The Rubik’s cube
Success is not just about the end, but it is about the paths you choose. Yes some may be wrong but what you earn from them is only yours, not something copied from somewhere. It’s not about just showing off what you have achieved; in fact it is about the happiness you get by going through the pursuit, it is about the transformation in you as a person. Success and failures will both transform you; you just choose which way you want.
I read a quote once, don’t remember it exactly, but the context was, as the number of failures increase in your life remember that your journey towards success is speeding. Better to keep trying and enjoying failures and success that come in the way and solve the cube your way.
