If you fear failure then never desire of success by Shivi Vats
Major thing where we lack is that we want our life’s to be smooth going i.e. it should only have happiness and success but no difficulties and failures which is a wrong aspect as there is no value of happiness without sorrows.
” Ups and downs in life are very important to keep us going, because a straight line even in an E.C.G. means we are not alive “well said by Ratan Tata.
So, we need to understand that failures are equally important and a part of life as success and happiness are.
If you have been rejected or disappointed time and time again, it is perfectly fine as this shows you are on the right path towards success.
Well Colonel Harland Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), was also rejected a lot of time and also had to face failures a number of time. But he never took his failures as the stopping stone in his life rather he made those failures as the life changing moments. Colonel Harland is a good example for showing us that “Confidence and hard work is the best medicine to kill the disease called failure. It will make us successful person as well. “
I would like to mention some of incidents from colonel’s life stating every failure is just a lesson to learn.
When Colonel was six, his father passed away leaving Sanders to cook and care for his siblings from there his love for cooking developed. In seventh grade, he dropped out of school and left home to go work as a farmhand. At 16, he faked his age to enlist to U.S.A army. After being honourably discharged a year later, he got hired by the railway as a labourer. He got fired for fighting with a co-worker. With many such failures he continued to work hard and try as much as he could in various fields. It wasn’t until age 40 that he began selling chicken dishes in a service station. As he began to advertise his food, an argument with a competitor resulted in a deadly shootout. Four year later, he bought a motel which burned to the ground along with his restaurant. Yet this determined man rebuilt and ran a new motel until World War II forced him to close it down. His recipe was rejected 1,009 times before anyone accepted it. Sander’s “secret recipe” was coined “Kentucky Fried Chicken” and quickly became a hit.
And he pursued his dream of spreading KFC franchise and hiring KFC workers all across the country. After years of failures and misfortunes, Sanders finally hit it big. KFC expanded internationally and he sold the company for two million dollar (US$23 billion (2013)).
We need to understand that every person has his own failures and fights to fight, but his is in common that everyone has some or the other failures in this life, which is also clear from Colonel’s life story.
“If you fail, never give up because F.A.I.L. means “First Attempt in Learning.” End is not the end; in fact E.N.D. means “Efforts Never Dies.” If you get N.O. means “Next Opportunity.”
So, start seeing good in everything as every bad or negative thing has something good or positive. Summing up with a nice quote by A.P.J. Abdul Kalam “Failure will never overtake you if your definition to succeed is strong enough. “
