Let’s face it, failure is every human’s biggest fear. The irony about failure is that it’s inevitable. I have had my own setbacks in life and in times like those I look for motivation. I turn to people who are successful and have achieved what they had set out to achieve. Guess what I learnt? They have all failed at one point or another! So here are 6 successful celebrities and their takes on failure.
“Success is not a good teacher, failure makes you humble. We have to realize failure is part of our life. Failure and success are not permanent.”
“I have had unsuccessful films, but I learned a lot from those films. I give my failures as much importance as my success.”
“I don’t take failure seriously. The only thing I do seriously is march forward. If I fall, I get up and march again.”
“I have learnt a lot from my low phase when my films were not doing well. I have learned that no matter what you do, you just have to keep some patience and things will happen.”
“Failure is a given part of life. There is no way you can control the future. The only thing you can control is how you get over it.”
“Failure is extremely difficult to handle, but those that do come out stronger. What did this failure teach me? Is the question you will need to ask. You will feel miserable. You will want to quit, like I wanted to when nine publishers rejected my first book. But remember – if you are failing at something, that means you are at your limit or potential. And that’s where you want to be.”
Just imagine what we would be missing if these successes had all given up. So, the next time you feel low and out just look back at this post and pull through it. I know you can do it!
