“My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure.” – Abraham Lincoln
The mention of the word failure, causes many hearts to shiver. Many dread failures so much; they don’t want to experience it at all, come to talk of anything beautiful about failure. Never mind, relax and read on.
Failure is beautiful only when it is learnt from. The rule of life is that you will always pass failure on the way to success. For achievers, failure is no stranger – a knock down only becomes a knock out if you are unable to get up within a reasonable time. It is choosing to stay on the floor that spells defeat.
“The person who wins may have been counted out several times, but did not hear the referee” – H. E. Jansen
Do you know that failures are critical to success? How you respond to failures and mistakes is one of the most important decisions you would make every day. How do you respond to failures? Failures does not mean that nothing has been accomplished. There is always the opportunity to learn something. It is needed sometimes to point out our weaknesses and bring us up on the path of progress!
Failure can be a catalyst to successful pursuits if you are determined to turn your failures to success. The fact that you fail now, does not mean you will not succeed. It is a great mistake to allow failure to push you out of the track of success.
“Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently” – Henry Ford
