Every last chance has a clue for new beginning!

By Neeraj Mishra|Updated : April 1st, 2016

Every single day comes up with a new hope and opportunity in our life. It’s our perspective how we make out the things.  There is a thought, I have experienced it many times and I think it’s appropriate for everyone.

What ever happens, 

happens for good!



Failure is never the end of the life... 

The truth is, failure happens to everyone.

The only thing that separates people who succeed from those who don’t is a proper understanding of the power of failure. Success requires that you learn from mistakes and missteps along the way rather than falling into despair and giving up.

If you fail, Never give up because

F.A.I.L.  means “First Attempt in Learning”

End is not the end, In fact

E.N.D. means “Effort is never Dies”

If you get No as an answer remember

N.O.  means “Next Opportunity”

So, it’s your first attempt in learning. Never give up! Life is a great teacher. It gives you many lessons to walk on the path of success. The lessons you can learn from life, can’t be learn from any book. Don’t lose your Faith. Someday will be your day.

Recently, I have received a message from someone. I want to share it with you.

“Long time ago, a schoolboy came home and gave a paper to his mother. He told her my teacher gave this paper to me and told me to only give it to my mother.

His mother’s eyes were tearful but she read the letter out loud to her child as,

“Your son is a genius.

This school is too small for him and

doesn’t have enough good teachers for training him.

Please teach him yourself.

After many years, the child grown up and came in light as one of the greatest inventors of the century. His mother’s word came true. One day he was looking through the old drawer and he found a piece of paper. He took it and opened it up. On this paper was written

“Your son is mentally ill.

We won’t let him come to school anymore.”

This child was none other than Thomas Edison”. In his failure, his mother saw a light of hope and trust. And one day his mother’s word became true.

Not everyone who’s on top today got there with success after success. More often than not, those who history best remembers were faced with numerous obstacles that forced them to work harder and show more determination than others.

Also here we are sharing short story of some other famous people, which will surely motivate you in moving ahead in your life. Next time when you’re feeling down about your failures in your career, keep these famous people in mind and remind yourself that sometimes failure is just the first step towards success.

1. Nelson Mandela The man who spent 27 years in Jail for fulfilling his commitment.

In 1964, Mandela was sentenced to imprisonment for 27 years, out of which 18 years were spent in a brutal facility on the Robben Island. Mandela refused an offer of conditional release in 1985 in return for his denouncing the violence and armed movement of the African National Congress. He remained in prison till 1990 and was released due to pressure created by the people of South Africa and due to international outcry as well.


In 1994, South Africa held its first election in which both blacks and whites participated. The African National Congress won the majority and Nelson Mandela became the country’s first black President.

2. Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam - The most popular President in India’s history - From the son of a boat-maker to the President of India.

Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, the most popular President in India’s history, was born on 15 October 1931 in a small coastal town in what is now Tamil Nadu. His father Jainulabdeen was a boat-maker at Rameshwaram, then a sleepy pilgrim town by the sea, in Tamil Nadu. Since money was limited in the poor Tamil Muslim household, Kalam distributed newspapers as a boy.

Abdul Kalam

“My enthusiasm knew no bounds. I was only eight, but I was going to contribute in a meaningful way to the household income! However, my new job had to be fitted into my regular routine,” he recalled in his 2013 autobiography My Journey.

From the son of a boat-maker to the President of India, was an incredible journey for Kalam. He summed up this journey, which is continuing even after he left the office of the President, in his own modest words: “I will not be presumptuous enough to say that my life can be a model for anybody; but some poor child living in an obscure place in an underprivileged social setting may find a little solace in the way my destiny has been shaped.”

3. Winston Churchill: This Nobel Prize-winning, twice-elected Prime Minster of the United Kingdom wasn’t always as well regarded as he is today. Churchill struggled in school and failed the sixth grade. After school he faced many years of political failures, as he was defeated in every election for public office until he finally became the Prime Minister at the ripe old age of 62.


4. Isaac Newton: Newton was undoubtedly a genius when it came to math, but he had some failings early on. He never did particularly well in school and when put in charge of running the family farm, he failed miserably, so poorly in fact that an uncle took charge and sent him off to Cambridge where he finally blossomed into the scholar we know today.


5. J. K. Rowling: Rowling may be rolling in a lot of Harry Potter dough today, but before she published the series of novels she was nearly penniless, severely depressed, divorced, trying to raise a child on her own while attending school and writing a novel. Rowling went from depending on welfare to survive to being one of the richest women in the world in a span of only five years through her hard work and determination.


The common sense point here is simple.  Successful people commit to taking personal responsibility for their career success.  They set high goals and do whatever it takes to achieve them.  They also react positively to the people and events in their lives – especially the negative people and events.

In this post, we told the stories of some well-known people who ended up being wildly successful and well known.  Let them be an example for you the next time you feel like giving up. So, lighten up candle of your hope again and start a new beginning.  It is never be a last chance.

6. Bill Gates : Before Microsoft was born, Bill Gates suffered failure in business. Known today to be one of the wealthiest men in the world.


His first business was indeed a failure.Although Gates failed at his first business, it didn’t discourage him from trying again. He didn’t want to give up because the sheer notion of business intrigued him. He was cleverly able to put together a company that revolutionized the personal computing marketplace. And we all know just how successful that was for him.

Let go of yesterday.

Let today be a new beginning and be the best that you can,

and you'll get to where God wants you to be.
