DON’T STOP TILL YOU GET ENOUGH:
Dear Friends, People fail because they believe that it is possible to fail. But there is no failure; there is only feedback. Looking at both success and failure, there is always a picture of the future that we have in our mind.
We compare the outcome of our efforts with this visualisation that we have, and if the two match, we feel successful. If they don’t, however, not all of us take it as failure.
Many of us take it as feedback, in that we realize that we did not do what we should have done to realize our vision. This tells us sooner than later that mistakes always lead to undesirable outcomes, and that a different outcome demands a different action. Of course, the objective stays the same, and we must constantly modulate our actions as per repeated feedbacks till we get to our objective. That is success.
Remember, if we want something that we believe we deserve and persistently work towards it with a positive frame of mind, we are bound to get it.
A thousand failed attempts at inventing an electric bulb made Thomas Edison say that he had found one thousand ways of how not to invent a light bulb. Edison did not say that he had failed.
Had Colonel Sanders taken repeated rejections of his fried chicken recipe as failure, there would not be so many KFC outlets around the world.
Colonel sanders once said, “I've only had two rules: Do all you can and do it the best you can. It's the only way you ever get that feeling of accomplishing something. “
Come to think of it, inventing an electric bulb and making fried chicken are not much different from getting a career in banking.
