 We Learn From Failure, Not From Success 

Date of Publish - Monday, 8th January 2018



We learn from failure, not from success is a great quote by Bram Stocker an Irish author best known today for his novel Dracula. This is the message to every youth not to be depressed in failure. Failure is part of success. Every time we fail we are presented with an opportunity to prove ourselves. India has world’s highest suicide rates for youth due to depression and fear of failure. Let me tell you, my dear friends, every successful person failed several times but they were never found in trauma rather they always found the other way to success. While you struggle every day to achieve your goals you must keep in your mind that if there is no struggle there is no progress. Albert Einstein as a child didn’t start speaking until he was four, reading until he was seven, and was thought to be mentally handicapped. He went on to win Nobel Prize. No person is successful by birth he becomes successful through failures. Before Thomas Edison invented the light bulb he failed thousands of time but he said, “I have not failed thousands of time. I have succeeded in proving that those ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work.” There are many such success stories which strengthen the quote we learn from failure, not from success. Failure teaches us much more than success. It says that you have to practice harder, and you shall not be sad, you are not far behind. My dear friends, ups, and downs are part of life, accept it and move forward. Think that there was some mistake in your performance analyze your mistake and correct it. Friends, many times we are depressed after we encounter failure but we all must be aware that failure is part of success and there is a great journey in front of us. We youth are the future of our nation and if we come across any of the traumatized youth it’s our duty to help and explain failure is part of success believe in yourself because Swami Vivekananda said, “You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.”
