Do not fear fail­ure

The late for­mer Amer­i­can Olympic sprint star Wilma Ru­dolph once said: “Win­ning is great, sure, but if you are re­ally going to do some­thing in life, the se­cret is learn­ing how to lose. No­body goes un­de­feated all the time. If you can pick up after a crush­ing de­feat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a cham­pion some­day.”

In the con­text of busi­ness it best de­scribes Raki­raki en­tre­pre­neur, Ravi­nesh Lal.

He quit teach­ing to start an IT shop. But the ven­ture failed and he lost $35,000.

That did not dampen his spirit so now he has ac­quired a cloth­ing shop.

He is de­ter­mined to suc­ceed one day. It means tak­ing the risks and re­ally put your mind to it.

It also means no fear. When you fail, have an­other go. Mr Lal has set an ex­am­ple. He has the right at­ti­tude to suc­ceed even­tu­ally.
