“Success is most often achieved by those who don’t know that failure is inevitable.”
Success is a word which comes along with Failure. If you’ve never tasted failure and if you never wanted to taste it. Sorry , but success is not a word for you then.
Failure is the avenue for success. The more you decline the more strength you’ll wind up for your dream.
If you think that I want to become perfect and perfection is the other word for success, then please wake up stop believing that “Oh! I am so imperfect, how could I achieve success in my life.”
I have examples for you, some people who will tell their stories about how they failed and how many times they failed but success, at last, was in their hand.
I would like to start from Thomas Edison, the man who changed the whose discoveries changed the earth.
It took years and years for him to discover the most important part of human life, The Light. But in that decade of years, he failed a thousand times.
When he was asked about his failures, he said that -
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
During his school time, his parents always get complained about his slow brain and was said by his teachers that he would never succeed in his life due to his slow brain.
If he had the slow brain and failed for 1000 times still you are now able to switch on the light of your room, then it’s good to fail sometimes to find your right way.
2. J. K Rowling
Do you remember J.K Rowling, No? Okay, do you remember Harry Potter? Obviously, who don’t know?
Yes, J.K Rowling is the creator of your favourite fantasy character Harry Potter, and the magical school in which every child wants to get admitted Hogwarts.
But, it would be sad to know that you never would meet Harry Potter because her novel was rejected several times. The only reason it was published was her CEO’s eight-year-old daughter requested him a lot to publish it.
“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.”
- J.K Rowling
3. Steven Paul Jobs
Who in this world have not heard about the brand Apple and the name Steve Jobs, a man who discover a brand which changed millions of life.

4. Walt Disney
This list will be incomplete without this person. Who don’t know him? The creator of biggest entertainment media who changed the life of children of the whole world.
I still remember the days when I used to dress up for school watching the Disney cartoons, but it’will be weird for you to know that the person who invented that was himself a school drop -out
He was rejected by army due to his underage and with a lot of efforts got his first job as a cartoonist at the local newspaper. After few years, he and his brother took over their company Laugh O gram which went a bankrupt and proved to be the first step towards the Disney world.
