Questions to Ponder:
Do you remember in school when you were supposed to write a "rough draft" first, and then turn in a more refined version as the final paper? Did you skip the refinement part? Did you notice your results reflected your effort? This is similar to life and work today. Sometimes we have to be willing to consider that our efforts up until now have served as a "rough draft" and we actually need to take the time to refine our efforts to get the results we want. Do this enthusiastically and you'll never focus on the failure again. It becomes a lesson and you move forward with renewed conviction that you're on the right path.
