The road to success passes through the fields of failure

Everyone passes through a period in their lives when nothing works in their favour. Whether you are a programmer or a politician, sometimes you pass through a phase when it seems that everyone is conspiring against you and that is why you are not succeeding.

The truth is, the road to success passes through the fields of failure. If you haven’t ever failed in your life, you can never be successful. All great people have failed in their life, at one point or the other, but failure did not stop them from working hard.

Henry Ford, the founder of world famous Ford motors failed many times before becoming a success. As a child Albert Einstein was slow to talk, and according to some he did not start speaking until the age of 4. Einstein did not grow up to become a world famous orator, but the talk about modern physics without his contribution is difficult, if not impossible.

Miracles and success stories just don’t happen in the west. The story of Amitabh Bachchan is all inspiring, especially his second innings. The Indian cine legend faced financial crisis at the age of 57 in the year 2000. But he used his skill to his advantage and was the highest individual tax payer in the financial year 2012-2013. He is still one of the most sought after Bollywood actor.

Narendra Damodardas Modi is yet another example. He was blamed for the Godhra violence, one of the bloodiest controversies in the countryโ€™s history. But after investigations his name was cleared and he is the present Prime Minister of India.

Not to forget a failed lawyer, also called a half-naked fakir by some, used peaceful means to liberate India, and its neighbours, from the clutches of Britain, a warmongering nation.

The simple fact of life is the road to success passes through the fields of failure. These stinking, sludge filled fields of failure are not easy to cross, but if you have the patience and determination to cross these marshy lands, success beckons you.

  1. Terrific and well expressed. I have learned far more from my failures than ever from my successes. But of coarse having passion and hope for the future has certainly played a part in affording me the energy to get back up and apply what I have learned.

    • There is nothing wrong with making mistakes or failing, but the important thing is to learn from the past and not make the same mistakes again-and-again. I am happy that you liked my post and delighted that failures did not stop you from moving ahead in life.
