You should never be ashamed of your failures nor the fact that you are starting over. Treat them as your battle scars, just little reminders of everything you have already done.

Don’t be deterred by a few setbacks. The best thing to do is not give up.

Starting over only means you are changing how you will solve a problem. There will be times that you would need to do this, especially when things are not working out. It can even give us a refreshing way of looking at things and finding new strategies.

You mustn’t look at starting over as a sign of failure. Instead, see it as just another challenge you will rise above from.

Successful entrepreneurs didn’t get to where they are in an easy manner. Most of them had some rough experiences on their path to success. But these challenges never made them give up. In some cases, they started over to change their approach. But they never gave up, and neither should you.

Once you give up, you really fail. It is then you decide to close the possibility of succeeding. But if you choose to start over, that’s when you open yourself to another chance at success. You give yourself another opportunity to reach your goal.

We create mistakes and sometimes it costs us a lot, not just in expenses but also in time. These mistakes are what we take to help us reach our goal; so that, next time we would know how to recognize a bad call from a good one.

The most important things to do are to keep going and to not give up. Keep reaching for your goal no matter what obstacles may come your way.  Start over if you need to.

Prof. Dr. Kanayalal Raina

Thomas Edison failed 9,999 times to create the light bulb. Just imagine if he had given up after the 9,999th time. A journalist asked him: "How does it feel to have failed 9,999 times." Edison said "I haven't failed, I have had great success, finding 9,999 ways that do not work."
