Success is Failure Turned Inside Out

Have you ever wondered how some people can keep on going with a project or an idea after experiencing setback after setback after setback? How can people continue to move on with an idea, or a business, or an endeavor after an apparent heartache forces them to stop (at least temporarily)?

If you’ve ever met anyone who says they’ve not had a tough time in their life or that they never had a rough day, then you’ve met a person who has either not lived or is not telling the truth. Plain and simple.For me, what has helped keep me going has been to focus on the goal, on the dream. Earl Nightingale, in his recording “The Strangest Secret said “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.”

Even though I choose to make every day a positive and constructive one, there are always those moments in a person’s life when you feel that you just don’t want to move on with a project, or with a relationship or with an idea that you’ve been working on for a long time. It’s those very moments where I find myself in need of a personal pick me up. What’s great about the internet is that there is such a large number of inspirational video and audio links that you can check out a few a day and never be able to get threw them all.

Below is one of my favorites.

  2. Nice post. One certain thing about life is that for every rise there would be a fall at some time, where the problem lies is that we try to deny or not accept that fact which leads to not being able to cope with the downside of life. I share your views. Thumbs up.
