How To Circumvent Failure, Do You Know I Have Never Failed Any Exams In Life?


I am not the smartest guy on earth; I am an average Joe just like you but have been able to circumvent failure in life when things really matter.

Even though I believe failure can be used as a stepping stone to build success, it would be utterly nonsense for anyone to aim for failure.

Failure is completely unavoidable in our entire existence but it is possible to circumvent it when it comes to the things that really matter to you.

For me, nothing is as important to me as an examination. Even my driving test was like an exam I have to pass or life ends for me.

With my eager to pass attitude towards examinations over the years, I have been able to circumvent failure in this aspect of my life. When I have adopted and applied the same level of determination, dedication and preparation in relation to other activities, I have always been able to circumvent failure out there.

This together with other experiences means something works; there is a way you can circumvent failure in life-especially when it comes to the things that matter a lot to you.

I have written several examinations (some I can’t even tell you why I wrote them). In all these examinations, I have never failed or obtained grades below distinctions…

As I mentioned in my first paragraph, it is not that I am smart…It is because I have found a way to circumvent failure when it comes to examinations and the things that seriously matter to me in life.

What Is It That I Have Done Over The Years To Circumvent Failure?

Though I have always passed every examination with ease and with remarkable marks, it is the events leading to the examinations that have made the successes possible.

Preparation, Dedication and Determination are the tools I have used and continue to use to circumvent failure.

Most of us start things with little or no preparation. In such cases, the possibility of landing on failure is high.  When it comes to examinations, I have come to realize that the sort of preparation you put in have direct effect on the results.

I have always given myself ample time to study. So if a week is needed to study something (per popular belief), I have always used a minimum of 2 weeks. I believe over preparation does not cause any harm to results, but under preparation can have serious repercussions.

What is your preparation like whenever you have a task, exams or a goal ahead of you?  If you want to be able to circumvent failure when it comes to the things that matter to you in life, you must give the things that matter the enough attention and preparation they deserve.

Currently, I am studying to write the NY Bar exams in July 2013 (that is if I don’t change my mind) and from lawyers who have successfully passed the same exams, 2 months is the recommended study time.  Because I want to be able to circumvent failure, I have given myself 7 months to study.  Does it not sound absurd that someone is using 2 months to study and I am using 7 months? That is how much I believe in effective preparation towards the things that matter.

Consider the things you have failed to achieve and evaluate the strength of preparation you gave to them, and see if you would not have been able to circumvent failure should you have prepared more…

When things matter to you in life, try and put in more than enough preparation to circumvent failure and you would realize that, this actually works.
