It is the ordinary people who fear failures and worry about their misfortunes. Please go through the story of Oprah Winfrey, the most well-known 'rags to riches' story of our era. . Having been born into abject poverty in rural Mississippi, Winfrey went from being a young girl clothed in potato sacks to the richest and most powerful female media mogul in the world today. Winfrey had not only poverty but she had to confront a disruptive and abusive household with her strict father. She did blunders and committed many mistakes as a teenager. Winfrey underwent all imaginable tribulations and was subjected to all sorts of humiliations. Still, she did still well in school and she became an honours student. She got her big break when she became a newscaster in Nashville after finishing college. She did her work with all her heart, all heart soul and all her time. And Winfrey climbed heights and has come a long way from her poor upbringings, and she is worth $2.9 billion as of 2009, according to Forbes.

Make sure that the same mistakes are not repeated. Those who fear failures are actually inviting them. Their minds will go on probing the different ways defeats can surface. Failures eventually appear as if they have been waiting all the while. If you think about the possibilities of failure, the probability is that they will keep coming.
