You won’t get Success unless you are a Failure

“Your child has poor hearing capabilities and nor he is good at studies. We are sorry but we cannot keep your child in our school any further”, said the school teacher. “For me, my child is great. If you cannot teach him at school, I'll teach him myself at home”, asserted the child's mother.

After some years, the child did an invention of bulb and became world-famous. And till date, his work is appreciated all around the world. He is famously called as Sir Thomas Alva Edison.

Surprised..? Of course not, for most of u must have heard this story and also aware of the fact that Edison failed approximately 10,000 times before getting success. What is the reason..? You all know that, it is his determination, hard work, passion for his work and his mother's motivation. But the main question is that “How many of you actually follow this in your life to realize your dreams? “

Every one of you builds castles in the air, you have big dreams and you all know how to achieve them. In short, you want to be successful without being a failure.

Well, might be possible, if you have full confidence in yourself and are quite passionate about your work, you'll surely win the game of your life.

But some, among you, knows what to achieve, but you have innumerable desires and wish to get them all at once .You usually get confused with yourself, and do not understand which one to do first and finally becomes a failure. Being failure is not at all a bad thing, as FAILURE itself means “FAIr Lesson for U to Reap Experience”.

Experience is the most important thing in your life. If your colleagues have not experienced it yet, they will face it in some other point of their life because it is necessary for everyone to go through the every aspect of life, if they wish to achieve success. As true success comes only after failure.

Most of you must have gone through this situation for sure. For instance, in your school time, you would have use to dislike the person who was the topper of your class but you would have never thought of the fact that they might not be excellent in everything and may be you are good in that field, so you could kick him/her out in that and be the topper. So do not be jealous and focus on yourself .There is a Spanish proverb which goes like this “El exito es aprender a ir de fracaso en fracaso sin desesperarse.” It means that “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm”.

According to Thomas Edison, “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.”

There are many reasons which are responsible for us being a continuous failure. Let us call them Reasons for Stepping Back, in short, R.S.B. Click here to check out the RSBs.

When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.

— Confucius, influential Chinese teacher, philosopher and political figure
  • I have tried including all the best possible examples along with RSBs.
  • I hope you will be able to relate with them just like I could.
  • It is possible that you might be aware of some of them as they are not at all unknown examples, in fact they are worldwide famous.
  • If you find a better and suitable addition than what is mentioned by me, then do share it with me and everyone else, in the comments.
  • Not forget to mention that I wrote this article including those events, factors and personalities who deeply influenced my life and work and help me to achieve success.
  • Sometimes, you need that one thing to make you realize that you are not alone in your struggle, there has been many people in the history who has suffered more than you are what you are going through right now.
  • I have also made a list of inspirational books, if you like reading books and quite passionate about it, do check this out.

Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.

— Bruce Lee, the late legendary martial artist

There will never be any elevator to become successful. You will always have to take the stairs.

— Zig Ziglar

      陳兄 (1) 集體回憶 呢個 term 已經畀人玩爛咗 而且講真 真係要 center on 呢個 term 嘅話 就真係乜都唔使搞 繼續跳舞 就得 - 求其搵個好似 跌桔 之類嘅大 forum 草草問下 對香港最大回憶不外係波馬股 咁樣推論 實際上係唔使講 所以小弟以為 集體回憶 其實係個 mieonmsr 唔講仲好 多講 反而仲失焦...(2) 張日兄講到嘅商品化係原因之一 但如果睇返參與保育嘅朋友 我會認為唔好睇少佢哋嘅所見所聞 一則參與者大有三十上下嘅專業人士 有啲可能親身試過 例如小弟今年 28 但對舊式啲公屋嘅睦鄰 小商販生活模式都仲有一定認識 因為自己係響 80 年代親身響呢種環境生活 細細個會落街買糧油雜貨 同街坊玩/吹水之類 所以唔好以為佢哋真係鑿空而出吹水唔抹咀 (3) 搞保育嘅人未必有親身經歷 電視 電影 書刊嘅作用亦唔好睇少 如果話睇 花樣年華 見到飛鷹餐廳 睇 無間道2 嘅打邊爐係 販賣 nostalgia 再早啲嘅電視劇好似 香港8X 甚至各種電影 書刊裡面嗰種生活風貌 唔通下下都係 販賣 nostalgia 幾分假 幾分真 都係各自用心領會 稍為畀啲心機睇呢啲嘢 就自然會睇到同今時今日有咩唔同 有啲人睇到啲嘢 走出嚟 冇咩稀奇 更何況好似之前咁講 以小弟自己為例 細個睇電視見到嗰種日入而息嘅生活 對比返當年親眼目睹身邊嘅人點樣作息 地鐵唔會七點半多人過五點 etc., 響電視見到嘅嘢又唔係假得晒0架噃 如果話啲 細路 二手睇返嚟嘅假嘢 咁老輩啲嘅又可以畀到啲咩 真嘢 人睇 又或者 老輩畀到嘅就只有 convenient to themselves 嘅 真嘢 或者大家都要留意 宜家走出嚟搞保育呢班人之中年紀細嗰啲 唔係求其睇完 花樣年華 就一句話 "cool" 咁簡單 - 雖然 我都知佢哋唔少人睇完之後真係會兩眼發光咁開口 蒙太奇 埋口 後現代 (4) 呢樣都係 mutual disdain 嘅問題 反過嚟講 老一輩一句 冇回憶噃 之後話拆就拆話乜就乜 (真係拆0架 冇人阻到佢哋) 表面上好似冇咩嘢 實際上又何來有尊重過人 語調平和一句 要發展 唔好阻住地球轉 小弟響大大小小嘅 blog 同論壇見過 n 咁多次 殺人 唔一定見血 不出惡聲 唔代表尊重 如果話[ 死老鬼 ] [ 其他世代人不給機會 ] 之類好難聽 好魯莽割裂 我只能夠講呢類言詞係對冷漠同藐視嘅 "payback" 更何況 不附和回憶是否等於不認同社會 是否有點言重 小弟見到嘅 好似係嗰班人畀人 label 做 不認同社會 多啲 (5) 現在看到的 是 [ 舊樓是保育 ] [ 凡舊是好野 ] 例如由自出生以來都未試過跑樓梯流大汗的少年 去談 [ 唐樓很有 feel ] 有什麼 feel 都是老問題 exposure 唔同 係唔係小弟睇錯 響 InMedia 之類地方見班保育友 講到天花龍鳳口水都乾 咩高深淺窄大小長短理論都嘔晒出嚟 唔係一般吹水 到頭來就係 凡舊是好野 打對家嘅 大模斯樣話 冷氣商場好高樓大廈勁 嘅 成街都係 大不了就有啲高人 (又係響 InMedia 見到嘅 哈) 大玩 子非魚 邏輯 一味搬返啲 你哋又何嘗尊重支持發展嘅人 你哋唔尊重反對者 你哋壟斷議題搞暴力 嘅 mudslinging 玩泥沙 更何況 其實呢度剩返嘅 舊嘢 仲有幾多 Argue for keep 多一嚿半嚿 又有幾 凡是 呢 凡舊是好野 到底係真象 定係對家為咗將呢班人塑造成 野蠻暴民 而作出嚟嘅大話 當猶太成為納粹 當文革變成民主 問題已經討論唔到 小弟以為 呢一點有必要釐清

      What you have said so very true. People say that they want to succeed but they are often unwilling to implement steps necessary to attain the level of success they wish for. Excellent hub, voted up.
