The Truth About Failure

Failure doesn’t mean you are a failure, it does mean you haven’t succeeded yet.

Failure doesn’t mean you have accomplished nothing, it does mean you have learned something.

Failure doesn’t mean you have been a fool, it does mean you had a lot of faith in yourself.

Failure doesn’t mean you have been disgrace, it does mean you were willing to try.

Failure doesn’t mean you don’t have it, it does mean you have to do something in a different way.

Failure doesn’t mean you are inferior, it does mean you are not perfect.

Failure doesn’t mean you’ve wasted your life, it does mean you’ve a reason to start afresh.

Failure doesn’t mean you should give up, it does mean you should try harder.

Failure doesn’t mean you’ll never make it, it does mean it will take a little longer.

Enlighten Yourself!

So, your failure isn’t a failure but first step towards a new destiny.
Your failure let’s you drive faster only if you want to touch your illusionary success with your own real sight.
And this is what I have learned and now I’m able to write it in words.

"My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever." (Psalm 73:26)


  1. great way to explain failure!very nice

  3. Kaya napapadalas ako dito eh...dami matututunan :)

  4. the first line is excellent...and so are the next ones.

  5. before, i always thought that failure simply means that youve to give up on those things u want where in trying... and in the process of achieving what you want, u got zero... yun nga meaning, u failed.. but as i go through life.. as i learn from life itself, i realized that failure will always be a part of our lives.. its a learning process for us to become a better and stronger person.. and that once in a while sa buhay natin... we encouter these failures... then i said to myself... kung walang failures, kugn perfect score ka lagi... walang kwenta ang buhay mo...

  6. My favorite line...
    "Failure doesn’t mean you’ve wasted your life, it does mean you’ve a reason to start afresh."

    Nice Pope....

  7. love it Pope...

    "failure is when you lose because you didn't even try..."

  8. Well said Pope! Sometimes, in spite of our best intentions, failures come. No one plans to have failures. Many famous men experienced them too.

    As Thomas Edison said - Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

    Yes, success is just at the bend!

  9. Mukhang magpinsan ang post natin ah, nabsa ko kagabi ang post mo, kaya naisipan ko magpost starving the problems.

    "Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all."

  10. this is a point of view of an optimistic man.

    thank you so much Pope for always sharing some thoughts...

  11. sometimes akala natin ay failure is the end of the road. oposite pala there is a new opportunity to come. so try and try until we succed.

  12. "Failure doesn’t mean you should give up, it does mean you should try harder".
