More, Please

In a restaurant, a beggar approached a wealthy woman who was having dinner with her husband.
Beggar : Excuse me, Madam. I haven't eaten since this morning.
Hearing that, the woman whispered in her heart, "It is a pity."
She gave the beggar 1000 rupiahs.
Beggar: It is not enough, Madam.
Woman : How come?
Beggar : With this amount of money. I can't buy my favourite food - fried chicken

Never Give Up

A failure is a reality that usually takes place in our daily life. No one like such a reality.
Having a failure makes us worry and doubt. When we fail in doing something, we seem to lose enthusiasm so that we will not try anymore. We submit ourselves to the reality without making efforts to find solution to our problems.

Wise people say that a failure is a chance for us to analyze, the only real failure is the failure which prevents us from trying further. As a result, we know that a failure is needed ; it is even part of our success. The following are suggestions or lessons that we learn from our failures.

1. A failure is an opportunity for us to examine whether we have done our best or not.
If not, that is a good moment to change our strategy.

2. A failure provides chances for us to introspect ourselves in order to find a remedy for the failure. It is quite difficult for us to assess ourselves, because we always tend to blame our failures on other people. We seldom think that we ourselves who cause the failures.

3. A failure does not mean the end of everything. But by having a failure, we will be motivated
to try and to work more seriously.

Now, we have to be brave to face and accept failures. Our failures can become our motivators.
The key point is that : Never give up when facing a failure.

There's no thrill in easy sailing when the skies are clear and blue,
there's no joy in merely doing things which any one can do.
But there's some satisfaction that is mighty sweet to take,
when you reach a destination that you thought you'd never make. ( Spirella )
