"You can't spell success without U."

One night a man had a dream. He dreamt he was walking along the beach with the LORD. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonged to him, and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it. "LORD, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me."

The LORD replied, "My precious, precious child. I love you and would never leave you. During the times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

You've failed many times
And although you may not remember
You fell down the first time you tried to walk
You almost drowned the first time you tried to swim
Didn't you? Did you hit the ball the first time you swung a bat?
Heavy hitters, the ones who hit the most home runs,
Also strike out a lot.
R. H. Macy failed seven times before his store in New York caught on.
English novelist, John Creasey got 753 rejection slips before he published 564 books.
Babe Ruth struck out 1,330 times but also hit 714 home runs.
Don't worry about failure.
Worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try.
