Why you have never Failed

Failure, achievement

I wonder why I have never failed while Albert Einstein, Mark Zuckerberg, Thomas Edison, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and the likes failed severally according to their accounts. How perfect could I have been, what exactly I was doing right, why don’t they just come and learn from me. I have been to pools, rivers, seas, oceans, lands, mountains, hills and valleys and yet, there is no one thing I have tried twice. Everything has ever been done right. If you don’t call me perfection, you must be out of your mind. I took my time to analyze why I never failed after series of studies and observations----------

It is simply because I have never achieved anything

So how did I know this?

Well, I opined that the likes of Gates, Mark, Wozniack, Obama, Edison should come and learn from me, however with all my history of travels perfection, I am not more known than my local government chairman. What exactly can people attribute to me? Is there any patent, invention, discovery, innovation? Nothing at all

So why is failure similar to these world renowned great men?

According to Ken Robinson, “If you are not prepared to be wrong, you will never come up with anything original”.

That exactly was the blockbuster!!!!!!!!!!!

I have and had no invention, no originality and nothing can be attributed to me or called by my name. Gates and Microsoft, Mark and Facebook, Jobs and Apple, what about me?, definitely, Grose and Noise.

According to Joshua Becker, "Life is experienced as a constant, never-ending shift between successes and failures, sometimes, they occur within moments of one another. To be human is to fail. This is known to be true from personal experience”.


That is very true. I have actually not found out how something isn’t ever done but how it is done correctly. Every time I tried something and did it at a first try, I only used the method developed by someone else. Therefore, it can’t be attached to my name.

In order to succeed, you must first find out how something is not done before finding out how is done. Thomas Edison is a true picture of this expression. He said, ‘I didn’t fail, I just found out a thousand ways the light bulb wouldn’t work.
My dear, you only get it right once you tried it because someone else discovered a way you would have done it and it wouldn’t work.

So, what should be your attitude to failure?

According to Tim Harford in his book Success starts with Failure, he said, ‘Success comes through rapidly fixing our mistakes rather than getting things right the first time’.

Failure doesn’t show how incompetent you are. It’s not a crime to fail after all. It’s just an avenue to try again and with another method. Albert Einstein said, ‘You can’t keep doing it the same way and get a different result'.

The writer of this article wrote Ordinary level exams eight times before he got admitted into a University and yet finished with a Summa Cum Laude

This shows that the beginning isn’t as important as the end

Seth Godin says, ‘The only thing worse than starting something and failing….. is not starting at all.

This definitely makes you a coward because you can’t even conquer your community not to talk of the world. Please get up and try again. Your excuses shouldn’t be your motivation, but your failures.

Finally, get up your ass and try again. Remember, you are not your own failure. If you actually want to succeed in life, take the bitter truth, you must
