Sometime in the spring of 1991, I was in a meeting. Now mind you, I had been to many meetings before, but this particular meeting brought new meaning to me. You see, at that point I started to understand what people were reading, at the beginning of the meeting. How It Works, The Serenity Prayer, The Promises, etc. all started to make sense, in plain English terms. Before that I only heard ech...
Everybody wants to succeed in life, but nobody wants to fail, but why? Why are people afraid of failure? Nowadays, people think that they have to take a huge leap like a tiger to reach the highest position. According to them, it is very easy to have a successful life. They see other people’s success and feel jealous. They only see the front of a person’s life, but they don’t know how much struggle they have put in to succeed. How many times do you have to face failure in life? Did they stop their fight? Did they become victims of the inferiority complex?
Today, I am writing this article just for the purpose of creating awareness among people so that they will not be afraid of their failures. Failures are key points in your life. Without having failure, you cannot have a successful life. It is nature’s golden rule that you have to fight for the things you want in your life. Your success is a composition of your determination, difficulties and struggle. For this purpose, you need to remain positive and be patient in various steps of your life.
Your positive attitude and determination towards the destination are very essential because if you are facing any failure then you have to take it positively and increase your determination with this courage that you can do better in the next attempt. Do you have to think like that why am I failed? Have I missed any instructions? What are the reasons for my failure? When you analyze your failure in this pattern, you get better instructions for the next try. Staying consistent in your goal leads you to success. Just take the example of the eagle, his power of determination and consistency towards his prey is so high because he knows that he only gets one chance to catch his prey. It does not mean that it has caught its prey every time. Never. Sometimes he fails but he learns from his mistakes and tries again and again until he succeeds.
Life is not simply a name of full leisure and pleasure. Life is full of difficulties just to control your patience towards your goal. Ups and downs are part of a person’s life, but that doesn’t mean that person loses hope. You just need to face these difficulties with courage and you just have to keep faith in your Creator. All those people have faced difficulties that are successful in their life. But these difficulties could not distract them from their goals. Can you imagine the hardships of a poor man? He has to work on a very low salary package just to support his family. The poor man does not want comfort for his life, but his main duty is to provide comfort for his family. He has to put up with the harsh behavior of his employer because there is no other source of income. But, he does not lose hope and faces all these difficulties keeping his family in front of his eyes.
Remember one thing; your failures are steps on the ladder of success. Just take steps like a little baby who can’t run right away. First of all, he tries to crawl, and then he tries to stand up. While trying to stand up, he fails many times but doesn’t stop his attempts. If the little boy can’t give up, why do you give up? Struggle means that you are crazy about your dreams, goals and achievements. At any time, if you lose your fight, you will fall from the position you have reached. Here is a main point; there is no need to fight for the things that other people want, always fight for the things that you want because your area of interest matters a lot.
In the end, I just want to say that failures cannot stop you from achieving your goals. All failures are a lesson for you. If you don’t learn from your failures, it’s your own fault. I repeat, failures are only inspiration. Don’t pay attention to what others say. Just focus on your life and its goal.
