There is an old saying, if the enemy inside is conquered, the enemy outside cannot do any harm. Most great people believed it and still do. Same is with our mind.
Let’s accept the fact that everybody fails, regardless of the extreme hard work one puts into it.
How one sees the failure is what matters. Someone gives 1000 excuses for his failure; someone else uses this failure as lessons and moves forward to do the work in a different way. He always finds a way to achieve what he has thought. The great visionary in him compels him to finish his task.
If we consider the case of THOMAS ALVA EDISON, the American inventor and businessman, he failed 10,000 times. Yet he didn’t stop. Why? Because he had visualized what a bulb could provide to the world. He had seen the light. Nothing stopped him, nor made him change his mind. Because his WHY was greater than his HOW, regardless of the failures.
Let me share with you the example of JACK MA, the founder of ALIBABA. I won’t talk about what he has achieved, or how he achieved it. What I want to mention here is, about his vision. He had a vision that one day; everyone in CHINA will buy and sell through internet. Today it is an awesome idea, but when he started, people thought he had lost his mind. But he believed in himself, because he had seen the bigger picture. He struggled a lot like all the great entrepreneurs and he made it. He made possible, what seemed impossible. And he changed, not just lives but the future of generations to come.
It’s all about mindset. All the winners have faced thousand times more obstacles than a failure has, but they kept on trying. Because they knew the outcome and they were ready to walk the EXTRA MILE.
