However, before one can determine the definition of success, one must first understand or grasp the meaning of failure. Like how the colour white cannot be understood without knowing what the colour black is. Neither can you understand the feeling of love without knowing the feeling of fear. Light cannot exist or be fully understood without its counterpart, darkness. In the journey of life, we will experience the duality.
With that understanding, I strongly believe that failure is the brick-and-mortar that builds and defines success. In other words, failures bring us one step closer to
winning the game of life – by experiencing the feeling of what success really is. That said, failure in life is expected, however, remember that it will always pave the way to success.
Meanwhile, do you know that happiness and success go hand-in-hand? This is because happiness is success. In life, what we are seeking are both happiness and contentment, ultimately leading to peace and harmony.
But because of the circumstances and the worldly consciousness that we are going through, we have lost touch of ourselves and are drawn into the materialistic world. We have been pre-conditioned to perceive success when we obtain what we desire (Material, Relationships, Money) through hard work and that is when we can truly find happiness and contentment.
