- Reject Rejection. Do not give up because others think you have failed. The Lord has not given up on you. “For He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." So we may boldly say: "The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?" (Hebrews 13:5-6).
- Don’t blame God and others for your failures. He is the source of your help, not the source of your problem. Remember how far you have come and give God glory for what you have. Remember Job’s attitude about failure. “And he said: "Naked I came from my mother's womb, And naked shall I return there. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; Blessed be the name of the LORD." In all this Job did not sin nor charge God with wrong.” (Job 1:21-22).
- See failure as only a temporary problem. “For a righteous person may fall seven times and rise again.” (Proverbs 24:16).
- Keep your expectations realistic and achievable. Ask for God’s will to be done in your life. “You ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that." (James 4:15).
- Instead of dwelling on your failure, focus on your strengths. God has made you with special abilities and made you for a special purpose. “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.” (Psalms 139:14).
- Don’t be afraid to start over. Fear will bring procrastination and eventually stop you from overcoming failure. If you have the Lord Jesus in your heart, He will help you start over. “But Jesus looked at them and said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible." (Mark 10:27).
- Don’t get used to failure and make the same mistakes over and over again. “If you always do what you’ve always done, then you will always get what you’ve always gotten”.

NEW BEGINNINGS BEGIN WITH ENDINGS - PART ONE
NEW BEGINNINGS BEGIN WITH ENDINGS - PART TWO
“New Beginnings Begin With Endings”
- “Letting go of the old ways and the old identity people had. This first phase of transition is an ending, and the time when you need to deal with your loses.”
- “Going through an in-between time when the old is gone but the new isn’t fully operational. We call this time the “neutral zone”: it is when the critical psychological realignments and new patterns take place.”
- “Coming out of the transition and making a new beginning. This is when you develop the new identity, experience the new energy, and discover the new sense of purpose that make the change begin to work.”
