If you Think you have Failed

What is Failure to a person depends on their thoughts.

Many successful people are familiar with failure as they take them on as lessons to be learned in one's life.   You will not know success if you don't know what failure is.  The failure you faced are experience for you so that you can learn from each lessons that life is trying to teach you and it broadens your knowledge and each step of failure will mold you into a better and successful person.

The next time that you think that you have failed and feel like giving up, then think of Abraham Lincoln.
