I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that’s why I succeed______ MICHAEL JORDAN

It was Albert Einstein who said that anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried something new. Today, we make mistakes and we get discouraged from doing it again. Today we make mistakes and we stop redefining those things we love for our idea to become more clearer. Today, we make mistakes and we just give it up and we never become better and those beautiful dreams, imagination, aspiration and desires die in us.

There’s something important about successful people that we have all failed to understand, and that’s their failure when they first started, they also stumbled,  they failed, adversities come to their path, they were criticized, they were made just of as if they were mad, but most of all they never for once gave up.

Today, when we fail we become pessimistic, we become relentless, we give up all hopes that  can become better at doing it and that has killed a lot of dreams in us, beautiful imaginations have been let go off simply because we are afraid of criticisms, vision, passion and mission have been given up because we are timid they’re going to make jest of us.

Imagine someone being rejected by all radio stations in India because of his heavy voice now becomes a television host, politician, Actor and a film producer, and that’s no other person than Amitabh Bachan. Imagine a man who was called failure by his teachers becoming a Prime Minister of United Kingdom from 1997 to 2007 and that’s noother person than Tony Blair. Imagine somebody like Michael Jordan who was dropped out of his school basketball team now rank as fifth in NBA throw scoring leaders with over 1.7 USD in 2018. Can you believe somebody was rejected 1500 times when he wanted to sell his script, the person now has over 400 USD as his asset as at 2015 and that’s no other person than Sylvester Stallone (Rainbow). A renowned football player, Lionel Messi said he used to serve tea to support his football training, today  he earns over 40 million Euro yearly with numerous award in his career  that’s one of the best in the history of football

Failure is there to make our idea more clearer. We should not allow those criticisms to get into our heads, those adversities that come to our path we should use it as a form of training or an encouragement to make us grow better. We should shut our ears to those pessimistic voices that discourage us from doing what we have passion for, if need be we should stop moving with people who are not determined, focus, ambitious and who cannot persevere.

Michael Jordan once said “I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that’s why I succeed”. Remember there are stories of men who are successful and they never fail and the world knows them simply because the world is interested in listening to stories of men who failed and triumph. Remember, there are also stories of men who also tried to break through but gave up at a point in time and the world never know them today. Remember, History are made by men who have different stories and the world is only interested in the stories of men who never give up at the face of trauma.
