Two Videos About Failures

Hello my dear friends,

I just watched two very very interesting short videos on a few very successful people and the challenges they had at some point of their lives before they became successful in what they are doing. Even though I have watched these videos in the past, watching it again reminds me that no matter how tough the going is, we should never give up chasing our dreams if we want to be successful.

Here's are the videos:





I know many people who will shrivel at the sound of the word FAILURE. To them, FAILING is bad thing and should be avoided as much as possible. However, could you imagine what would it be like if no one dared to fail? There would be no airplanes (it took two years of experimentation before the first airplane could fly and that too only for twelve seconds), there would be no electricity (according to Thomas Edison, "I tested no lesser than 6,000 vegetable growths and ransacked the world for the most suitable filament material"), and many other things that you are enjoying in your day to day life.

For those who know how to cycle, you'd probably have fallen while you were learning how to cycle, choked while you learned how to swim, fell as you were learning how to walk etc. Imagine how different your life would be if you were afraid to fail during those times. Well great, we now know that success will only come IF we were not afraid to fail in the first place AND we keep rising up EACH and EVERY TIME we fail.

Here, I leave you with some thoughts for the day. Are you happy with what you are doing, what you have and where you are heading in life at the moment? If you are, then great for you and I wish you continued success and happiness. But, if you are not, what's stopping you? The fear of failure? Whether it is the scars of past failure(s) OR the fear of the risk of failure, AS LONG AS you let either hold you slave, you will forever remain distanced from the door of success.

For failure is really nothing but the stepping stone to success.

Here's to our success (and failures),
Leo
