Success is the only thing the world looks at,But the failure and hard work done for it is known only to the person.
The world only celebrates the people who have already succeeded,But that’s merely the end of the story.On seeing the entire story it portrays that ‘More lessons can be learned from the failure that got them there..
At one point everyone fail in life even you are going to suffer through failure,But the response you make for it matters.The problem with most people is that they link failure with complete defeat which is an absolute nonsense.When you go through the history of famous people you will come to know that they are the one who failed most times
When we fail, we learn .I accept the fact ‘failure hurts’ but its part of life design I hereby brought some great people to teach you some lessons through their life and failure..

Thomas Alva Edison
This great man does’t need an intro
Thomas Edison was an American Inventor,Business man who has been described as America’s Great Inventor.He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world including phonograph,the motion picture camera and the long lasting practical electric bulb.He does not succeed in overnight,it took years to reach..
One day Thomas Edison came home and gave a paper to his mother. He told her, “My teacher gave this paper to me and told me to give it to my mother.”
His mother’s eyes were tearful as she read the letter out loud to her child: Your son is a genius. This school is too small for him and doesn’t have enough good teachers for training him. Please teach him yourself.
After many, many years, after Edison’s mother died and he was now one of the greatest inventors of the century, one day he was looking through old family things. Suddenly he saw a folded paper in the corner of a drawer in a desk. He took it and opened it up.
On the paper was written: Your son is addled [mentally ill]. We won’t let him come to school any more.
Edison cried for hours and then he wrote in his diary: “Thomas Alva Edison was an addled child that, by a hero mother, became the genius of the century.”
In fact, upon his successful invention of the light bulb, a reporter asked him, “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?”
“I didn’t fail 1,000 times,” Edison answered. “The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”
That is the right attitude.
Lesson : Never give up until you reach success,As your dreams are high your failure rate will also be high.
Failure are the stepping stones to reach success
