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.

The other day while interacting with one of the young officers of a corporate world an interesting incident happened. It is not uncommon that I meet many people in the job who show a keen interest in entrepreneurship. They want to become an entrepreneur but for the one or the other reason, they don’t venture into business. So, this young fellow told me that he had many good ideas for business. Then I could remember that I met some of the brightest men or women who were doing very well in their job and they wanted to start their own ventures. Most of them told me that they had many good ideas. Probably, this is the problem. People having many ideas landed in not working in any of the idea. As Napolean Hill writes in his book think and grow rich that ‘one sound idea is all one needs to achieve success.’ I always emphasis getting success is simple. This I could learn and realize after I underwent many failures in life, though these failures helped to become successful. What one needs is…
A person once asked me, ‘why it is so that even after having clarity in my dream and after much effort I am not realizing my dream?’ What I explained to him, am sharing with you. Having clarity in the dream is the beginning of the achievement process. But you need to give your 100% to make your dream true. I, myself, have made an effort for many years for my dreams but in vain. However, the result started pouring in once I gave my 100% to the cause. Remember, when it comes to realizing your dreams it requires wholehearted effort. There should not be any ambiguity in it. There should not be any doubt. Your belief level should be 100% that you will get the result you are striving for. And your belief level will be intact if it is backed by wholehearted effort. I always say that success is realizing your dreams is based on a simple act. What makes success difficult? You will agree with me or when you will work on your dream you will realize that simple is not easy. Doing the simple and imp…

Sometimes, these learning which is supposed to help us achieve greater heights in life, but on the other hand, these causes hindrance, probably, one of the reasons may be while learning we learn many things which are negative learning that causes doubts in mind.
