I Need Both: SUCCESS and $UCCE$$

"Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success." ~ Napoleon Hill

Who won't yearn for success? I yearn for success. Do you yearn for success? Is the question in which every one of us will have evidently the common, an instant answer; a big 'YES'. Am I sure? Yes, I am fairly and squarely sure. Are you sure? I am sure, you are. All of us are the success-hungry being, wishing every moment of our life to be successful and fruitful but this bittersweet truth is we rarely get to taste the gist of success. Over and above, we lack the basic values, the very lifeblood of success and that's why we are always behind dreamed dreams and themes of our life.

My substantive point here is, we expect a rose without thorns, a harvest without blisters, a rainbow without rain, a better without bitter, a flower without shower, and so on. Okay, let me structure my brainwaves through A.P. Gouthey's conception; "To get profit without risk, experience without danger, and reward without work, is as impossible as it is to live without being born." Now you got my mind. Can we live without being born? Can we succeed without defeat? We live after we are born. We succeed after overcoming temporary defeats.

Many of us do not really realize about the defeat we have to suffer while heading ahead. The easiest thing we lazily do is, we give up in our first attempt when the temporary defeat challenges us. This is the bold reason that differentiates a success from failure, a winner from loser, a riches from poverty and a greatness from worthlessness.

We must wake up and make up with our minds to expect defeat and beating as our usual story that will measure the level of optimism and enthusiasm in us. The best thought we must think is, "Tough times never last but tough people do," as entitled by Robert H Schuller in one of his awe-inspiring books. Isn't it true? Defeats are temporary, they last only for an hour and by the time, they get bored and leave you. They are the stepping stones to better you because, "Behind every fear door, there lies a gorgeous gift," as written by Robin Sharma. I mean, behind every defeat there is a golden goose laying golden eggs. Don't you love to own that goose? Then accept defeat and let it run through you, you know it won't be able to stir even a single hair of yours. Trust me.

We don't have do anything to learn the story and truth of success. Nature provides us the most irreproachable and impeccable lesson to learn and that's why Albert Einstein said; "Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." As aforementioned about rain and rainbow. Here during the formation of rainbow, it teaches us about success after undesirable and success after cooperation. It is necessary to have rain and sun for rainbow. Just contemplate how the sun and rain cooperate to give a splendid rainbow of beauty. When sun and rain can cooperate, don't you feel that you got to cooperate with yourself? Cooperation with self is the first step for success or else you won't be able to cooperate with success and others.

I presume that we need to cooperate with success. To cooperate with success, we got to accept the harshness of its bodyguards, temporary defeats. Remember, behind every successful story there lies an equal or greater story of hardships and headaches.

The pages and chapters of history are cloaked in success due to failure, failure that gave birth to success. Indeed, success and failure are just like two faces of a coin without which one can't exist without other. God's honest truth is all who succeed in life journey with a nasty start and overcome many innumerable depressing and heartbreaking obstacles before they arrive at the golden land of success.

Helen Keller became deaf, dumb and blind at her very early age. Despite her greatest misfortune, she had been able to achieve her earth-shattering and epoch-making success and her name is clearly, boldly written in the history of greatness. Charles Dickens, the tragedy of whose first love penetrated the depth of his heart became one of the finest writers. Robert Burns, who was an illiterate wove the words into aesthetic poetry despite he was cursed by poverty. Thomas Alva Edison one of the dynamic inventors this world has ever produced, failed more than ten thousand times before he was able to prove his genius.

One of the major causes of our failure is we tend to get influence by the discouragement of others we live with. Whenever we climb two steps higher, we are pulled a step lower purely by the words of others. We have got to do nothing with what others have to say about us because we are living our own life and exercising our own journey. When they encourage us feel good and when they emasculate you, just fool it intelligently in David Brinkley's pre-eminent wisdom; "A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him."
Remember, you know yourself better than any of the world's beings. Just have faith and trust in your god-given abilities and aptitudes. Believe in yourself. Trust yourself. Move forward with enthusiasm and optimism and determination. Listen to your inner soul and turn deaf to what others say.

You are a genius. You are a great being who has the power to do everything you desire. You are the image of God. Your presence is all-important, this world needs you in abundance for there is never a better you than you.

So someday when you realize that you belong to geniuses, you have to believe that you can do great things and make this world a better place to live. 


  1. Above all the traits mentioned, you have to make sure that your conscience is clear! It isn't that easy and you will understand when you step into the real world! ;)

    However, it's nice post Ugyen! :) Hope you had a great weekend! Take care! ^^

  2. Wow...awesome bro!!!!!! it is really inspiring and motivating. You are right. Success never comes so easily and also it will never come to those who just bum around. Every one must toil and perspire a lot before we get to the golden abode of success. Success doesn't mean accomplishing greatness or great things without facing any obstruction or failure. In fact success consists of" going from failure to failure without the loss of enthusiasm" as said by Winston Churchill. He also said," Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It's the courage to continue that counts." Thank you bro for sharing such inspiring post..keep sharing....takcr.
