Expectation is a strong belief that something will happen or be the case. Now, what has been/could be your expectation? Could it be fame or obscruity, greatness or commonness, riches or poverty, grace or disgrace, mess or mercy, success or failure? Whatever/however, in case you don't know, the scripture says that your expectations shall not be cut off/denied, scripture reference (Proverbs chapter 24 :14, Proverbs chapter 23 : 18). Although, your expectation may be delayed, but it will be delayed just for a while. Yes, all your godly/earnest/positive expectations will definitely/surely materialize, it's a matter of time and provided you are/will be patient enough with God.
Failure doesn't just form an important part of life's learning. But inadvertently, it becomes one's/your preparation for success. Besides, you will end up learning more about life through failure than through success.
Failure is never strange to human race, rather, it is and it has been the part of life of great men and heroes of the past. So, whenever you fail, never feel overwhelmed by failures; instead, relax for a while and then forge ahead. For, if you do forge ahead, you will soon emerge a success.
Failure is often a road that leads to success eventually. As a matter of fact, every success story right here or out there has tasted failure once, twice or more before emerging a success at last. Thus, never be overwhelmed by failures. For, they are meant to be or become eye-openers to you.
Failure is often disheartening i.e. failure do cause great discouragement most times. But, you shouldn't feel discouraged just because of failure. For, every of your so seemed failure is a means to success.
For want of self-restraint many men are engaged all their lives in fighting with difficulties of their own making, and rendering success impossible by their own cross-grained ungentleness; whilst others, it may be much less gifted, make their way and achieve success by simple patience, equanimity, and self-control.
Genuine success is a valuable thing and like every other valuable thing it has a price tag. To be precise, genuine success has a price tag of hardwork, persistence and perseverance. Yes of course, nothing of value is free including genuine success. Therefore, work hard, persist and persevere all through. Even if/when it seems there is no headway at all. For, sooner or later genuine success will become your fate.
