00526 - Change Your Mindset

Updated: Nov 14, 2023

Look at life through a different lens. Consider the acronym FAIL, which stands for 'First Attempt In Learning'. As Proverbs 24:16 (NLT) says, "The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. But one disaster is enough to overthrow the wicked."

Then there's END, standing for 'Effort Never Dies'. This tells us that our hard work and perseverance are never wasted. They are the seeds we plant today that bloom into tomorrow's achievements.

And let's remember NO, which can mean 'Next Opportunity'. It redirects to a new path and keeps us poised for the new doors that will surely open. So, keep this trio of acronyms close to your heart: FAIL, END, NO. Together, they weave a mindset that looks at life not as a series of obstacles but as a grand adventure of learning, persevering, and seizing opportunities. God will always bless new, fresh thinking.


Keep a positive mindset in everything you do.


Thank You, Lord, that I have the opportunity for improvement each day. Amen.
