Along with age comes invaluable experience. Time is a great teacher, so are successes and failures. Nothing goes waste; everything that we go through, every occurrence and every incident leaves a lesson in its wake. It is this experience that builds in us an ability to recognize good friends from opportune or fair weather ones, a knack to distinguish right from wrong, patience to take sorrows in our stride and so on. And it is this that also finally makes us what we are. We should learn to enjoy our new self; we’ve earned it. ~Latika Teotia
If you wait for circumstances to become better you may have to wait for a very long time. Catch the bull of opportunity by the horns and make the most of it. Don’t just be an onlooker or a passive person, be a doer. Opportunities come knocking for all, some seize the moment while others wait twiddling their thumbs not knowing what to do. That is the difference between success and failure; between hope and despair. Those that fail are the ones who procrastinate and the successful ones have been quick on taking decisions and actions. Be a doer not a bystander or an onlooker. Act, don’t procrastinate. ~Latika Teotia
Failures are stepping stones to success. Rejections, negative responses, disappointments, rebuffs and so on should NOT shake your confidence. As we all know you are not down unless you decide not to get up. So keep on keeping on and shine. ~Latika Teotia
Never treat failure as final and don’t think that it’s the end of the road. Take lessons from it and learn. Failure is also a step towards success- provided you take it in the right spirit. Instead of brooding over what’s happened and losing sleep as well as peace of mind, learn to rise and come out even better.
You will have setbacks; that’s a part of life. It could be death of a close one, a mishap, a rejection, a breakup and so on; these are mere distraction or interruptions nothing more. Take them as just a small deviation from your chosen path; and don’t give up or give in.
This world is replete with examples of people who have risen from repeated failures or started very late in life. The one thing that is common in all such cases is, they had the desire to succeed and just refused to give up or give in. So have the will to rise and the courage to face all situations. ~Latika Teotia
Believe in yourself; believe that you are capable, you are strong and that you are never ever going to give up. Be positive no matter what. Let not any self doubt ruin your personality. Have implicit as well as unshakeable faith in yourself and success will always be yours. ~Latika Teotia
Cheer those passing through tough times but trying to smile all the same. Encourage them to keep trying and not to give in or give up. Tell them it’s not over until YOU say it’s over. Appreciate their positivity; tell them that you are proud of them and that they deserve to succeed. ~Latika Teotia
You are who you are because of your experience. Every little thing that happens to you, whether success, failure, good or bad is a stepping stone in making you who you ultimately become. Therefore, accept each experience as it is. While success will teach you the value of hard work, failure will give you invaluable insights into where you went wrong. The people you meet too affect your life. If someone gives you love, repay them in whatever way you can; hold such people close to your heart and don’t let go of them. Such people teach you the value of love and also guide you to open out and love others. On the other hand if someone hurts you or breaks your very heart, humiliates you or makes you feel small, forgive them and move on. Such people have just taught you an invaluable lesson too. Use that experience and walk with your eyes open so that you don’t commit the same mistake twice/ again. Don’t worry you aren’t the only one with a hurt or a broken heart, everyone’s been through a similar experience sometime or the other. ~Latika Teotia
It’s HOW you played the game that matters, not whether you won or lost. Be reassured that when the applause dies down and the dust has settled you will be proud of having played your part well. ~Latika Teotia
Life doesn’t come to a standstill just because YOU have failed. Success and failure are an integral part of life, so, if confronted with failure don’t freeze and go into mental paralysis. Get up and get going- that’s the right way, the way forward. ~Latika Teotia
