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.

Our destiny is determined by what we do with our dreams, whether we go after it to make it true or we don’t follow it blaming the outer circumstances. We Claim that our situations are different from others. We make a hell lot of excuses why we can’t make an effort to live our dreams. There may be many reasons for not living our dreams, and one of the chief reasons is feeling embarrassed for not achieving what we set out and declare to achieve. What people will say if I fail?

God has made every individual well-packed with unique ingredients that are needed to live a dream life and made an impact on this world.But, why it does not happen in real life, in the practical life, in the day to day life?

In the process of achievement, we tend to overlook some of the basic questions. When we make a list of goals-desires/dreams with deadlines-we must keep in mind the order. What do we want to be? What do we want to do? What do we want to have? In one of my classes a student expressed her desire, ‘I want to be a bestselling writer?’ Now, she wants to achieve a goal that tags her as a bestseller writer. The number one the thing she will have to do is to think and feel that she has all the ingredients in her that are required to be a best seller. The process of achievement starts with the thought process. All the changes happen inside first then only outside change will take place. Number two: learn about the bestseller writer, what is their daily routine, what they do daily? How do they develop the habit of writing? Stick to the routine until you achieve your goal. It sounds simple. Isn’t it? Of course, it is simple. You might ask this question, ‘if it is so simple why do most people fail to achi…
