I believe that there is not one successful person who hadn't experienced failure. Life is a roller-coaster, full of unpredictable ups and downs. Sometimes when the downs get really down, we tend to lose all hope and feel that nothing is going to work out. We feel like giving up. Don't! Aim for Success.

Success and failure are two sides of the same coin. When you undertake on the journey of life, you are bound to face failure in every path. Many people fail to achieve their goals because they lose hope so easily. They fail because they think that they will and would give up long before it is all over. Actually, it's all in the mind. When you give up hope, you close doors to opportunity, discard your dreams, stop your progress, limit your enthusiasm and shut the doors to accomplishment. In short, you bring your journey of success to a screeching halt.

Success may mean (but it is not limited to) the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors, the attainment of wealth, position, honors, or the like. Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be. But there would always be the greatest barrier that would block our way to success and it is the fear of failure.

We all have fears, but the fear of failure will hinder your success like no other. You must realize that success is built upon failure. If you allow the hindrance of fear of failure to win, the opportunity for success will be severely hindered in its own right. Be on the winning side, and choose to overcome fear that will certainly be present when you are attempting something new and worthwhile. Never forget that failure is given as we go through life. We all make mistakes as we live our lives facing the future. Very rare do we reach success without problems, difficulties, and wrong decisions. Believe it or not, nothing worthwhile is ever reached without a struggle. You should persevere in the struggle, and not let the fear of failure rule your life. Life is being learned and lived with a keen sense of adventure and determination to succeed. If you are willing and ready, faith will carry you to victory while others were stopped dead in their tracks. Man may not be fearless but he may have the ability to overcome fear. We say "We're just humans, we make mistakes." but it does not mean we are weak. What makes us weak is our fear. We can't take another
