Success Story is also story of many failures

We meet any successful person and listen his story or read stories or history of great persons. We will come to know that every success story is also a story of many failures. What we see is Success and success is visible & noticed but People fail to see the numerous failures that the successful person encounters during his journey of success. One of the classic examples are Colonel Sanders story. Colonel Sanders was an American businessman. He was the founder of world famous KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken). He started his restaurant business at the age of 65 years. His success story is also failure story of 1009 times. His recipe was rejected 1009 times before it was accepted. Today all of us know about KFC. But think for a while what would have happened, if Colonel Sanders would have quit after 1008 times. There would not have been any KFC. 
The great actor Amitabh Bachchan was rejected by radio channel stating that his voice was not found suitable for radio. Today, he is considered as one of the best orator with exceptional voice. Abraham Lincoln, the 16th US President failed many times in his life before he went on to became President of United states of America.
Similar story you can find in your surroundings also.
If you want to write your own success story you will have to write story of failure. While you have been busy making failure story, Simultaneously your success story would be in making. I am not saying you make deliberate mistakes. I am saying that if you want to travel the road less traveled, if want to succeed in your endeavor, if you want to make a niche for yourself, you may make mistakes, you are bound to. But you should not be afraid of making mistakes. Chances of success many a times depends on the rate at which one fails and at the same time learning from mistakes. If you are not learning from your mistakes, then it will lead us to shattered dreams and broken hearts.     
We must keep in mind that with every failure We learn lessons and we must improve our skill set and remove road blocks to achieve our goals. Failure are greater teacher than success. Learning is more in adverse situation than in comfort zone. So, do not be afraid to fail rather dare to fail. One word of caution here, We do not have luxury of time that we can not make every mistake ourselves and then learn.   We must also learn from other 's mistakes also.

Please do write me your story. We are here to listen your failure story as your failure will ultimately lead you to your success story.

Have Single-Minded devotion To Your Goal

To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goals.                                                                                                A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
Once you are clear about your dream, you can make it your goal.
How can you make your dream your goal?
When it comes to goal setting, it should be divided into short term goals and long term goals. There is no such categorization which goals can be short term goals and which can be long term goals. You can keep those goals under short term which can be achieved in one year. Long term goals are your dreams. The goals that you want to achieve 2 years down the line or 5 years, 10 years or 20 years down the line. Goals like owning a beautiful house with beautiful garden having swimming pool, at calm or serene place, plenty of space to play with children and spouse, owning fleet of luxurious cars, owning stud farms, exotic vacation, optimum health, financial freedom, time to pursue recreation activiti…

Be aware of your dreams and Goals

Hi, my name is Kumar. I am working on a mission to help people realize their true potential and live their dream life. Yesterday, I was with a group of 5 young executives, who was working for the last 5 years in one of the reputed banks of this country. I asked them, “Do you know what the difference between dreams and goals is?” Surprisingly, they answered in negative. They are among the top 10 per cent of the population when it comes to earning. I know they are hardworking and bright and in a couple of years, they will be handling important assignments like in-charge of the branch. So, I was expecting them to know regarding dreams and goals. But when they could not answer, I remember what Brain Tracy once said, “Most people fail to set goals, because they do not know.” Today we are living beyond the information age where we are bombarded with information. So, it is easier to access this kind of information. Probably, the flip side of it is it has made these things complicated. However…

Take action for your dream

There are several traits which take to be successful in life. You need to have dreams and goals. You need to have a plan to achieve those goals. There are people who have a positive attitude, positive thinking, a burning desire, clarity of goals, and the entire essential ingredients required to be successful in life. However, they are not where they want to be and doing what they should be doing.  Then what is that mission link? The missing link is the effort. The effort made on a consistent basis.
         Jim Rohn, a famous motivation speaker and author, says “Affirmation without discipline is an illusion.”
       If you have everything but you do not have self-discipline, your dreams and goals will go away from you. This lack of action will not produce the desired result, resulting in discouragement and depletion of self-confidence.
