Nobody in the world loves to taste or be tagged ‘ unsuccessful’ in work or love or relationships in general.
Yet, everybody had been unsuccessful at some point or other in one’s life journey.
These inspiring and motivating unsuccessful quotes and sayings give us the courage and inner resilience to overcome failure and not get dejected forever.
What makes a person successful vs. Unsuccessful?
Thomas Alva Edison was well known for facing repeated failures in his experiments. Before he invented the light bulb, it is believed he has been unsuccessful with 1000 plus attempts.
In an interview, Edison was asked to share his experience of how he felt inwardly when he was repeatedly facing failures.
Edison wisely replied, I didn’t see those failed attempts as a failure at all, but how the invention of the light bulb was the product of 1000 experiments.
Deep and beautiful.
That’s how our approach to life’s goals needs to be.
Not taking tension or pressure because of the fear of failure but working relentlessly towards one’s passion and inner calling.
Do being unsuccessful make you stronger?
It depends on how we are willing to define the word ‘ unsuccessful.’
A failure, at least, would have taught us what not to repeat next time. But since we attach the word ‘ success’ so much to our self-worth, we cannot digest genuine defeats.
Do not take success and social appreciation or validation so seriously that the very thought of defeat haunts you psychologically.
Nobody learns without a trial and error approach.
Also, everybody is well defined within the universal game of cause and effect. So, one can never be sure of 100% success or 100% failure.
But giving the best shot with life and blood is always in one’s hand.
Let this quote echo in your heart whenever you are afraid of making risky decisions.
‘Behind every successful man, there’s a lot of unsuccessful years.’ – Bob Brown.
We hope these top and powerful unsuccessful quotes and sayings help us gain clarity in raising the above failures in love, relationships, friendship, and work profile.
