“Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time.”


Failure is the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective, and may be viewed as the opposite of success (Wikipedia).

In my entire career and life’s journey I experienced how it feels to fail – life became hard. Many times I gave up the ghost.

“I’ve been broke. I’ve been rejected. I’ve been betrayed. I’ve been laughed at. I’ve been ignored. I’ve been belittled, and I’ve been defeated.” All of these pierced my heart and bleeds of desperation. They made me cry.

My tears gave me strength and power. My prayer gave me hope and understanding.

Oh mother, I never gave up.

Every day I recalled the hardships and difficult times from my walk. I got hold on the rope of my dreams. My faith anchored me to survive, believing someday the sun will shine. Kept a loyal and shining heart to move me into the future of my wish.

I just continue working while experiencing and testing resolve to the marrow and keep going finding good opportunities, just as fish cannot live without water and trees cannot grow without soil. I believed that it is only by repeatedly starting over from scratch that I can be successful.

In my mind I knew that every setback experienced means another enhancenent of knowledge, and every adversity endured means another emergence of greater generosity from heaven.

After series of failures and setbacks, a new chapter of life unfolds, I catch a glimpse of the collapsing trees. Rays of sunlight shine upon the earth, mountains, and rivers on a beautiful morning, transforming into the spirit of hope in the world where I am living.

Failure trained me to be strong, faithful, keeps me grounded and humble. It is an essential part of self-development.

I learned many things from my failures to clutch me hopeful in bringing my feet stand on the ground.

Albert Einstein once said, “Failure is success in progress.” πŸ›οΈ

for though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again, but the wicked are brought down by calamity.
