventures in life. Some of the enterprises were successful, some of which were not.  I probably look successful in the eyes of most people, but my failure to success ratio is probably about the same as anyone. One thing I did differently than some was that I turned my experiences into future success. I attempted to learn from each painful lesson of failure, which there have been many, and use it the next time for my benefit. It is the same with you. You will fail at times, guaranteed, but you need to be willing to take the rich lessons of those failures and use them as a downpayment towards your next adventure. God will give you wisdom, if you are willing to use it. You must work hard and keep on keeping on, especially when you feel like giving up. There are no rewards so rich as the lessons learned and the experience gained from total failure.  You will never completely fail unless you give up and not try again.

1 Chronicles 22:13

For you will be successful if you carefully obey the decrees and regulations that the Lord gave to Israel through Moses. Be strong and courageous; do not be afraid or lose heart!
