-- it does mean you haven't succeeded yet.

2. Failure doesn't mean you have accomplished nothing
-- it does mean you have learned something.

3. Failure doesn't mean you have been a fool
-- it does mean you had a lot of faith.

4. Failure doesn't mean you have been disgraced
-- it does mean you were willing to try.

5. Failure doesn't mean you don't have it
-- it does mean you have to do something in a different way.

6. Failure doesn't mean you are inferior
-- it does mean you are not perfect.

7. Failure doesn't mean you've wasted your life
-- it does mean you've a reason to start afresh.

8. Failure doesn't mean you should give up
-- it does mean you should try harder.

9. Failure doesn't mean you'll never make it
-- it does mean it will take a little longer.

10. Failure doesn't mean God has abandoned you
-- it does mean God has a better idea!
