Since centuries we are examining and judging the talent and abilities of people, entrepreneurs, and students on the basis of their grades, academic performances and successful business. Although it’s a social taboo of our society that we judge failures in awful terms and think that the one who fails can never sow the seeds of success. Despite the fact, the reality is beyond this. The one who fails is the one who learn and the more you learn the more you get the number of attempts you take the more perfection you achieve.
Though, the truth is might be bitter to swallow that the one who fails is more experienced and can pin down more possibilities to triumph over than the one who never fails. Because the one who conquer life challenges bravely, learn from their mistakes and can find manifold of tricks or ways to flourish their purposes.

Let’s give a read and get inspiration from some of the successful personalities and their failed attempts.
In the period of her very young age, life demonstrated the darkest side of the world to Oprah, she got molested in her teenage and the society refused to accept the teenage girl with her blemish. But Oprah didn’t lose hope and turned all challenges into opportunities.

Oprah chose to turn her troubles into the occasions and initiated the idea of a talk show where she focused on literature, self-development, and mysticism. Oprah got criticized inadequately for discussing freely social controversies and empowering people enough to confess the flaws of society.
