In the English language, Success and Failure are the reverse of each other. There opposite meanings and outcomes give a feeling that these two can never be the same. However, in real life, success and failure go hand in hand. There is no success without failure and no failure, which does not have, potential to show success.
As I mentioned earlier, Passion is a form of persistence, which is driven by interest than by outcome. The key ingredient in this journey of passion is the taste of success and failure. Keeping this in view, we must accept failures with open arms as they help make us wiser and help us move closer to success.
There are several examples in each of our lives, which we can take inspiration from.
“ Do not see failures ,but just another way of doing it“
I have few, which I get inspiration from.
J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter novels was waitressing and on public assistance when she was writing the first installment of what would become one of the best selling series in history. A dozen publishers rejected the book. The only reason it got published at all was because the CEO’s eight-year-old daughter begged her father to publish it.
“Failure meant a stripping away of the inessential.” – J.K. Rowling
It might come as a shock, but the man who became what many would call the best basketball player of all time didn’t make his high school basketball team.
“I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games.On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and I missed.
I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” -Michael Jordan
Thomas Edison was both hearing impaired and fidgety. He only lasted three months in school where his teachers said he was “too stupid to learn anything.” His mom eventually home schooled him. In talking about his invention of the
light bulb, he said:
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that do not work.” – Thomas Edison
True passion is what these three examples through up. They did not see failures, but another way of doing it. Failures do through up negativity, but those who overcome that quickly, see success ultimately.
