“Success is not final; failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”-Winston S. Churchill.
People are really good at judging others but they do not know the hurdles and difficulties one might have faced to reach that particular goal. Success does not come towards you, it’s you who put steps towards success. Success is spending the majority of your time focused on your work and tasks that maximize your potential to help people in a meaningful way while providing freedom, lifestyle, and experiences that you desire. If one is not successful, he tries again and again because they are willing to achieve it and learn from the mistakes they make along the way, which in the long run does lead them to success.
