If you have “Never Failed- You have Never Lived”

This post is an inspiration from the episodes of many great people who were great “Failures” once…

Success is the most interesting, and a beautiful word that everyone wants to have in their book called  LIFE again and again.

Failure is a word, which most of us want to rub away or at least dont want to write in our book called LIFE.

Success rather brings lots of enthusiasm, great amount of power, morale and royalty. We feel like we are on the top of a mountain playing with clouds. Failure brings us into despair, leads us to utter dejection, ruins us, shatters us and shows us what it means to live in a hell.

Many people feel that failures should not be a part of their life and that it should be failure free life. Some people fight with their failures, and after having fought enough they escape paving their way into some other alternative. Some people “QUIT” after fighting from failures, and end their life.Some people cry cry and cry in the ocean of sadness and get used to it.



This lady was dismissed from her drama school, because her teachers criticized her that she was very shy in acting, and cant get her foot ahead for good acting, and she was devoid of good acting skills.

He was criticized badly by his team members by not allowing him to pass on the ball during matches. He was injured several times and missed 64 straight matches. He couldn’t throw the ball into the basket in many final matches.

This boy was exclaimed as “STUPID TO LEARN ANYTHING”, and can never ever be successful in his life by his teacher. He later on emerged as the “Godfather of Light”, he gave the sunshine to everyone. He failed 999 times while in the process of inventing THE BULB. He succeeded the 1000th time. He is THOMAS ALVA EDISON( The man who invented bulb)

Failures are a chance to learn and transform ourselves. Failures squeeze us and expose us neat and clean like a washing machine.
