Refuse to remain fallen.
Refuse to quit.
Refuse to give up.
Refuse to accept a 'No' from life.
Just Say No
To fail without putting in
the efforts is wrong, but
failure in itself can never
Dare to fail, for only those who fail enough
can succeed enough. More than any one
single factor, it is your fear of failure that is
going to leave you as a failure.
No new venture guarantees
success and no new diversification
that it is better to face
outstanding failures than
Only those who are willing to persist in spite
of temporary set backs,
only those who are willing to persevere in
spite of midway failures,
only those who would not succumb to
defeats, can finally sign their own success
Failure is a parenthesis inside
which success hides and
history makers dig them out
through relentless striving
against all those failures.
Life cannot be punctuated
with success alone; failure
too will find its imprints.
There is no sunrise without sunset.
There is no life without death.
There is no success without failures.
"Achievement seems to be connected
with action. Successful men and
women keep moving. They make
mistakes, but they don't quit."
You don't have to accept your
failure if what you really want
to achieve is success.
Failure, they say, is the best teacher. We learn
and have more confidence in what we know
through trial and error, which onetime or
another has resulted in failure.
For every successful
have been one or
more failures. But
those who we call
successful are those
who refuse to accept
failure and believe
success is the other
side of failure.
Any time your effort is not
bringing a desired result, you
don't have to call it a failure.
Call it a challenge.
What is the difference between the two? One
is negative, the other is positive; one doesn’t
motivate, the other motivates.
What you need is
and motivation to
keep moving; that
is the solution to
Failure is an end thing;
challenge is an open
Failure means there is no way out, no
alternative, but a challenge is a question
mark asking another way out of the situation,
an alternative solution to the problem, the
job at hand.
"All who have accomplished great things
have had a great aim, have fixed their
gaze on a goal which was high, one which
sometimes seemed impossible."
A wise man once said if you cannot
fly, run. If you cannot run, walk. If
you cannot walk, crawl; just keep
If you fall down, you have to get up and start
moving. If not, other people will step on you
towards their achievement.
What you call failure and abandon is what
someone will step into with just a little
additional effort to reach achievement.
Balogun M. Adewale
"Many of life's failures are people
who did not realize how close they
were to success when they gave up.“
Never regret a day in your life. Good
days give you happiness. Bad days give
you experiences; Both are essential to
life. Keep going...
Happiness keeps you Sweet,
Trials keep you Strong,
Sorrows keep you Human,
Failures keep you humble,
Success keeps You Glowing,
But Only You keeps You Going!
"Life is not easy for any of us.
We must have perseverance
and above all confidence in
ourselves. We must believe
that we are gifted for
something and that this thing
must be attained.“
Luck is defined as "Preparation
Abraham Lincoln believed in preparation
before aiming at anything BIG and did
whatever it took to get the dream
It is recorded in history books that Abraham
Lincoln would go to schools on weekends and
speak from the podium, as if the empty chairs
were occupied by real people, because he was
told that he needed to practice speaking in

You are the greatest miracle in the
world. There is nothing that you can't
achieve in life if you believe in it and do
not waste your valuable time in
Just sit for few minutes and start counting the
blessings you already have in your life,
starting with: being alive, having eyes to look,
a nose to breathe, ears to hear, a brain to
think and the list goes on.
It is said that nothing succeeds like
success. But to be victorious, winners
must exercise some level of doggedness;
persevere in their earliest efforts when
things look most challenging.
Life is so good and beautiful. When we
look around, there is so much peace,
harmony, and beauty in nature that
should give us a happy heart to
When I pause for a moment and think about
so many people wasting their life in
unproductive activities, it gives me so much
pain that I wish I could individually sit with
that person and spend some time telling
him/her how valuable life is.
A great person has dreams
and goals and never let's
other people's negativity get
in their way of pursuing them.
Before we think there is nothing we can
achieve that is useful, let's think twice, may
be ten times, even a hundred or a thousand
times and let's always remember this:
"NEVER, NEVER, NEVER GIVE UP."
When one is determined and focused to
accomplish something worthwhile, many
obstacles and challenges will arise on the
way. As long as the goal is crystal clear and
mind is determined to get it done, nothing
can stop him or her.
A great person is a person that fails time
after time while doing their best and
never, ever quits because when they quit,
part of them dies when they quit.
Without focus, they try one thing
today and another one tomorrow
and then another one believing
they are supposed to make it with
I have never seen someone with a focus who
has not achieved the goal, although it might
come from where and when least expected.
A great person will allow nothing to
stand in his or her way of doing the
right thing by everyone and will always
admit wrong with an apology.
Do everything legitimate to
be the best at it and money
and fame will naturally be
added to it.
Most of the time, those who scatter their
efforts and resources are people who desire to
be financially free and attain fame.
All you need is one course of action you are
passionate about, with a never let go attitude,
and in no time you will achieve your desired
goal; be a tailor, an artist, a teacher, a writer
and nothing but that.
Many of us whip and defeat on why we can't,
when the only thing worth concentrating on is
why and how we can.
Man belongs to where he wants to go.
Think 'improvement' in everything you do
and think 'high standards' in everything
you do. Believe it can be done.
When you believe it is impossible, your mind
goes to work to prove why. But when you
believe and really believe that something can
be done, then your mind goes to work to help
find ways of doing it.
Believing something can be done
sets the mind in motion to find a
way of doing it. There is a way.
And, there is a better way.
Capability is the ability to better what you are
already doing. Capacity is about doing more
of what you are already doing. Improve your
capability. Increase your capacity. That's
Constantly remind yourself that you are
better than you think you are so you can do
everything in a better way than how you are
already doing it.
Also, constantly remind yourself that you are
not doing as much as you can so you can do
more of everything than what you are
In almost everything in life, from work to home to
community development, the formula for success is -
'do what you do even better' (improve the quality of
your output) and 'do more of what you do' (increase
the quantity of what you do).
Don’t give up, no matter what you do, never ever give up. It is not just a slight hope, it
is a guaranteed result! If you want different results, change your approach and use
other strategies so that you’ll get different results. You know it very well that if you
keep on doing what you’re doing right now, it is impossible for you to be successful.
Learn from your
move on. Keep
on keeping on.
