Failure The Steering Wheel to Success
FAILURE vs SUCCESS
In life it doesn’t matter how many times we fail.
Too many attempts can lead to one massive success, which can heal the pains of failure.
instead he learnt something new from each attempt that he made which later lead him to the
massive success of creating an Incandescent electric light bulb, which we all use today.
Just one more attempt immortalized him in pictures and made his name stand the test of time.
Even though he wasn’t the first to start the invention of a Light Bulb, but his extraordinarily
positive perception of life was the key to this great invention.
Famous American inventor Thomas Edison wasn’t the only one who contributed to the development
of this revolutionary technology. Many other notable figures like Italian inventor Alessandro Volta, 1800,
developed the first practical method of generating electricity, the voltaic pile.
Humphry Davy, an English chemist and inventor, produced the world’s first electric lamp by connecting
voltaic piles to charcoal electrodes. Davy’s 1802 invention was known as an electric arc lamp.
In 1840, British scientist Warren de la Rue developed an efficiently designed light bulb using a
coiled platinum filament in place of copper.
in 1848, Englishman William Staite improved the longevity of conventional arc lamps by developing
a clockwork mechanism that regulated the movement of the lamps’ quick-to-erode carbon rods.
In 1850, English chemist Joseph Swan tackled the cost-effectiveness problem of previous inventors
and by 1860 he had developed a light bulb that used carbonized paper filaments in place of ones
made of platinum.
Edison realized that the problem with Swan’s design was the filament. A thin filament with
high electrical resistance would make a lamp practical because it would require only a little current
to make it glow. He demonstrated his light bulb in December 1879.
Edison was given the credit because he resisted every doubt of failing and even, bought patent and
joined forces with Swan, and other in order to perfect the innovation.
if he gave up like the earlier inventors, he wouldn’t have that much credit as he had till date.
Failure is not the end but the beginning of something new, something amazing, something great.
When old flowers fade new ones sprout out and they are even more beautiful and shine brighter,
than the faded ones. When one door closes many other open, because ‘NO’ means Next Opportunity,
if we don’t fail, we won’t learn.
If a baby don’t crawl, he or she can’t walk, and when he or she starts walking, he or she has to
fall a few times to learn how to stand firm or hold onto something to avoid falling again.
life is process with different steps at different levels.
Growth is a gradual process, without the struggle their won’t be growth, because nothing grows in
perfect condition, as a human their can never be a perfect condition,”its only a fool that thinks
about happiness all the time” the wise think about sorrow, because every living must die.
Failure gives us a new purpose, a fresh platform to make amends. Failure purges the mind and brings
about critical thinking and deep reasoning. Failure is the most important part of success cause its lessons
springs forth knowledge and understanding.
”When you fail don’t quit, instead make out time to rest, purge your mind and continue”
don’t ever quit, because their is no end to what you can achieve if you keep trying, there is always
a way, there is always an open door, there is always light at the end of each dark tunnel, but be
patient and persistent, stay un-defeated, conquer, because greatness is not measured by the amount
of success you have achieved but by trials and tribulations, of sorrow, of pain and obstacles you have
endured. ”Their is no smoke without fire”, one has to go through the furnace of humiliation,
sorrow and pain before they can achieve greatness. Every greatness has a story of its ups and down
and its never an easy one because the beginning is always the hardest, there is no shortcut to
greatness only lessons and eternal success.
Gold and silver is tested in fire this makes it shatterproof. Greatness\Success is a test of courage,
without challenges there won’t be any upgrade, don’t fear failing instead embrace it and be proud of it,
because its through failure that we succeed, its through criticism that we become better.
Success is good when its internal but if its not worked hard for, it would give the Winner a sense
of relaxation thereby slowing them from the greater task ahead, this causes limitation and laziness
which leads to more failure.
Their is no limitation for a failed project, every minute, seconds, hour and day counts and the focus
is to get better. Failing is a training for a resilient mind, The secret of winning is in trying.
People think of death as failure but without death their can’t be birth , if hunger don’t exist,
humans won’t work in order to put food on the table, if there is no lack then their won’t be need,
without sickness then you can’t appreciate life and good health, without poverty then you won’t
evil or good, fail or succeed, but all this works together so that destiny can be fulfilled. If its too straight
then it won’t have any meaning added to it, there is no way we can cheat the forces of nature,
life works both ways, you can’t find two evil in court, one would be corrupt and other good.
”We should boast of failure because failing dosen’t make us a failure but accepting failure
makes us a failure”
If life was straight and rosy then their won’t be any knowledge learnt because hard times create
opportunities for an active mind, there is no way you acquire new knowledge if you don’t fail at
the old ones, to me Success is weakness cause nothing new is learnt when there is no challenge.
To succeed then there should be failure because failing is motivation, and a room for new
opportunities for a persistent scholar. failure builds us both mentally, spiritually, physically
and it makes our vision get more clearer and more deeper, so when there is success we won’t
relax because we have been trained and went through the furnace of failure.
Be inspired and stop allowing a little failure to make you give up , instead see it as a beginning
of something new and much better than the old.
Remember these that in the eyes of Men, Jesus Christ they said have failed because He died on the
Cross of Calvary but what they didn’t figure out know is that His death brought us Forgiveness, a way out of
these life, His death brought us grace, His death united us with God so that through Him we can
become the righteousness of God. In His death He achieved greatness, in His death he broke the
power of death, His death brought Him honor and made His name greater than any other name.
This immortalized Him in the minds of generations to come, in His Failure He found Victory and
owned the key to life and death . With this knowledge and understanding, we agree that There is
no success without failure.
