Failure

This is a small lesson as to how we can look at a situation in our life... and go ahead to achieve our goals.
When you fail to reach a target...

It does not mean you are a failure,
It means you have not yet succeeded.

It does not mean you have accomplished nothing,
It means you have learned something.

It does not mean you will never be able to do it,
It means you have to do it in a different way.

It does not mean you are inferior,
It means you are not perfect.

It does not mean you have wasted your life,
It means you have to start afresh.

It does not mean you have to give up,
It means you have to try harder.

It does not mean you will never achieve it,
It means it will just take a little longer.

It does not mean God has abandoned you,
It just means that he has another idea for you.

Some Examples of this:

Albert Eintsein: was an ordinary clerk, who later became a world famous scientist.
Abraham Lincoln: was a peer farmer's son, who later became President of America.
Goldameir: was a school teacher, who later became Prime Minister of Israel.
Franklin Roosevelt: both legs paralyzed, who later became President of America.
Homer: was blind, who later became the greatest Greek writer.
Helen Keller: was blind, deaf and dumb, who later became a renowned writer.
Demosthenes: was a nervous stammerer, who later became a well-known Greek orator.
Beethoven: was deaf, who later became a renowned music composer.
Thomas Edison: was a graduate, who later became the greatest inventor.
MS Oberoi: was a clerk, who later became owner of one of the biggest hotel chain in the world.
KK Patel: was son of a farmer, who later became owner of largest selling washing powder (Nirma).
Topiwala: was a graduate who invested Rs.100, who now sells 50 million worth bindis per year.
Malathi Holla: was polio stricken with 25 surgeries done, who later won 150 gold medals in the discuss throw.
Shard Kumar Deekshit: 2 heart attacks, vocal cords removed, paralyzed, later he performed 45,000 surgeries free of cost.
CK Janaki: had polio, who later became a world famous swimmer.

All these great people managed to achieve great heights in their lives. Why can't we at least try? Never let small failures depress you. You have to try harder. Believe in yourself, God too believes in you. He surely sent you on this planet for a reason. Don't let him down. Hard work, willingness towards your goal & efforts never go waste. Cheers!!
