Stories Of Success From Failure

15 replies
Success has its ironic twist. To achieve most success, one must deal with the pain of many failures. Of course that is not an issue to successful people. Just an obstacle jump over as the progress in life. What about before it was so natural to overcome failures?

I would like the stories of some warriors

I see many people posting here with respectable comments, and very empowering threads here. Some of you are discovering your path, and some of you have already achieved great success. What better place to hear from then here.

I started an article which I'm looking to evolve into many sub pages with successful people with their stories of failure. Describing what obstacles you had to overcome, and even failures that lead to your success.

Anybody that can tell a story of failure to success, briefly explain it here

If your story seems fitting, I will contact you about setting up your information, story, and current success details on my website.

      Wow! I am so envious. I've been traveling for a long time now and I considered myself as an adventurer. I've been thinking of blogging and making money out of it. I still want to give it a try even if I am not a good writer.

    Cool Ryan, I was hoping you would jump in on this one.
    I read your story a while ago, and I believe you are a great example. I'll message you shortly with more info.

    After a morning of thinking about this, I have came up with another idea to go along with this. You can almost call it a contest.

    I am writing an article associated with the first. It will be "Best Failure To Success Stories" and whoever writes the best story will be placed on this page. The most informative and inspirational story will be first on this list.

    hello.

    I think i have over shared my story . but this we i am no longer broke and ..paying off my debts ..and getting my afairs in order to get on a plane in the next 2-3 week with enough to live in a tropical country comfortable for 3 month and get an income going to support me permanently .

    if things work out with the income and my lady friend we may buy some land and build a small comfy house ..and we both want to have a nice garden with chickens for eggs .

    so the tone of my posts will change to what i am doing ..instead of what i want to do

    I love reading about how people struggled through the hard times to eventually come out on top. I am still at the first phase so reading about others successes may motivate me to keep plugging away at this.

      That is awesome and exactly what I hope to achieve for myself and others. I'll work my hardest to compile as much I can.


      Odah - that is really cool to hear. Sounds real exciting too!
      So what I am hearing sounds like the fine transition from failure to success. Inspiring in itself! Keep us updated on this transitional move you are making, and how well you settle in to this new scene. I'll P.M you with a few questions shortly.

      Dain - Inspirational stories is where movies are made. I would like me an acting part in that one! What was your biggest failure? Or hardest obstacle to overcome?


      It is amazing how sometimes we can feed off each others past troubles. We can relate, and sometimes realize that each of our own problems can easily be accomplished, as did many other people.

      Thanks!
      Keep them coming!

        I assure you, you wouldn't want a part in it.

    every human has had hard times ..think about President Obama as this point he needs a disclaimer speech of" any action i take on this is probably going to be made out to be a blunder so fk it i am going golfing "

    at this point human nature ..means it take a large amount of suffering and pain..to make realativly minor changes in life

    most people treat the symptoms of problems to bring them down to tolerable levels they can cope with.

    in my case with all the issues i had i was a master at coping and going numb without and chemicle help..so the last five years was pretty damn torturous ..but every problem has had to be addressed by trying to dig down and get to the cause .

    one of these has been the increasing clearity of how i need to live in an environment where it is warm all year ..while i have lived most of my life where it is cool or cold most of the year .

    and that is one of like a hunred things i have figured out about me


    the goal is not to make changes to deal with problem.. but to move from good to better to best and not need suffeing and pain to make changes ..at least that is my goal

    because i do not want to put any energy into remembering the ..numerous failures ..

    at this point to others i would not look like a success ..but that is the criticle thing .

    i spent to much time and energy trying to fix myself to try and look normal to other people .

    there was no real change until i gave uo trying to fix myself.. and then identifying the way i was meant to work and the way i needed to live ..o be health and happy..and once i did that the options to build wealth .. came into view .

    i was failing when i was trying to look normal or chase some commonly heald view of success or being rich .

    i know how i want to live my life and there are many ways i can earn money to live the way i want while living the way i want ..

    when i write the book about it or put up the you tube documentry ..i will give you a better answer

    anyway normal people hate their job..and are medicated ..no reason to be normal

    Losing pride can be a hard one I hear.
    Fortunately for myself I don't feel I have had that issue, but surely tough to overcome. I can only imagine it may involve some remapping of who you are, and what you live for or what is important to you.

    I lived most of my life living like a roller coaster. Motivated and then not, proud of work, then not, on and on and on. It really pushed me into a dark place and my work was plummeting. Then I learned about living mindfully and it changed my life. Now I live with peace, joy and confidence and I am more successful than ever!

      Thanks for sharing this. It is an important message for people to hear. You may be able to back me up when I say this. In order to achieve success, you first have to feel successful about what you are doing.

      Sounds like a catch, and for most people it is. How can you obtain success if you don't keep yourself going? How do you keep yourself going without motivation? Finally, How do you stay motivated without feeling successful in what you are going through with?

      You have to know your going to be successful, no matter what! Why? Because your going to push through and achieve it anyways!

      That was my life as well, It took me 2 years of failure to see success.

      It's so important to understand that you need to fail in order to succeed, I believe many people are so afraid of failure that they give up trying to be successful altogether.
