“Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker; Failure is a delay, not a defeat. It is a temporary detour; not a dead”- DENIS WAITLEY
What comes to your mind when you listen to the word ‘Failure’? What thought strikes your mind? How you treat failure? Let’s find answers to all these questions.
First of all, we will talk about, what failure is? Failure is just a state or condition, in which a person is not able to meet a desirable goal or objective. Most of us think that failure is not good, it’s a bad thing. But, actually, failure is the part of being successful. Getting a failure is pleasurable. How? Let’s see.
When a student fails in one subject it doesn’t mean that he will leave the entire study. Right? He will try to do better next time, but won’t leave to do hard work. So, why get upset for not being getting successful in your aims and goals? Everyone dreams of their life, they plan a lot of things but they fail several times before they make themself successful. But, did they stop struggling? No, Obviously no. They use to choose the other way to get the same platform, they try, try, and try, until they reach the destination.
Failing in exams is good, failing in business is actually very cool, failing in succeeding in your dreams is really good enough. This is what makes you better and strong. Whenever a person fails he/she gets upset or sad. But they don’t think if they fail then what is the reason behind getting a failure. They just get negative and start feeling down for what they can’t do. They do not see the positive side of failure.
Failure As An Opportunity
Some of you will ask how a person can take failure as an opportunity! Right? People search for many opportunities but they do not get such opportunities, they wish. If you got failed then take it as one more chance for giving your best this time. Because God gave you an opportunity to do things in a better way.
Failure is not the option for anyone. People don’t want to choose failure over success. But people have to face this somewhere in their life. Sometimes people fail unexpectedly, which makes them more week and it directly gives stress to their mind.
The bright side of failure is, it helps to pick out the mistakes we did earlier. It also creates a betterment in persons’ work and performance. A famous book writer Arianna Huffington was rejected by 36 publishers. She took every failure as an opportunity and keeps on struggling. In 2011, AOL grabs The Huffington Post for US$315 million. Her struggle for making herself to this level was hard.
“ Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill.
If Arianna did not take her failure as an opportunity then she could never be such a big writer. If she ever got afraid of being a failure then she can never be a successful woman today. She makes her failure, her strength, and her confidence and keeps on facing threats of her life confidently.
Human Beings should give Thank to god and to their failure, that they both help them strong, confident, tough, optimistic, and positive. Every small failure makes them perfect in their activities and always gives them the power to fight against every hostile condition. Failure also makes people kind towards others, when a failed person sees another person in any problem or they see them upset or sad because of their failure, they help them, they make them understand that failure is not bad for them, although, it is a great thing of their life. People should be thankful for themselves and others too. Thanking our mistakes and God is a great thing to give to God as a return gift. Showing gratitude is the kindest behavior a person should have.
Some of you get disappointed that why failures take place, but, there is a saying that ‘God gives the hardest task to his most strong soldier’, God gives his all stiff phases to his most permissive children. And he always does a fair balance between failure and success of people.
Always be thankful for what you have and for what God is choosing you. Try to sit for at least 10 minutes twice a day just for thanking God, thank him for your health, for your clothes, for your beautiful life, and for making your one more day healthy, wealthy, and fit.
Do you ever do this? Did you ever thank God for your failure? Share your opinions on this and tell us about your failure, which becomes your strongest part as a successful dream.
BE THANKFUL, BE HAPPY, AND STAY POSITIVE!!
