Get Rid of Failure

Failure, failure! Everyday many people encounter and experience failure in their life. As long as man breathes, there are always failures that always accompany him whether he likes it or not. But the question is, how can we get rid of failure? What are the ways to make failure as stepping – stone to succeed? And how can you make yourself not to be forever a failure and loser?

I’ve learned from my past experienced that life without failure is dull and meaningless! It cannot help you to improve yourself and discover your great potential.

There is an old sayings, the diamond cannot be polish without friction nor man be perfected without trials.

In order to see the sun, we must also to see the rain.

In the accounts of the history of the lives of greatest men, I discovered that before they finally reach the heights of their achievement and success, they experience first a lot of failures before they can gradually get the crown of their hard work.

I can still recall the life story of the late great president of America, Abraham Lincoln.

In 1831, he failed in business. In 1832, he defeated in legislature. Again in 1833, he failed in business. In 1836, he suffered nervous breakdown. In 1838, he defeated running for speaker. In 1840, He defeated running for post elector. In 1843, he defeated running for congress. In 1846, he elected to congress. In 1848, he defeated running for congress. In 1855, he defeated running for senate. In 1856, he defeated running for vice-president. In 1858, he defeated running for senate. Gradually in 1860, he was elected as the 16th and one of the most greatest and outstanding president of the American history!

It’s really true dear readers, you become as what you think!

If you think you are beaten, you are.

If you think you dare not, you don’t.

If you’d like to win but think you can’t, it’s almost certain you won’t.

Life’s battles don’t always to the stronger or faster man,

But sooner or later, the man who wins is the man who thinks he can.

Dear readers, if you can keep on trying after three failures in a given undertaking, you may consider yourself a candidate for a leadership role in your present occupation. If you can keep on trying after a dozen failures, the seed of genius is sprouting within you!

Yoritomo Tashi argued that “when you fall and get up it does something to you. It is healthy and invigorating to fall many times through life, if you get up each time. It is the getting up that count.”

Dr. John Maxwell would like to remind you that “the only person who can stop you from becoming what God intends you to become is you!”

Finally always remember dear readers that the Future Belongs to Those Who Believe in the Beauty of Their Dreams!

Wish you many blessings to come and God Bless!
