Failure Is Usually The Shortest Path To Success

failure is shortest path to success

Sounds crazy right? You might be wondering how failure is usually the shortest path to success. All I have to tell you now is this: "Take some few minutes to carefully read this article to the end and you will know why it was titled that way.

I'll begin with a personal encounter:
"All my life, I've always tried to be the perfect guy. I never wanted to fail in anything I did, so if I  thought there was a possibility of failing at anything, I just avoided it entirely.

The turning point came in my life when I realized that failure is also a path to success. In short it seems like the shortest path. Because when you fail in doing anything, you simply become better at it despite any shame or embarrassment associated with that failure.

It is when you look at the shame that it hinders you. When you are able to learn your lessons and your eyes are opened to the change that has taken place within you just by making that first attempt knowing you might fail, you will see the light in failure.

So I learnt how to try things out even when the chances of failure were glaring. Sometimes I succeeded, sometimes I failed. But the failures never mattered to me anymore because I saw the beauty of the change that it was working within me."

Like I was, there are many people in the world today who are too afraid to fail. They just avoid trying anything out because they are afraid of many things. They don't want to fail and become a laughing stock.  But they forget that staying idle without trying anything is even what makes one a real laughing stock!

There are accomplished public speakers and comedians who were utterly embarrassed and shamed the first time they tried to do anything in front of a crowd. It was failure to them as at that time. But what they experienced had contributed in building them up to where they are right now.

If you're learning a new skill or how to solve a problem, you will often fail as you are trying it for the first time, but as you get used to it, you become better. You wouldn't have been better than you were if failure wasn't there to test and challenge you in the beginning.

If you're learning a dance step or musical instrument, of course you will fail at it as you learn, then master it with time. Gaining mastery of any art or business is passing through and getting used to lots of failures. Those who are accomplished experts in their fields are those who have faced a lot of challenges disguised as failure, yet surmounted it.

We despise failure so much in our society that we fail to see that failure is inevitable to succeed. They are two sides of the same coin and always working hand in hand. You need to fail in order to succeed. Failure builds your success!

The more available you make yourself in the face of failure, the higher your chances of succeeding. But by locking yourself up and not attempting to try new things or break new grounds in your life, you will still find yourself trapped in the same position.

Don't despise failure and do not despair whenever you encounter it in your honest endeavor.. Give thanks that you had the opportunity to fail and you are made better by every failure. Your success isn't far away.

Stay bold and keep winning! .

A Practical Guide To Quit Porn For Good

I don't need to start defining what pornography is to you, why humans are attracted to it and how it affects the brain. You can use Google to find them out. I believe why you are reading this article is simply to find out how you can end the desire to see pornography for good. That's what I'm going to FOCUS on. No distractions.

Almost everyone who uses the internet knows what porn is, even though we'd like to pretend that it's not there, but we all know it's there.

The internet is one of the best things invented on earth and has led to quick exchange of information across nations and beyond borders.

Ideally, things should be improving rapidly based on this development, but guess what? Few people are actually using that internet for something useful. Many have been drawn to the dark side of the net where pornography lives.

Web statistics really show that a lot more people are spending more time viewing porn sites and the number is increasing.

Enough of the pr…

The Definition Of A True Woman

Previously, I wrote an article on the definition of a true man. It would be fair enough to also write and article for the women who read this blog.

Women are beautiful, lovely and sensitive creatures way different from men in a lot of things both mentally and physically. They are special in their own way and also play very important roles in our society.

Just like in the case of the men, value systems seem to be changing for women too.

Most women seem to rate themselves these days based mainly on their looks. They spend so much time and money in ensuring they look very good, clean and posh. They can do anything to look attractive and get attention.

Some even go to the extent of almost going nude on social media just to feel good about themselves and get reassuring likes.

Painfully, most of these same women don't pay attention to what is inside of them. They often neglect the unseen qualities which make them who they truly are.

There are some women who boast about how many men the…

After Reading This, Your Brain Will Not Remain The Same

I just came across this video on YouTube and I really think it has a wonderful content to be shared here on the bold winner's blog.

Dr. Lara Boyd, a researcher in neuroscience and neurobiology who established the Brain Behavior Lab had some very interesting facts to share with us about the human brain.

Contrary to what we thought, the brain doesn't stop changing or developing at a certain age. The brain constantly changes it's shape, chemical processes and patterns regularly.

And these changes are determined mainly by our individual behaviors. If we choose to change our brains, we must change our actions, what we do, where we go to, what we listen to, what we see around us.

There is no quick fix or drug to enhance neuroplasticity(the ability of your brain to reorganize itself and form new neural connections) than to change your behavior.

An interesting fact is that there is a degree of variability playing a great role in her research. The rates of neuroplasticity varies i…
