It’s a known fact that Thomas Edison, the world famous American Inventor, failed 10,000 times. After 5,000 failed experiments, his laboratory attendant said to him; “Mr. Edison, we have failed 5,000 times, shouldn’t we stop?” Mr. Edison replied; “Son, we have not failed 5,000 times, we have only discovered 5,000 ways in which it cannot work. We are closer to the solution now than when we started.”
Success is the achievement of predetermined goals. But how do you respond when things do not go the way you planned? Do you feel discouraged, depressed and sad? To succeed, don’t quit. However, our knowledge of success cannot be complete without knowing how to handle failure.
Successful people don’t frown on failure but sees it as a stepping stone to achieving their set goals. Don’t be afraid to fail. Success will not come without you taking a risk.
