"Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing." 
Denis Waitley
On the journey of life, everyone have to struggle, face ups and downs. Obstacles and hardships are bound to be there in one's lives. But what is important is how we tackle them. It is the perception of an individual towards the same that defines the course of his life. It has been aptly remarked that "To be a champion, fight one more round". It is one's tireless pursuit that will lead him to success. Success and failure are the two facets of a coin. There are people who may give up or there are others who are ready to take the failure as a challenge. A brave person takes the failures as a challenge, to step up the ladder of success. Destiny also favours the brave.

It is our attitude towards the life that helps us to shape our destiny. Failures can be disheartening when one is unable to cope with the situation. At such times, one must remember that it is the cowards who run away from the situation.

It is seldom that a child can walk without tumbling or falling down. But these small failures do not deter his spirit. Slowly and gradually, he learns to stand on his feet and then walk It is because of the child's will power that he is able to stand upright. This gives us a lesson that we must try and try until we succeed.

Success is a culmination of hard work, dedication, and determination. It is not necessary that every effort bears fruit. But every step definitely gives us an experience and this experience is incomparable. Failures not only make us aware of our shortcomings but provide a learning lesson.


They hint towards an individual's weaknesses, lack of preparation or lack of efforts. A person who can learn from his failures and work upon them is bound to be successful in life. With each failure, an individual steps closer to the success.

The success, after a number of failures, is valued and cherished much more. If we look at the life history of the successful people, we find that every successful man has failed at some point of time in his life.

It is just that he was smart enough to extract learning from those failures. Every time they experienced a failure, they bounced back with a rejuvenated spirit. They did not let the rejection of a failure overcome their spirit to achieve their goals. This is what made them successful.

Nothing great has ever been achieved without consistent effort in the face of innumerable difficulties. Here are some examples. Bill Gates, a Harvard University dropout, founded Microsoft in 1975, which became the world's largest PC software company. His first business Traf-O-Data failed but he did not give up and now became the wealthiest person in the world.

Another example was Walt Disney the creator of Micky Mouse and founder of Walt Disney company, winner of 22 Academy Award. Disney failed to join the United States Army and became an ambulance driver in Red Cross. In 1920s he set up the Disney Brothers Studio and made many famous animated films and got many academy awards. Later he founded Disneyland and Disney Park.

Similarly, JK Rowling, the author of Harry Potter, spent a life full of poverty and depression, before she wrote her first novel. Twelve publishing houses rejected to publish her first book, 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

There were six sequels and have become the best selling books in history. She has lived a 'rag to richsd' life story and became one of the wealthiest women in UK.

Eventually, it is our patience and determination that leads us to the road of success. One has to pay the price of his aspirations and dreams with his perseverance and dedication. As Rome wasn't built in a day, one cannot become successful overnight. The road to success is rough and patchy with hurdles and obstacles. But all failures become meaningless, once we accomplish our goals successfully.
