Failure is the reminder of success

Working day shifts at a regular job can seem like a mundane task. Hours of studying a subject doesn't really guarantee good results on exams. Repetitive routines can get to working professionals and aspiring professionals rather quickly. Learning a new skill or spending time with family is undoubtedly affected by long work hours. It might seem like you are preoccupied all the time. It may be so, that the important goals in life are far away from expectations.


Even after all efforts, you may not witness the desired results. It is no cause to give up because something didn't pan out exactly as expected. Everything in life may not be as anticipated. There are only two choices, give up or keep trying.


"If you learn from defeat, you haven't really lost."

- Zig Ziglar


The problem with giving up is the immediate denial of furthering your goals. To give up means that you have eliminated all possibilities of achieving any result. To try again on the other hand, shows that you are willing to take what comes on your way to achieve a goal. Each time there remains a nagging sensation that you aren't doing enough, is when you actually step it up a notch.


Whether at school or at work, a common pattern exists to achieving your goals. The road may be filled with obstacles and many hurdles. There may be many ladders to climb before you get a crack at the top. You'll just have to jump right over these hurdles. The willingness to try harder is at the core of achieving success. A person on the road to success is bound to stumble and fall. The silver lining is in how many times you pick yourself up to stay on the right track.
