Day 26: How do you handle / deal with both success and failure

Honestly, I do not know how to handle success and failure. I can only imagine being successful but I am not there yet.

As for failures, I have my share. I often try to forget my failures thinking it will go away. In the end, I should be thinking about the lessons from each failure, not the failure itself. Failures are part of life. Without it, we will not grow.

As for successes, I can only wish I am there. I do not consider myself successful yet. Success for me comes in achieving, for now, my immediate long term goal, and I have not achieved it yet.

My goal is to have my own business, write professionally, travel and have my own home.

-       I tried setting up a business, done it, not as successful as I want it but loved it and want to do it again.
-       Write professionally, I am currently writing in my blogs and in a couple of online writing sites. Maybe I should take more time into writing if I really want to do it professionally… lol! J).
-       Travel. Not traveled far yet. But I did. And I can say it is awesome.
-       Have my own home. This I think is the most difficult. I am currently deciding whether to buy a home or migrate. Right now, the option weighs more on the migration.

I may not know how to handle success and failures but in everything, I acknowledge the Lord. He gave the success to me and so are the failures. He can help me achieve my goals and lead me to where He wants me to go.

For He said:

“For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." - Jeremiah 29:11
