People Who Avoid Failure Inevitably Avoid Success

History tells us that while attempting to invent the incandescence light bulb, Thomas Edison, the world famous American Inventor, failed 10,000 times.


After 5,000 failed experiments, his laboratory attendant said to him; “Mr. Edison, we have failed 5,000 times, shouldn’t we stop?” Mr. Edison replied; “Son, we have not failed 5,000 times, we have only discovered 5,000 ways in which it cannot work. We are closer to the solution now than when we started.”


Success is the achievement of predetermined goals. But how do you respond when things do not go the way you planned? Do you feel discouraged and depressed? Does it make you want to quit? Everybody wants to succeed, no one wants to fail. However, our knowledge of success cannot be complete without knowing how to handle failure.


Successful people see failure as a stepping stone, not a stumbling block. They have the right attitude that failure will neither be fatal nor final. They refer to their failure as “learning experiences” or “temporary setbacks”.


On the other hand, unsuccessful people are usually those who are so afraid of failure and rejection that they spend their lives avoiding the risks that could result in failure. They do not realize that those who avoid failure inevitably avoid success.


Don’t be afraid to fail. Success will not come without you taking a risk.

Don’t let what you have done label you negatively. That you failed an interview, an examination or a sales pitch does not make you a failure. Who you are is different from what you have done.


Don’t say to yourself; “I am a failure” just because things did not work out right. If you do that, you have internalized your failure. If you allow failure to get into your heart, it will follow you everywhere.


A key thing to note is that failure is usually a sign that you need to change something. If things are not working, something is out of place.

Be willing to make adjustments prayerfully. Just a small change can result in an outstanding breakthrough.


Always remember that failure is not peculiar to you. Most successful people can write volumes on how not to succeed. They have tried many things that did not work. However, the world has not recognized them for the many ventures in which they failed. No. They have been recognized for the few areas in which they have achieved outstanding success.


Dear friend, as you travel on the road to success, you will have challenges. If you get knocked down, are you going to give up and stay down, wallowing in your defeat? Or are you going to get back on your feet as quickly as you can? You can use failure as a springboard to success.

Money versus Value

Money must never take God’s place in your life. Settle that forever, if you will prosper God’s way.

If I were to have something to say to the young generation of Nigerians today, it will be this; “Money is only a means of exchange. If you want to break free from poverty, keep this at the back of your mind. You will not get something for nothing.”

The Best Way to Make Money!

When people say there is no money in town, they may not be stating the truth. The truth is that there is money, but they have not been able to see it. Because you do not see money with your eyes, you see it with your mind.

The Best Way to See Money!

Many years ago, when I was still a young boy, I used to think that prosperity was only for a certain class of people. Those who drive big cars and live in big houses and from the look of things then, we did not quite fit into that category.

The Solution to Poverty

The quality of life in our country may never be better than the quality of our thoughts. It is our culture (mental models) that determines our success.   If our culture believes that wealth belongs to some particular set of people and the other set has to work for those people to get money, then money will never flow to everybody and that creates a scarcity mentality.

Three Ways To Increase Your Income

The quickest route to promotion is problem-solving. This also holds with respect to finances. You do not get something for nothing. Money is only a means of exchange. It flows to us in proportion to the value we give in solving problems for others.
You have been designed to solve a particular problem in this world. You must identify that area of need and define your purpose. Your purpose in life is not what you decide. It is too late to decide it now. It was decided by God before you were born. Therefore, it is not what you decide; it is what you discover by asking God
