Short essay on Failures are the Pillars of Success (Free to read). Life is a struggle. It is a mixture of successes and failures. Nobody can be sure of success all through his life. Failure can come in any venture and that sometimes most unexpectedly.
A person, who loses heart after failure, is a lost soul. But a person, who takes failure in its own stride and continues his efforts for success, does succeed in the long run. The story of King Bruce is too well-known to need to be described. That is why one poet has said,
‘Ties a lesson you should heed: Try, try again!
Till at last you do succeed Try, try again!”
All the great men of the world- the religious reformers, the scientists and others were men of great determination. They had to face great obstacles in the fulfillment of their mission. But they persevered relentlessly and at last they were able to achieve their aim.
In life we find sometimes a man failing in one particular profession. But he succeeds in some other field simply if he goes on trying to know where his real aptitude lies. Failure in one field does not mean failure in all fields. A man who does not lose heart and goes on trying, at last gets vast experience in various fields. At last a time comes when he gets success in almost all ventures. A student who cannot pull on well in one subject or discipline may change his option; he is more likely to succeed in the new field if he works consistently and under somebody’s able guidance. It is rightly said that failures are the stepping stones to success. They may seem worthless in their own way but they have their inherent value. A political party which is routed in one election may carry the day in the next poll. The same is the case with players on the play-ground, indeed, with everybody in life.
