Do you know who this person is? This is Jack Ma, founder Aliexpress.com talking about his failure.
We all grow up just fine. A good education, a good family, and a healthy career. But the problem starts when you start failing. Failing is inevitable. Dealing with failure puts our ground off the feet.
The only people who don’t fail, are the ones who are living 6 feet under the ground.
Want some inspiration here you go. Watch Nick Vujicic:
If he can do it, so can you.
The only people, we people face, these days, is that our parents are raising us with a golden spoon. You are given whatever you ask for without getting into so much trouble.
The parents of this generation don’t let their kids leave out of the comfort zone. They want their kids to grow, to educate like normal kids, to do full-time jobs, to get married, and to raise their kids in the same manner.
The only thing wrong with this is this is killing our true potential.
“Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear.” (Quran, 2:286)
So, if you think your life is hard, you need a shift in your perspective.
Life is lived once, and if you live it well, once is enough.
When in pain, remember that every pain, every failure, every distress is from Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala & only Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala knows what is best for us.
Sometimes, the pain we get is to divert us back to the right track. Maybe, whatever you’re asking or doing is not good for you, and Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala prevented you from that.
And other times it is a test from Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala. In both cases remember that Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala is always with you.
When faced with calamity, focus on what you can learn from it?
Every failure is your opportunity to grow. If you do not fail enough, how will you know what is working for you?
If you really want to succeed, double your rate of failure.
Don’t just fail, fail better, the next time, and even better the next time.
This world is created people who are not smarter than you, and who are not better than you. They just did what their heart told them to do. And learned from every failure they got. You can do the same, starting from today!
