Default Behind Success: Failure

Behind every success stories, is there a time wherein you failed in any aspects?

I failed to act on my ideas and delayed their implementation.
With time it was making less and less sense to work on them.

So to recap if you have an idea start working on it right away.
Don't listen to that criticizing little voice in your head that it may not work.
What if it works out ?

See some of Jim Rohn's materials. He was a great person.

Every successful person in business has failed in the past, and most likely will fail again in the future. Failure is how we learn, and how we grow. You need failure to show what not to do, and to see what works for you and what doesn't. If everyone looked at failure in a positive light and realized the potential growth from your mistake, they'd be on the path to success much sooner.

Not every business has success stories. It is all about how you overcome the struggles and difficulties. Learning from each mistake will take everyone higher from the usual place.

I am very true. Unfortunately, it did not happened yet with me. Even, yet I've not get any success story in my life. The fields in which I have tried got defended on every time due to my luck. I wish i build my story very soon.

When you dont face failure, you may not appreciate your success as much! And failure is very much a part of life. You have to experience it and struggle with it to come up in life.
