How Do You Know When You Have Failed?

Do you consider yourself to be successful? Or do you feel like a failure? What is the definition of success...or failure?

I don't think it is possible to really define success accurately. Success will mean something different to every individual.

According to the OXFORD dictionary, success can be defined as "the gaining of what is aimed at".

The best description I found, in my personal opinion, was in DICTIONARY.COM..." the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors; the accomplishments of one's goals".

"Success" is defined by the individual.

For one person it might be his/her goal to have $1000.00 in a bank account. To this person, it might be a huge success to achieve this goal.

Yet, the next person's goal might be to travel in space.

Is traveling in space achievable? Well, Richard Branson has just done it.

But do you think it is achievable for you? Maybe. Maybe not... Only you would know that.

So, whatever your definition of success is, there is only one way to achieve it...

Fall seven times and stand up eight. ~ Japanese Proverb

There you have it. It's simple, yet not so easy.

All you have to do is to get up one more time than falling. Whether you fall seven times, ten times, even one hundred times...as long as you get up one more time, you are still going. You are "still in the race".

Falling is not failing. A "failed attempt" is not failure. As long as you get up again, as long as you try again, you haven't failed yet. You have merely found a way how you should not do it.

Failure is when you decide not to get up again. It is when you decide not to try one more time.

It is not when someone else tells you that you are a failure. It is not when someone else says you are crazy trying to do what you want to do. That is to accept someone else's opinion as truth for yourself.

As long as you still have the courage, the will, the drive...to get up one more time, to try again, you have not failed yet.

Simple, yet not easy. We are often faced with the temptation to just give up. Take the easy way out...just quit. I know, I've been there, got the T-shirt. I can show many bruises and scars...lol. But, you know what? I'm not done.

If you are down at the moment, reach out. This blockchain has some of the most supportive communities I have ever seen.

Get up one more time and let's do this together. Whatever it is that you want to achieve, don't try to do it alone. Engage with the members of your community and go for it.

Most really say this topic is interesting I must say the topic really got my are only to see that the content is all about charging us to be courageous and how to summon the ability to stand firm and i must say that makes it so interesting,cause that is what an article should look like.

Let me say helping a life is one important thing every individual in this community should know and I must say you have come to that length by actually sharing this content.

One thing I was born with or I should say I grow up to know is that

Failure comes from the mind,just as success too comes from the mind

Which we don't fail or succeed if will have not see it first in our mind, nevertheless the place of hard work should not be overlooked as it gat a way of helping us or crowning our efforts in becoming a successful person.

Life is field with so many challenges and difficulties and our ability to overcome this trial or difficult moment is what will distinguished us among others.

People too tens to say alot of things about us at times,but one understanding that we should have is that , people's opinions or view about us should not limit how far we can go in life,we should not give room to anyone to talk us down,but rather we should keep on pushing at all cost.

I tell people around me that even when you fail at a point in life just as you have mentioned too,it is a way of telling you that you need to do that project or assignment Better and to me it gives you the energy to come out much more better again.

Note this it is not a crime to fail as you have said and I totally agreed with you in that,but it becomes a crime to fail and never rise up again, failing to me is a test of our ability ,while success is a prove of how far out mind is,which to me I believe it is so much greater than ability.

Finally let me say thanks for this and you have said it all, little do I know and have said it too and I hope to see more interesting content from you in future
