7 Quotes That Wont Make You Feel That Bad About Failure.

Life in your twenties is pretty much all failure. Actually, failure happens a lot more in life then success; thats why success always tastes so sweet. But for some reason failure seems to be everyones worse fear. That failure somehow means failing at life, failing completely. But that isn't true.
Failing is a part of life! Failure is what MAKES success stories! Don't believe me, check out these amazing quotes that truly show its failure is what makes life interesting.
I know this might sound a little cliche but if you stop trying because you are afraid to fail than you aren't really living at all. Life isn't meant to be lived in fear and mistakes happen. Embrace them.
Its impossible not to learn from failure, even if what you learn is how to NOT do something. That just means you'll know better for next time.
What I love about this quote is that even if you do fail at reaching your goal, your attempt has gotten you that much closer so why the hell should you stop now?
We are all afraid of being copies of a copy of a copy. We strive to stand out, to create a legacy; yet fear of failure will only lead to a copy of a copy. Nothing original was ever created from someone else's success, but from constant trail and error.
I LOVE THIS QUOTE. To often do we let failure linger with us like a pesky neighbor we just can't shake. We must remember that failure is not a person and can, in fact, remain in the yesterday.
Life isn't about being perfect, its about being strong, and courageous, and kind, and remarkable. Those things don't come easy and failure only makes those attributes on a person that much stronger.
And my all time favorite quote from Charlie Chaplin. Failure is an inevitable; it is how you handle your failings that will define your life. Make sure you can joke about yourself. Its the only way to make it though with a smile.

Frequently Asked Questions Q. How Long Do “Normal” Erections Last? According to a Sexual Medicine study of 500 couples across Europe and the US, the average erection during sex lasts 5.4 minutes. But “normal” erections can last anywhere from a few minutes to hours or even longer. That is 18 to 30-year-olds men’s during sex last average of 6.5 minutes. And 51+ year-olds men's during sex last average 4.3 minutes. But it’s important to point is that the study has some critical flaws. The study didn’t include any gay couples. Also, the clock only started at the beginning of vaginal penetration, ending with (male) orgasm. The study ignores foreplay completely, so take the results with a grain of salt. Q. Is it Normal to have erectile dysfunction(ED) in your 20’s? ED in Your 20’s. A Sexual Medicine study of over 400 men showed that nearly 1 in 4 new cases of erectile dysfunction occurs in men under the age of 40.... Erectile dysfunction is your body’s “check engine light” because ED can be an early symptom of serious health problems like high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, or low testosterone. The study says it assumes about 50% of men over 40+ and is even more usual as men age. “Many men are reluctant to bring it up with their doctor, “They should remember it is very common, and they are certainly not the first, nor will they be the last, to own this issue. We try to ask about it regularly, so they don’t have to bring up the topic. But, if we don’t know about it, we can’t help.” Q. How to Treat the Erection Problem in Men? Exercise regularly, lose more weight, stop smoking, drink less, and do not abuse drugs. Consider medicine to boost erections problems. Some medicines increase blood flow to the penis if taken an hour before sexual activity. They are sildenafil (Viagra), vardenafil (Levitra), and tadalafil (Cialis). Q. Is Erectile Dysfunction Permanent? If you are feeling erectile dysfunction (ED), you are not alone. It is thought that over twenty- million men in the United States suffer from erectile dysfunction (one in five men). ED Causes can be physical like high blood pressure, diabetes, even old age, depression and psychological. There are natural treatments such as weight loss or the use of a penis pump or medicines prescribed by your doctor. But you may wonder if once a man is diagnosed with ED, it will remain an issue for life, or is there a chance for a full recovery? Be sure to consult your doctor about symptoms you may experience and which treatment options are right for you.

what is career counselling
Career Counselling is the process through which one can understand one’s own self and the world around him/her to be able to chalk out a career path by making an informed decision around the same. Through Career Counselling, a student might overcome the uncertainties around his/her career, the lack of knowledge on the same, any disagreement with his/her parents, and come closer to fulfilling his/her dreams.  Why do we need a Career Counsellor?  We spend a good 40 years of our lives working on our careers. That’s almost 36,000 hours. Shouldn’t we ensure that we spend this precious time on something we enjoy? In order for us to identify what we like, and what our strengths are and how well they are aligned- we need the help of a career counsellor.  Clarity of thought School is a time when options are many. Children are surrounded by aspiring doctors, lawyers, singers, actors, sports stars. What’s more, teenagers are typically more impressionable which means they need more careful supervision. Here is when a career counselling session can really be of help to them. By asking the right questions and showcasing reality, a career counsellor can help erase some of the confusion in a student’s mind.  The direction towards the right path  Once the student’s confusion has been eased, the career counsellor can help him/her find the right path. Through multiple interactions, the student’s interests, aptitude, and personality can be concluded. In the process, the career counsellor also listens in and establishes a good rapport with the student which then puts them in a position to direct the student towards a path that is most suited to him/her.  Technology-aided assistance thereby reducing bias  It is likely that some career counsellors are influenced by their own personal bias while counselling. However, with the help of online psychometric assessments, the results are quite evident. They make the counsellor’s task easier because they can then base their recommendations on the assessments. Thus, the student receives an objective suggestion.  Awareness of lesser-known and more obvious choices It is impossible for a student to keep track of all the possible career paths available to him/her. Due to the extensive research they conduct, career counsellors are often able to shed light on the not very popular choices of careers. These unknown paths might end up being the ideal career for the student!  Who needs counselling? The CBSE requires that there be a career counsellor in every affiliated school. Every child who goes to school requires a career guidance counsellor. If children are to break free from traditions and create their own lives by not following their parents’ footsteps, they must counsel a career guidance specialist. Even children who have supportive parents can benefit from career counseling sessions because they can learn a lot more about themselves and make a more informed decision about their careers.  Who does Career Counseling?  In schools, there is supposed to be a designated career counsellor who handles queries. However, most schools are in acute shortage. As a result, schools outsource counseling work to private companies. There are several career counselling companies that shoulder the responsibility. They offer professional assessment, guidance, college shortlisting and application assistance. There are also independent career counsellors who perform the same functions on a freelance basis.  What is required to do counselling?  Most career counsellors have a Bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Sciences or Psychology or in a related discipline and they top that up with a Master’s degree in Counselling, after which, they take some more steps to earn their license to practice. After they have earned their certification and license, they can start practicing. This is the long route to becoming a Career Counsellor which involves several years of academic study and a few years of practice too.  Another way to do career counselling  Let’s say you’re genuinely interested in career counseling but haven’t had the necessary education to support a career in it. Fret not, you can do the Global Career Counsellor certification program and start practicing anywhere in the world. It is Asia’s first career counseling program in partnership with UCLA Extension. Take control of your career, become a Global Career Counsellor today!
