Nectar Of Wisdom

One that fails

Nonperformance of what is requested or expected

The condition or fact of not achieving the desired end or ends

A failure is a man who has blundered, but is not able to cash in on the experience.

Being good people is similar to being a goal keeper, no matter how many goals you save people remember the one you missed.

Bury your failure and yield fruits of success.

Do not take rest after a success otherwise people will take your previous

I victory as a luck in your next failure. I

Don’t get disappointed whenever you fall because only fallen leaves

I have the power to touch great heights when wind blows.

Don’t loose head in success and heart in failure.

Every bad situation will have something positive in it. Even a stopped clock shows correct time twice a day.

Failure is an event Never the person.

Failure is not falling down, but staying down.

Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.

Failures are milestones of success provided we don’t quit.     – Hemant C. Lodha

Failures don’t plan to fail. Most of them just fail to plan.

Fear offailure often can be worse than failure itself. When infants learn to walk, they keep falling; but to them it is notfailing so they got up.

Formula for failure-“Try to please everybody”.

Full stop is not end because we can write new sentence after it. Failure is not the real end but it can be a real beginning.

Good judgement comes from experience and often experience comes from bad judgement.

Good people are good because they have come to wisdom through failure.

Great people are remembered Not because they never made MISTAKES or FAILED But because failure didn’t stop their efforts till they SUCCEED.

Have you observed how at any social occasion successful people attract other successful people? Failures get together they will moan, groan and complain.

I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

I’d rather be a failure at something I love than a success at something I hate

– George Burns

If there exists no possibility of failure, victory is meaningless.

If we practice poorly, we play poorly. The difference between success and failure is the difference between doing exactly right and almost right.

In great attempts it is glorious even to fail.

Inside of a ring or out, nothing wrong with going down. It’s staying down that’s wrong.                                                                                           – Muhammad Ali

It is impossible to fail totally if you dare to try.

It is wise to keep in mind that no success or failure is necessarily fatal.

Many people can be responsible for your success but you are responsible for your failure.                                                                           – Swami Vivekanand

No one has travelled the Road of Success without Crossing the Streets of Failure.

No one has travelled the roof of success without crossing the steps offailure.

Preparation means tolerating failure but not accepting it. It means having the courage to face defeat without feeling defeated, being disappointed without discouraged.

Sometimes hurting is needed to make you grow. Failure is needed to make you know. Loss is needed to make you gain. Because some lessons are best when learn through pain.

Success always hugs you in Private. But failure always Slaps you in the Public.

SUCCESS introduces you to the WORLD. DEFEAT introduces the world to YOU…!!

Success is nothing more a few simple disciplines practised daily and failure is nothing more than a few small errors repeated daily.

The men who try to do something and fail are infinitely better than those who try to do nothing and succeed.                                                              – Lloyd Jones

The Single finger which wipes out our tears during our FAILURES is much better than the 10 fingers which come together to clap for our VICTORY..

TRY is a small word but can make big difference. If we try we risk failure but if we do not try we are sure offailure.

When kids fall, it is learning not failing. We all are kids while starting something new.

When you are right no one remembers but when you are wrong no one forgets.

Yesterday’s formula for success is often tomorrow’s recipe for failure.

The Hare and the Tortoise

Once upon time a tortoise and a hare had an argument about who was faster. They decided to settle the argument with a race. They agreed on a route and started off the race. The hare shot ahead and ran briskly for some time. Then seeing that he was far ahead of the tortoise, he thought he’d sit under a tree for some time and relax before continuing the race. He sat under the tree and soon finished the race, emerging as the undisputed champ. The hare woke up and realized that he’d lost the race.

The moral of the story is that slow and steady wins the race. This is the version of the story that we’ve all grown up with.

But then recently, someone told me a more interesting version of this story. It continues.

The hare was disappointed at losing the race and he did some soul searching. He realized that he’d lost the race only because he had been overconfident, careless and lax. If he had not taken thing for granted, there’s no why the tortoise could have beaten him. So he challenged the tortoise to another race. The tortoise agreed. This time, the hare went all out and ran without stopping from start to finish. He won by several miles.

The moral of the story?

Fast and consistent will always beat the slow and steady. If you have two kinds of people in your organization, .one slow, methodical and reliable, and the other fast and still reliable at what he does, the fast and reliable chap will consistently climb the organizational ladder faster than the slow, methodical chap. It’s good to be slow and steady; but it’s better to be fast and reliable. But the story doesn’t end here.

The tortoise did some thinking this time, and realized that there’s no way he can beat the hare in a race the way it was currently formatted. He thought for a while, and then challenged the hare to another race, but on a slightly different route. The hare agreed. They started off. In keeping with his self-made commitment to be consistently fast, the hare took off and ran at top speed until he came to a broad river. The finishing line was a couple of kilometers on the other side of the river. The hare sat there wondering what to do. In the meantime the tortoise trundled along, got into the river, swam to the opposite bank, continued walking and finished the race.

The moral of the story?

First identify your core competency and then change the playing field to suit your core competency. In an organization, if you are a good speaker, make sure you create opportunities to give presentation that enable the senior management to notice you. If your strength is analysis, make sure you do some sort of research, make a repot and send it upstairs. Working to your strengths will not only get you noticed, but will also create opportunities for growth and advancement.

The story still hasn’t ended.

The hare and the tortoise, by this time, had became pretty good friends and they did some thinking together. Both realized that the last race could have been run better. So they decided to do the last race again, but to run as a team this time. They started off, and this time the hare carried the tortoise till the riverbank. There, the tortoise took over and swam across with the hare on his back. On the opposite bank, the hare again carried the tortoise and they reached the finishing line together. They both felt a greater sense of satisfaction than they’d felt earlier.

The moral of the story?

It’s good to be individually brilliant and to have strong core competencies; but unless you’re able to work in a team and harness each other’s core competencies, you’ll always perform below par because there will always be situations at which you’ll do poorly and someone else does well.

Teamwork is mainly about situational leadership, letting the person with the relevant core competency for a situation take leadership.

There are more lessons to be learnt from his story. Note that neither the hare nor the tortoise gave up after failures. Th~ hare decided to work harder and put in more effort after his failure. The tortoise changed his strategy because he was already working as hard as he could.

In life, when faced with failure, someone it is appropriate to work harder and put in more effort. Sometimes it is appropriate to change strategy and try something different. And sometimes it is appropriate to do both.

The here and the tortoise also learnt another vital lesson. When we stop competing against a rival and instead start competing against the situation, we perform far better.

To sum up, the story of the hare and tortoise teaches us many things. Chief among them are that fast and consistent will always beat slow and steady; work to your competencies; pooling resources and working as a team will.


letting loose a solid free throw

you envision the perfect shot

but the ball bounces off the rim

and failure firs your thoughts

if you have a goal in life

never quit until it’s met

though you may fail the first time

or miss one shot

the game’s not over yet

– J. Allen

Failure doesn’t mean you are a failure…

It does mean you haven’t succeeded yet.

Failure doesn’t mean you have accomplished nothing…

It does mean you have learned something.

Failure doesn’t mean you have been a fool…

It does mean you had a lot of faith.

Failure doesn’t mean you have been disgraced…

It does mean you were willing to try.

Failure doesn’t mean you do not have it….

It does mean you have to do something in a different way.

Failure doesn’t mean you are inferior…

It does mean you are not yet perfect.

Failure doesn’t mean you wasted your life…

It does mean you have a reason to start afresh.

Failure doesn’t mean you should give up… It does mean you must try harder.

Failure doesn’t mean you will never make it… It does mean it will take a little longer.

Failure doesn’t mean God has abandoned you… It does not mean God has a better idea.
