This article was written to show you 4 Lessons to be learnt from defeat or failure.
Lets be honest no one loves defeat. Being defeated can be very painful especially if its something that you gave your best . Every situation nomatter how bad it seems has atleast one hidden advantage attached to it. Nothing is completely useless because even a faulty clock shows the correct time twice in a day.
So what are the benefits or lessons that can be derived from defeat or setbacks? i can think of at least four valuable lessons failure gives us.
(1)It is a great teacher: failure or defeat serves as an eye opener that opens your eyes to the true situation of things. You discover who your true friends are and you learn how to correct your mistakes in other prevent the same thing from happening again.
(2)Defeat builds character: defeat is not a good thing but it changes your character and the way you think. At this point you either develop the habit of giving up or perseverance in fighting for your dreams.
(3)It motivates you: if you develop an attitude of optimism you will start seeing defeat merely as an invitation to try again.
(4)It helps u appreciate success: there is a saying that you dont know the value of what you have till you lose it. When failure or defeat knocks on your door you will automatically learn to value that goal when you succede.
IT IS A GREAT TEACHER….Yes,defeat is a great teacher. Every winner has played the looser. Every champion has been the runner-up.Roger Federer is considered one of the best tennis players of all time,but he doesn’t win every game,set or match. He hits bad shots into the net.He slams, serves out of bounds. He fails to place the tennis ball where he wants it dozens of times in every match. If Roger gave up in every failed shot he did he would have been a failure. Instead,he learnt from his mistakes and improved and That’s why he is a champion today. Work hard,practice,Master the fundamentals,and always try to do your best knowing that sometimes you will fail because if you have never failed then its because you have never tried to succeed. Don’t be too hard on yourself. When things don’t go as planned please dont give up,dont kill yourself ,keep on improving.
Don’t give up because you were turned down,though it hurts remember that the road to success is not always smooth . Nothing good comes easy. Once you accept that perfection is just a goal,screwing up wont be too bad to handle. Each misstep is still a step,another lesson learned,another opportunity to get it right the next time.Have a great day ahead!

Someone sent this love story to me and I felt like sharing it here on handsomebeauty. Indeed true love is blind to faults and it is hard to find .
A man married a beautiful girl. He loved her very much. One day she developed a skin disease. Slowly she started to lose her beauty. It so happened that one day her husband left for a tour.
While returning he met with an accident and lost his eyesight. However their married life continued as usual. But as days passed she lost her beauty gradually. Blind husband did not know this and there was not any difference in their married life. He continued to love her and she also loved him very much.
One day she died. Her death brought him great sorrow.
He finished all her last rites and wanted to leave that town.
A man from behind called and said, now how will you be able to walk all alone? All these days your wife used to help you.
He replied, I am not blind. I was acting, because if she knew l could see her ugliness it would have pained her more than her disease. So I pretended to be blind. She was a very good wife. I only wanted to keep her happy.
Moral:- Some times it is good for us to act blind and ignore one another’s short comings, in order to be happy
No matter how many times the teeth bite the tongue, they still stay together in one mouth. That’s the spirit of FORGIVENESS. Even though the eyes don’t see each other, they see things together, blink simultaneously and cry together. That’s UNITY.” May the Lord grant us all the spirit of forgiveness and togetherness.
1. ”Alone I can ‘Say’ but together we can ‘talk’.
2. “Alone I can ‘Enjoy’ but together we can celebrate
3. ‘Alone I can ‘Smile’ but together we can ‘Laugh’.
That’s the BEAUTY of Human Relations. We are nothing without each other
The razor blade is sharp but can’t cut a tree; the axe is strong but can’t cut the hair.
MORALS; *Everyone is important according to his/her unique purpose,Never look down on anyone unless you are admiring their shoes

A 6 years old boy was in the market with his 4 years old sister.
Suddenly the boy found that his sister was lagging behind.
He stopped and looked back. His sister was standing in front of a toy shop and was watching something with great interest.
The boy went back to her and asked, “Do you want something?” The sister pointed at the doll. The boy held her hand and like a responsible elder brother, gave that doll to her. The sister was very very happy…
The shopkeeper was watching everything and getting amused to see the matured behaviour of the boy…
Now the boy came to the counter and asked the
shopkeeper, “What is the cost of this doll, Sir? !”
The shopkeeper was a cool man and had experienced the odds of life. So he asked the boy with a lot of love & affection, “Well, What can you pay?”
The boy took out all the shells that he had collected from sea shore, from his pocket and gave them to the shopkeeper. The shopkeeper took the shells and started counting as if he were counting the currency. Then he looked at the boy. The boy asked him worriedly, “Is it less?”
The shopkeeper said, “No, No… These are more than the cost. So I will return the remaining.” Saying so, he kept only 4 shells with him and returned the remaining.
The boy, very happily kept those shells back in his pocket and went away with his sister.
A servant in that shop got very surprised watching all these. He asked his master, “Sir ! You gave away such a costly doll just for 4 shells ???”
The shopkeeper said with a smile, “Well, for us these are mere shells.
But for that boy, these shells are very precious. And at this age he does not understand what money is, but when he will grow up, he definitely will. And when he would remember that he purchased a doll with the Shells instead of Money, he will remember me and think that the world is full of Good people.
It will help him develop a positive attitude and he too in turn will feel motivated to be Good.”
Whatever emotion you infuse into the world, it will further spread. If you do good, goodness will spread. If you do bad, negativity will spread.
Realize you are a very powerful source of energy. Your good or bad will come back to you magnified. Not in the ways you want it, and probably not in the ways you can understand it. But it will come back…

Bill Gate in a restaurant
After eating, he gave $5 to the waiter as a tip.
The waiter had a strange feeling on his face after the tip.
Gates realized and asked, “what happened”
Waiter.. I’m just amazed because on the same table your daughter gave a Tip of…. $500…
And you her father, the richest man in the world only gave $5…?
Gates smiled and replied with meaningful words, “she is daughter of the world’s richest man. But I am the son of a wood cutter” …..
Moral:NEVER FORGET YOUR PAST. IT’S YOUR BEST TEACHER…..
Sometimes the things that we thing that are holding us down is all in our head . Its merely our thinking and mindset that is limiting us.
