It is essential to get rid of the thought that success is the ultimate. It is not a final destination to reach, it just an achievement to be counted on in your life’s journey. Success or failure is never an end to anything, it’s just a start; similarly comparison with others is not going to help us in anyway. The way life is interpreted is different from person to person that is why it is said- “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
Your Mindset makes the Decision
It is up to each of our mindset to decide what success is, for some it’s a destination, for some it’s a start, for some it’s just something to be added to their achievement’s list, while for some others is it an encouragement and stepping stone for climbing higher. It is essential to keep in mind there is no end to success, you can keep trying for bettering things what you did and what you are striving to achieve. Though failure is the flip side of success, it is the best way to learn from mistakes. Learning through mistakes is the key, it is important the one should be capable to learn from others mistakes too. Being able to look around and just taking the good things from others is nothing but a positive thing.
Success or Failure is not a Show-Stopper
Whether it’s success or failure that is waiting for you at the end of each task, it should not be a show stopper; you should keep putting effort to get things to the next level. Failure is never the worst thing; the worst thing is when you give up your desire and ambition due to failure. Nothing is impossible to overcome if you have the perseverance towards your goal. Irrespective of what the goal is, make sure you have positivity around you, the people you mingle with, the books you read, the things you do matters a lot. It is an added advantage if you can survive among people who think- – “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
Courage Helps in Finding Solution
Every failure has a reason; similarly every problem has a solution. It is left up to you to think through and beyond the problem to find a solution. Most of the times solution for a problem will be in the question itself. It is important to stay focused and not have lack of foresight, lack of execution, lack of preparation. Never see failure as an obstacle, it is just like a dirt in your eye, wash it away and keep moving forward.
It is essential to think failure as just an outcome or result of the experiment; it is not the end. Be capable to invest your time in understanding what went wrong instead of crying over the spilt milk. If for success persistence is crucial, to overcome failure, courage is a need. It is good to go through multiple experiments to get the final result, this helps in understanding what the effect will be if something goes wrong. To be an expert, failure is one of the best learning tools. The things you can learn through failure can never be thought by success.
Put all your efforts in doing what you love, so every time you feel like giving up, just think what made you to hold on all this while. It is essential to think at all times: “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
