What is the secret of your success?

Updated on May 27, 2008

how do you make right decisions?


Secret of success

Sir, " What is the secret of your success?" a reporter asked a bank President.

"Two words."

"And, Sir, what are they?"

"Right decisions."

"And how do you make right decisions?"

"One word.'

"And, sir, What is that?"

"Experience. "

"And how do you get Experience?"

"Two words"

"And, Sir, what are they?"

"Wrong decisions ."



Life lived without experiencing failure is a year gone by without the winter season. Failure is a man's best friend and man's worst enemy. Success is only meaningful if it has been achieved after endeavouring failure. Failure is not a loss but a door opened for man to gain knowledge and experience. No great man in history ever succeeded without failing!

We consider the failure to be an end however it is a start. It is a new start to achieve the topmost pinnacle of success. Failure comes our way to teach us how to get up and join the race of life again. Without failure life would be boring and predictable. Failure makes life unpredictable and adventurous. Failing is not the loss of hope but the generation of new hope which is stronger than it predecessor. If the world failure is to be eradicated from the face of the earth it would lead to the eradication of success because success is only possible in the when failure is defeated. Failure is our loyal companion from our birth to our gravestone. Death is also the failure of our will to live on. When a child is learning how to walk he fails innumerable times and falls on his knees but the child never loses hope and tries till success comes his way. So as children when we do not accept failure why accept is when we grow. A child is not as powerful in the physical sense as an adult but yet it has a strong will to defeat failure so where does this will get lost when we grow up to be physically strong adults? Defeat becomes real when we accept it!

When a child does not lose to failure why is failing such a tragic incident in adult life? Failure should be accepted and we should work to turn it into the fruit of success. Failure is the blue print of success. Work hard and change it to reality. Success is within the grasp of every human being who walks this earth.

Failure - A Stepping Stone Towards Success

Many people are afraid to undertake the trial because they're too afraid of experiencing failure. They make the mistake of believing that all failure is wrong and harmful. But in real sense it is both helpful and necessary. Failure provides the feedback that points the way to success.

The fear of failure is perhaps the strongest force holding people below their potential. In a world full of uncertainty, and countless misfortunes that could happen to anyone, it's easy to see why people are inclined to play it safe.

The thing is that without taking risks, you can't exploit any opportunities. You can live a quiet and reasonably happy life, but you are unlikely to create something new, and you are unlikely to make your mark on the world.

If you manage risk intelligently, you can capture the benefits of high risk opportunities while leaving yourself a safe
