An aide memoire to give yourself a second chance!

Do you know how many times Thomas Alva Edison was not able to design a perfect electric bulb, it almost took him thousands of attempts but rather than getting disheartened from not being able to make it he said,” I have not failed rather I have found thousand ways that do not work”.

Imagine the audacity he showed after his first failure by not giving up on his task

As Gena Showalter conveyed,” Giving up is the only sure way to fail ”. Real failure comes when you stop, when you give up when you start believing that you are worthless.

Robert F. Kennedy once said, “Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly” and that seems a very relevant recitation of him. Life is not about winning all the time instead, sometimes it behaves rudely with us. Success everywhere is hotly debated and appreciated but people tend to avoid talking about failure. They might get uncomfortable with that! No one even bothers to ask about the reasons for failure instead everyone becomes judgmental and starts passing their judgement. With failure, trauma becomes sine qua non, But again we need to survive those tough times and pull ourselves out of that traumatic state of existence. If you don’t win at one thing, it doesn’t mean that you won’t win anything. Life isn’t a piece of cake, it’s okay to fail it’s okay to not achieve a goal, yes but if you end your battle at first defeat, it will never do. Do not allow failure to consume your heart as life has many more things to offer. All we need is to buckle down ourselves and start pushing harder. We all in our lives have faced failure at one or the other time. Every failure is sui generis and needs to be dealt with, accordingly and those who establish themselves again win the game of life. Yes, I agree failure comes with a price and many lessons. it teaches us our shortcomings, and faults and sometimes it asks us to
change our course of the path, to begin a journey on,” the road not taken” yet. I understand failure makes us doubt our capability and potential of ours, it seems all black after the downfall, however, in such a situation, we should try to find the grey. Remember, collapse comes with hope, just a deep research on “how to restart” is required. Every person on the face of this planet Earth deserves a second chance. In contemporary times, when there is cutthroat competition in every possible field of success, this is your aide memoire to not end your war without a second try or else you might end up regretting, and believe me defeat is better than regret. At least, you will have a sense of contentment that you give yourself a second chance, you deserve it, and you have worked hard in the past just a little more patience and determination are needed, and remember we all are in the same boat just with different timings!
