Failure is an event.! Without disappointment, you can’t appreciate victory.


Failure doesn’t mean you not good enough or anything of that nature.

At some point in life everyone fails.  Failure is the part of success that makes you appreciate the importance of that victory!

When i was a kid in school a teacher told me: failure is just something every successful person has gone through, is the road to success.
I really didn’t understand the statement back then but later on slowly i get to understand the word “Failure” after being a victim. Yes it did happen, i failed at something sometimes but got to learn that you don’t die from failures.
Instead it makes you to humble yourself and learn how to pick up from mistakes, in-order to move on.

All the great men and women in history had one thing in common: Failure.
They often failed and failed to the essence of even quoting about failure.

Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success.
— Denis Waitley

Failure is success if we learn from it.
— Malcolm S. Forbes

But there is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it’s better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without ever knowing what you’re fighting for.
— Paulo Coelho

Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness.
— Oprah Winfrey 

If you haven’t failed yet, chances are you aren’t trying very hard. Failure doesn’t mean something bad but you trying a new thing you haven’t mastered. It only represent opportunity and growth not lost.

In an article i read earlier about failure as a tool for success, it says: Success takes willpower, intelligence, determination, and grit. But more than anything else, it requires failure. Success is about learning how to recognize why you failed, and how you’re going to compensate for it”.
Which also means whenever we make mistakes or fail at anything, you don’t just quit.

you have to figure out what brought about the failure…
what steps are needed for you to continue or try again…
How can you change your failure to learning/success… what can you do everyday to make your next try greater.

And for you to be determined, you have to trust yourself and not that which people say about your failure. Your goal should be to impress yourself  not to impress others.
Take for example people that create event. Not all events are successful from start. It takes mistakes, failure and great experience to build a successful event.

Without going through all this, you won’t be able to truly appreciate that victory in a joyful manner !
Victory means much more to a person who has never won before than those who always win. To them they appreciate that accomplishment more than the thought of success.
