(15) Is there any Value in Failure ?
Success is like climbing a ladder or running a race...
Some people slip and fell as they climb. Slipping and falling are
But to reach the top, you do not necessary need to slip or fall. You
should try not to slip or fall. You do not need to experience failure
to be successful.
It is OK to fail but it is not OK to think that failure is OK...
Yes, it is alright to fail. But you do not have to choose to be so. If
you can be successful without a failure, why should you choose to be so?
I would rather come home from a battle unscratched than losing my
eyes, hands and legs eh? It is really confusing to me reading why some
people think that we should fail first only then, we can be successful.
Let's be honest with which you choose:
a) A mentor who reach success without any failure
b) A mentor who went thru failures after failures before he finally
Of course, someone who is in the 'failure situation' now will choose
(b) for hope and inspiration. But if you are in a starting position,
which will you choose?
If I have a choice, I will choose to be successful without having to
go thru failures... and I will prefer a mentor who is such.
