“There is no failure except in no longer trying.” ― Elbert Hubbard

Very often, we do all the hard work and when we don't see the desired results, we turn around and walk away - even though we may have been just one step away from success. The problem is, we seldom realize we are just one step away from achieving our goals. In the highway of life, there are no milestones telling us that success is one kilometer ahead.

When I was a kid, I was weak in solving math problems. I would spend my day trying to unscramble those maths problems. Sometimes I found the answer, sometimes I didn’t, but I always made some sort of progress.

Those early math problems taught me an important lesson - When things feel impossible and when it seems like you will never find the answer, that is exactly when you have to try even harder to move forward and find a way.

Believe that you can do it, be persistent, and before you know it, the problem will be solved.

To succeed, one must learn to embrace failure, and not be scared by it. Failure holds valuable lessons for us - if only we are willing to learn.If you want to succeed, double your rate of failure. Don't dwell on your failures. Don't play the blame game. Don't doubt your ability. Learn from your mistakes. Re-focus on your goals. And keep going.

Fail often, but never lose sight of your goals. Sooner or later, there is bound to be light.That old truism about winners and quitters still holds good. Winners never quit. And quitters never win.
