Any person who goes through life without experiencing failure is the ultimate failure in life.Why?Because if a person has never failed,they have never attempted to achieve or accomplish extraordinary goals.They have not reached for excellence and have stayed safely within the realm of mediocrity.
Success is not defined by or built upon the absence of failure.Rather,success is felt only when failure is accepted as part of the process and is overcome.An athlete becomes an outstanding success when they set new records.Most highly successful entrepreneurs fail multiple times in the process of setting up businesses.
My colleague was excited to tell us yesterday that her son took his first step,stumble and fell.A child learning to walk falls down many times before taking those successful first steps,then stumbles and falls again and again before being able to walk,and then run.The body needs to learn the failure before it can know the success.
Without the willingness to experience yet another failure,no child would ever walk.Without the willingness to experience failure,no great deed would ever get done,no new thing would ever be accomplished,nothing new would ever be learned.
Those who risk the most,succeed the most. Failure is meant to be an encourager to success; when you fail, the silent words being communicated is,"Try harder".In other words,embrace failure when it comes,don't allow it to keep you down...it demonstrates that you are on your way to success.When u give up then you are failure.
Failure is an event not a person.

New vacuum cleaner salesman knocked on the door on the first house of the street.A tall lady answered the door.Before she could speak,the enthusiastic salesman barged into the living room and opened a big black plastic bag and poured all the cow droppings onto the carpet.
"Madam,if I could not clean this up with the use of this new powerful vacuum cleaner,I will EAT all this s...!"exclaimed the eager salesman."Do you need chili sauce or ketchup with that?"asked the lady.
The bewildered salesman asked, " Why, madam?"
"There's no electricity in the house..." said the lady

A wealthy Urhobo man decided to go on a safari in one of the games reserves.He took his faithful pet Waffi dog along for company.One day the dog starts chasing butterflies and before long he discovers that he is lost.So,wandering about he notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction with the obvious intention of having lunch.The dog thinks,"Boy, dis na wahala."Then he noticed some bones on the ground close by,and immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat.
Just as the leopard is about to leap,the dog exclaims loudly,"Man,that leopard sweet o,I wonder where I fit get more around here?"Hearing this the leopard halts his attack in mid stride,as a look of terror comes over him,and slinks away into the trees."Chei",says the leopard."That was close.That dog nearly chop me.Meanwhile,a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree,figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the leopard.So,off he goes.But the dog saw him heading after the leopard with great speed,and figured that something must be up.The monkey soon catches up with the leopard,spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the leopard.
The cat is furious at being made a fool of and says,"Here monkey,climb my back make you see wetin I go do that wayo dog."Now the dog sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back,and thinks,"Wetin man go do now?"But instead of running,the dog sits down with his back to his attackers pretending he hasn't seen them yet.And just when they get close enough to hear,the dog says,"wey this monkey sef.you no fit ever trust am,30 mins don pass since I send am make him go bring another leopard and he still never come back!!"

If you kiss her, you are not a gentleman
If you don't, you are not a man
If you praise her, she thinks you are lying
If you don't, you are good for nothing
If you agree to all her likes, she is abusing
If you don't, you are not understanding
If you make romance, you are an 'experienced man'
If you don't you are half a man
If you visit her too often, she thinks it is boring
If you don't, she accuses you of double crossing
If you are well dressed, she says you are a playboy
If you don't, you are a dull boy
If you are jealous, she says it's bad
If you don't , she thinks you do not love her
If you attempt a romance, she says you didn't respect her
If you don't, she thinks you do not like her
If you are a minute late, she complains it's hard to wait
If she is late, she says that's a girl's way
If you visit another, she accuses you of being a heel
If she is visited by another, 'oh it's natural, we are girls'
If you kiss her once in a while, she professes you are cold
If you kiss her too many, she yells that you are taking advantage
If you fail to help her in crossing the street, you lack ethics
If you do, she thinks it's just one of the man's tactics
If you stare at other, she accuses you of flirting
If she is stared by others, she says that they are just admiring
If you talk, she wants you to listen
If you listen, she wants you to talk
Oh God! you created those creature called "WOMAN'
So simple, yet so complex
So weak, yet so powerful
So confusing, yet so desirable
"O LORD, tell me what to do. AMEN"
