“The baby elephant had been born into this world within a single moment. Unable to stand up as fast and it had hit the ground. Unaware of what is going on around it yet some how instinctively she tries to rise again. One time and she fails face first into the sand. Two time’s and her trunk gets in the way of the left front foot to trip her up yet again. Third time’s a charm she is on her feet! It’s okay to fail and the baby notices that with the next step. She trips herself with her trunk again. Confused, angered and disappointed she will prevail.
No one was there to teach her to walk. She had to learn on her own. All day she had practiced the motion of standing up and yet again falling down. One foot in front of the other. One step at a time. It was up to her to figure it out or else the natural world would have taken it’s procedure.
Needless to say the joy and glee that had come within a few days. She was not only able to walk on her own but even started the trials of being able to run. Oh and we forgot to mention she can pick the most bottom leaves of the nearest tree to feed herself as well.
Life is like the baby elephant trying to survive. Trial and error, but with determination success is inevitable.“
It’s Okay To Fail
Without failure there can be no success in sight. The fear of not succeeding will halt all success. If no risk should be taken then you would never know where to go next or if the ability to complete any task were within you. To fail is not so much of a negative but rather a positive ability that we have in life. With each bump of the head and scratch on the knee, with the right attention being paid, could be a potential lesson learned.
The greatest men and woman of the world have fallen thousands of times. Not just once or twice. Success has a funny way to make you believe that you are not good enough. Harness the inner determination and self to understand that anything is tangible. You can reach for the moon and be fishing among the stars.
Try your best and give it your all, each and every time. Let no one determine your future and hold onto the ambition that is within. Success will find it’s way upon your lap.

Never allow anyone to tell you that you can not do something. Anything is possible with the right amount of time, ambition and determination.
You are great, you can do it and you will succeed. With a little bit of risk and ambition anything is possible.
