FIVE LESSONS OF FALLING TO RISE

If I should asked twenty persons, if they would loved to fail, I believe 99.9% of them if not all, will give a NO answer to my question. Even you that’s reading this article, will you like to fail? Everybody wants to succeed but none wants to fail on their way to success. Nobody wants to be a student to failure. Everyone is on the rising side, no one wishes to fall. Sometimes it is important to fail inorder to understand the principles of success. “Never walk away from failure. On the contrary, study it carefully and imaginatively for its hidden assets”—Micheal Korda.

It Reveals You To Yourself
If there’s one lesson I have learnt from failure, it remains the mien inwhich it reveals me to myself. In the midst of failing, if you leer mindfully, you will get to understand the message it’s passing across to you. Failure qualifies a man for success. You can never remain same after experiencing the teachings of failure. Either you’re being elevated or you are depressed as a result of it. It all depends on your reaction (Attitude) towards it. Have you ever asked yourself this, why do great men value failure so much? If you can answer this, then you will appreciate the lessons from the world of ‘falling to rise’. Failure marks the genesis of a new epoch in a man’s life. An epoch of self discovery and self worth.

Failure Is The Tuition For Success
Do you know success has a price? Just as we have tuition fees in Universities and High Schools paid by the students to management, same goes for success. You must be primed to pay the price of failing and never giving up if you must obtain the prize called success. No man has ever succeeded without failing. Michael Jordan once said, “I have failed over and over again-that is why I succeed”

If you are not failing, it is crystal clear that you are being passive. The man that has never failed, is the man who has never tried something new. Don’t be surprise when you fail so hard that i seems all hope is gone, know in your heart that there’s a great success ahead of you, of which you are paying the price for. Common men are debtors to failure. To be great, you must pay the price for greatness.

Failure Is Not The End
“Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end”—Denis Waitley. Failure is just the beginning of success for those that can uncover its true nature. Failure is neither a limitation nor a dead end to success but rather an opportunity for you to begin better.
“When I was young, I observed that nine out of the ten things I did were failures, so I did ten times more work”—Bernard Shaw

Failure is not the end
Don’t give up!
Don’t give up!
Don’t give up!


It Is A Stepping Stone
Failure is the bridge to our great future. To get to that future you must pass through that bridge. It will interest you to also know that, there is no shortcut or alternative route to that destination. Understand the so called failure and utilize it in the making of your dream a reality. This was the very reason Dale Carnegie opined that, “We must develop success from failure. Discouragement and failure are the two surest stepping stones to success.”

It Is Part Of Success
Until now, we know failure to be the opposite of success. Failure is part of success not neccessarily the opposite. Have you heard of any success story without a failure story inclusive? I believe there’s none. “Behind every successful man, there’s a lot of unsuccesful years”—Bob Brown . Learn to measure your success by the number of times you failed and never gave up.


Failure Reveals—Learn From it.
Failure Is A Price—Pay It
Failure Is Not The End—Don’t Give Up
Failure is a stepping Stone—Mount it
Failure Is an Opportunity—Seize it

Never forget the words of Pete Zafra, “People who are afraid to fail can never experience the joy of success”
