Our lives involve a lot of different experiences and situations. We will taste the sweetness and the bitterness of these events and situations, and we need to be ready for that. Same thing happens when we have our dreams and we work hard to achieve them, don’t expect that everything will work as you want and hope. There will be obstacles, there will be limitations, and if your will is strong enough you will pass these struggles.
Getting what you want is not easy and it will never be. You need to work day and night to be successful. You will find difficulty, you will find obstacles, and you will fail once and twice and ten times. You will find yourself at points where you cannot move on anymore. At this point, you will have the most important decision, either you keep trying and never give up, or you just lose the hope, stop what you started, and let the dreams be just dreams. At these points is the difference between the successful person and anyone else. A successful person, who believes he will achieve what he is working on, will never give up easily. He or she will keep trying and failing and trying again.
No matter what obstacles you will face, no matter how many times you will fail, just keep trying. Failing is nothing but a reminder that maybe you are doing it wrong and you need to try another way. Failing does not mean that you have to stop trying and to give up your dreams. There are many and many stories of successful people who achieved their success after many failures and tries. They never gave up, and that’s what we need to do. One famous story about success is the story of the electricity inventor Thomas Edison. Thomas Edison failed many times before he invented the light bulb. When a reporter asked him how it feels to fail 1000 times, Edison said “I didn’t fail 1000 times, the light bulb was an invention with 1000 steps.” This is so true! We will never learn if we don’t make mistakes.
One great scene that I like from the movie The Pursuit of Happyness is when the actor Will Smith said to his son: “Don’t ever let someone tell you that you cannot do something. If you have a dream, you have to protect it. If people cannot do something themselves, they want to tell you that you cannot do it. If you want something, go get it”
Finally, you have got to believe me; great things happen after you decide not to stop working on your dreams. Never give up easily even if you failed many times, there should be a way to do it. Believe in yourself and believe that if someone did anything, you can do it too; and if no one did it before, you will be the first.
Keep trying and keep fighting failure itself. Let’s try and don’t let failure beat us. Let’s keep trying all the ways until we find it, until failure itself gets smashed.
