Why Failing to do Something Should be Least of your Worries

failure to success

Do you know why we fail? We are afraid to fight for ourselves. “Failure to success” is considered perhaps one of the most miserable things that can happen to someone. When we fail, we resist to try again. We lack the motivation to work hard for our dreams and talents. When others call us a failure we believe in them instead of believing in our selves. And we erase ourselves from the bigger picture.

There are two types of failures. When the world thinks you are a failure, in this case you aren’t. You are just different. The other type is when you think you are a failure; in this case, you are because you are accepting others’ opinion about yourself.

failure to success

There is one more reason, we are lazy. We want to bake the most delicious, sweet and creamy cake without being even being ready to struggle for learning its recipe. We want to paint a picture like Picasso’s  without trying to paint. And when we don’t have it, we quit and live the rest of our lives saying, I am a complete failure to success.

‘’It is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you fail by default.’’ –J.K.Rowling

failure to success

Jack Ma, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Walt Disney, and Stephen King come from the list of the world most successful people from whom we inspire. They all were rejected or failed brutally in their own times. All of these great inspirations have two things in common. They never stopped and they never doubted their abilities. In other words, they tried again and again until they succeeded because they knew they have something different and wonderful in their plates to offer. They weren’t the biggest failures because they sacrificed everything for their talents, passions and ideas and still the world didn’t recognize them. They were the biggest failures until they were courageous enough to belief in themselves that they were being misjudged, they were the ultimate failures until they chose to try again .Do you know what the famous Michael  Jordan’s mother told him after he was being dropped out from the basketball team for being  too short,

‘’The only thing you can do now is, practice more and make them believe that they have made a mistake.’’

Today we will discuss some of the major failures from the list of our inspirations,

Walt Disney (Failure to Success):

failure to success

We all know that Walt Disney was fired from a newspaper because his ideas were ordinary and not original. After he got fired he started a small company, Laugh O Grams, it went bankrupted. His first cartoon character which he introduced was, Micky Mouse, but it didn’t just got selected in the first place. It was initially rejected by a studio because they thought a giant mouse could scare women. His short film, three pigs, faced the same thing. When they were on aired it changed the whole concept of animation. Micky mouse was the first animated character with voice; he was the first talking cartoon. His first animated movie was, Snow -white and the 7 dwarfs. The money he earned from it founded Walt Disney Studio. There he created Pinocchio and Fantasia. He died in 1966 but his legacy remained alive. Walt Disney Studio has given us some of the very amazing stories like, Toy Story, Wrack it Ralph, Meet the Robinsons, Frozen, Brave, Cinderella and a lot more.

Just erase the word excuse from your dictionary:

Poverty or lack of resources is not an excuse. Rory John Gates is the son of Bill Gates. We know him because he is the son of Bill Gates. We don’t say that Bill Gate is the father of Rory Gates. Children of great and successful people rarely succeed. They don’t need extra efforts to achieve something. So no one knows them without reference. Great people are self-made. They steal the opportunities instead of waiting for them. They don’t wait for miracles to happen. They live their lives as a living miracle.


failure to success

J.K. Rowling used to clean the church with her sister when she was young. Her father left them and her mother died due to illness. She applied in Oxford University but couldn’t get admission. She was very young when she got married then divorced and then left alone with a baby. She suffered from depression but her depression created the famous creatures ‘’Dementors’’. She took her, ’’Harry Potter and the philosopher’’ to 12 publishers but it got rejected .Every time she failed she tried again. If you are a 90’’s kid imagine your childhood if she didn’t went to the 13th publisher. (Failure to success)

11 Qualities That All Admirable Leaders Have

Even age doesn’t matter:

failure to success

KFC was founded by Colonel Harland Sanders. He was above 60 when he invested his retirement money on introducing his secret fried chicken recipe to different authorities. His recipe was rejected 1009 times. He too believed in himself and never stopped to try again. So if you are in you 40’s, 50’s or 60’s and thinking of quitting for your passion because the rest of the world thinks that you are a failure. Please don’t and try again. Sanders’ story is a reminder for you.

Grades never decide how good you are:

failure to success

Steven Spielberg is the legendary Hollywood director. He wanted to study film making in the University of Southern California. But got rejected three times because of low grades. The he started working in universal pictures. After that he gave us blockbusters like Jurassic park, E.T.(Extra-terrestrial) and if today you couldn’t do well in your test or you don’t have good GPA and you know that your grades does not represent your knowledge. Just remember, good grades were never the goal, knowledge is and it will pay off in the right time. You out there reading this write up, if you are someone who is deciding to quit because of rejections and is tired to try again, I want you to know, we chose to write on this topic today because we want you to know, you are not a failure unless you think you are, don’t put your amazing stunning ideas in the thrash of your memory, the world would be very different without Harry Potter, Cinderella and of course KFC burgers. Don’t read it because you think you are a failure, read it because believe that you different.

But, what do you believe in?

So wherever you are and no matter how many times the world has told you that you are ordinary, prove them wrong. If you believe you have some extra talents that the world is unknown to, don’t let other’s opinions impose on you, you are different and they are ordinary and can’t understand your ideas, let the world know how extra ordinary you are, bring your sparkle to the light, refine it and make it shine the brightest. BECAUSE FAILURE IS JUST THE BEGINNING.

‘’Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I will try again tomorrow.’’ -Mary Anne Radmacher

Here Are 13 False Pregnancy Myths to Help All Mothers-to-Be

There are many myths and misconceptions attached to pregnancy. Here are some of the most commonly believed in myths and reasons why they are not true:

1. Wide Hips Can Make Childbirth Easier:

When people talk about wide hips in the context of childbirth they are usually referring to a wider ilium. However, the distance between the iliac crests and the size of the birth canal are totally unrelated. During childbirth, it is the hole in the middle of the pelvic bone that counts and it can be big or small irrelevant of the size of the hips.

2. The Size And Shape Of The Belly Can Tell Whether It’s A Boy Or A Girl:

Most people try to guess the gender of the baby by looking at the shape of a pregnant woman’s belly. Although it will make things quite easier if it were true but it is not. The size and shape of the belly are affected by the size of the fetus and its position in the womb.

3. Frequent Ultrasounds Are Unsafe For The Baby:

There is no scientific backing to the myth that getting an ultrasound could harm a mother or her unborn child. People often confuse ultrasound with radiation. Ultrasound is just high-frequency sound waves which produce an image on the screen after bouncing off of the fetus and are safe.

4. It’s Bad For The Baby To Lie On Your Stomach:

The baby is well protected inside the muscular uterus and lying on the stomach would not harm it, as long as it feels comfortable.

5. Running While Pregnant Is Bad:Image result for pregnant woman running shutterstock

Becoming pregnant does not mean you should give up running. As long as you have a safe pregnancy and your doctor gives you a go ahead, it is completely fine for you to continue running.

6. Morning Sickness Only Happens In The Morning And During The First Trimester:Image result for morning sickness shutterstock

Majority of the pregnant women suffering from nausea but only a small percentage of it suffer it in the morning. It can be an all day thing and while for most women it does end after the first trimester for some it can go on until the time of delivery.

7. Lifting Your Arms Above Your Head Could Strangle The Baby:Image result

Lifting your arms around your head cannot cause the umbilical cord to wrap around your baby’s neck. In fact, none of your movements can have an effect on the position of the umbilical cord and a lot of babies are born with the umbilical cord wound around their neck and is easily removed by the doctor.

8. You Would Have To Get Rid Of Your Cat:

Cats can be the carrier of a rare birth defect causing disease called toxoplasmosis. However, this does not mean you have to say goodbye to your pet as soon as you get pregnant. It is recommended to avoid cleaning the litter box and if you do not have anyone to do it for you wear gloves while doing it and immediately wash your hands afterwards.

9. Pregnancy Is The Best Time Of The Life For All Women:

The general conception goes round that being pregnant is the happiest time in a woman’s life. In reality, many pregnant can feel stressed, afraid and general feelings of unhappiness. A small percentage of women even suffer from symptoms of depression. This can happen due to the changing hormones in a woman’s body which ultimately affect the brain and mood center. If a woman experiences depressive symptoms it should be treated as it can have adverse effects on the health of the mother and baby.

10. It Is Okay To Drink Once In A While:

When you drink alcohol while pregnant, so does your baby as it can pass freely through the placenta. This can increase the baby being born with some physical or mental birth defect. While it is hard to determine the safe amount of alcohol that can be consumed without harming the baby it is best to stay away from alcohol altogether during the course of pregnancy.

11. You Lose All Your Pregnancy Weight During The Delivery:

The extra pregnancy weight gain is due to the amalgamation of the weight of the baby, placenta, breasts, the increased volumes of blood and body fluid in the body and some extra fat. While the weight of the baby, placenta and amniotic fluid is immediately lost after the delivery, it takes a couple of weeks to lose the weight gained by fluid and also fat depending on how much you gained.

12. A C-section Is The Easy Way Out:Image result

When it comes to delivery there is no easy way out. Many pregnant women believe that a C-section is the less painful and safer way of delivery. However, in reality, a c section could be pretty painful as well the only difference is you feel the pain after the baby had been born, unlike the vaginal birth. It can also pose complications later and is only recommended by doctors when the benefits outweigh the dangers.

13. The Fetus Is Unaffected By The Outside Events:

For a long time, it was believed that babies are born oblivious to their outside environment. In truth, babies can hear sounds and recognize their mother’s voice while inside the womb. They are also able to detect light and taste the food by licking the placental wall.
