Monday inspiration- Do not be afraid to fail

I know what's going through your mind as you are reading this post.  Why would he say I shouldn't be afraid of failure? Does he know what it means to fail?? I still say to you do not be afraid to fail.


The fear to fail is worse than failure itself. So many people are really scared of failing,  what would people say if I fail??? But I say to you again don't be afraid to fail.

People have huge dreams but some of which would not be implemented because of the fear of failure. Are you a worker with that perfect business idea but haven't started because you don't want to fail?? I say to you today rise and never be afraid of failing.

Are you a student in anticipation of an examination which would change  your life for ever but afraid that you could fail and become a disappointment? Do not be scared

The phobia of failure should never stop you. Great men in our world today actually tried and failed in their life time. The likes of Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, Nigerian Nobel prize winner Professor Wole Soyinka to mention but a few failed in their journey to the top.

Abraham Lincoln failed US presidential election but never gave up, Thomas Edison after continuous failure came up with the electric bulb when asked this is what he said and I quote
"I have not failed, I've just found 10,000 ways that wouldn't work"
So my dear what is that situation worse than this

Failure happens to strengthen you. It is not enough that you have tried and failed but never,never,never give up.when you fail rise and keep trying do not stop.

Before that enormous goal you have in mind can be achieved you have to fall so as to rise up on your feet and continue. One only becomes a failure when one gives up. The fact you failed doesn't makes you a failure NEVER!! It is only but a postponed success.

So I say to you today Do not be afraid to fail. I leave with these powerful quotes concerning failure

something we can avoid only by saying nothing,
doing nothing, and being nothing.” - Denis
Waitley

“When you take risks you learn that there
will be times when you succeed and there will

“You build on failure. You use it as a

energy, or any of your time, or any of your
space.” - Johnny Cash

“It’s not how far you fall, but how high you
bounce that counts.” - Zig Ziglar

for fear of failing.” - J.K. Rowling

“No human ever became interesting by not
failing. The more you fail and recover and

work out for them with zero struggle? They
usually have the depth of a puddle. Or they
don’t exist.” - Chris Hardwick

“When we give ourselves permission to fail,
we, at the same time, give ourselves permission
to excel.” - Eloise Ristad

nothing, not failure or suffering or even death,

to the extreme; you push limits; you spend your
time building legacies. Those do not die.” -

“What is the point of being alive if you don’t
at least try to do something remarkable?” –
