“Sometimes we will fail more than we succeed but if we fail to succeed due to fear of failure than failure becomes our success.” – Anonymous
“Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.” – John Wooden
“If you do not believe you can do it then you have no chance at all.” – Arsene Wenger
“There’s a difference between being a failure and an achiever. Its not potential – its their a view of the world” – Arnav Sibal
Success and Failure. Both are your friends and your enemies. You learn from your failures and you gain confidence from your success.
You learn what not to do after going through a failure. You get a fair idea of how to go about doing the task the next time round. Sometimes we fail a lot of times. Probably more than we like it but know this: Failure is not the worst thing in the world, the very worst is not to try.
Success is also, in a way, an enemy. It tends to make you overconfident with small but effective blows and finally it fells you.
But that does not mean that you stay down after a loss. No. These moments are opportunities to get back on your feet and tackle the task with a new method. But then again, that does not mean that you should fail purposefully if things do not go according to plan. You should carry on with what you do with the strength that you possess until you are overcome in the end; which may not always happen. You might just go on to succeed.
However success is not always progress. Being a successful thief or a culprit may be progress in the criminal world but it is not progress in responsibility, values and personality. It may earn you respect in the criminal world but otherwise it will not earn you anything.
Success is something which everyone enjoys – and rightfully too and to succeed is important. Not for the fame – not for the money but for self respect because when you achieve something, you tell yourself – I can do it. And when you attempt something – anything – with this type of Can Do attitude it is possible to achieve anything you want to. If you go into something with negative thoughts – then you definitely will not succeed.
Success and Failure is also about the environment around you. When you always have positive vibes surrounding you, you are a winner. However with negative vibes, it is just the opposite. The reason why the surrounding environment has an effect on your success is because it describes your personality as well. If you’re organized and neat and clean then you are seen as a dedicated person otherwise your perceived to be careless and non-serious.
So fellow reader, know that success and failure are merely repetitive steps that can take you down or take you up. Know that there is no reason for complete downheartedness when you fail. When that happens – you lose. When you think you will lose – you will lose. Tackle every task with a winning attitude. With a unique mindset but not with overconfidence.
