Till 1995, few entrepreneurs recognized the power of world wide web.

Alibaba.com and Amazon.com are few enormously successful websites increasing their business ever since. As time passed by many new entrepreneurs started new companies to facilitate internet users like search engines. Larry Page & Sergey Brin founded Google in 1998. Today it is the largest internet company by revenue.

It is not just the internet but the vision, commitment and persistent hard work that make these companies what they are today. Nevertheless, Internet provided them powerful tool and platform to connect with the world. Jack Ma founder of Ali baba group, during various interviews keep telling people that when he started his business, no one knew about internet and speed of net was too slow. Most of the things were against him but still he continued with his vision. Today he is one of the richest man in China.

As Internet become famous, more and more companies join the bandwagon. After 25 years, presently internet connects more than a billion peoples around the globe. Almost half of the world population uses Internet. Internet becomes a symbol of development. More internet user means more developed region. Websites are increasing at exponential rate. Even though doing business on internet is becoming difficult because of international competition websites are increasing because of ease of starting and user-friendly website setup that too at low maintenance cost. WordPress and Wix are two examples of websites, which allows you easy setup of your website even without knowing web design and development.   

For small companies too, Internet has huge potential. With right kind of product and skill, they can cater needs of international market. One can display their products to whole world! You can also advertise on social networking sites in free or by paying money for advertisement based on CPC (Cost per click) or CPM (Cost per thousand impressions).

If you find many viewers for your videos (more than 1000 views), you can monetize your channel and earn some money. Do not start any You Tube channel or any website with the sole intent of making money without being passionate about your work.

Internet is a great tool for education and learning too. All kind of educational stuff, books, online classes, videos and latest news are radially available on internet. As time will pass, importance of internet will increase further.  

Failures are good

We live in a world where only achievers and successful persons are recognized. Failures are highly undesirable and inadvisable. Not just society treat such persons who fail in some endeavor awfully but the person himself feels ashamed. No doubt success is great. But failure too has a great hidden side which very few appreciate or even know.

When you fail you break away from your routine daily life and find some free time for yourself. This time you can utilize in introspection and reason for your failure. Don’t waste this time in worrying and feeling dejected. Everyone fails, but you are not a failure until you give up. Greatness is not in never falling but in rising higher every time you fall. This is very precious time. Use it to start a fresh.

In daily routine life we are so occupied that we never get chance to think about our life, our priorities and the values. We became like a programmed machine. We forget what matters most for us when we initially started. Some people even forget to take a vacation and work continuously for years. A Failure gives you time to break away with this monotonous routine life. Use this time to remember what was most important for you? Ask yourself question: Is this type of life I wanted? This is the time to make a 360 degree turn if required. Else start preparing to turn your failure into bigger success by learning from it. Tension, worries and procrastination waste time and energy. Don’t waste time in worrying. It will not solve any problem. Meet Peoples who always encouraged you. Read inspirational books.

Every one of us is surrounded with small thinkers. These people demotivate you and create a doubt in your mind about your ability. Don’t listen to such people. Start Believing in your strength. We all have tremendous power hidden in our mind. This power only comes out when we faced with difficulties. Never give up. Don’t feel guilty. Human are born to make error. Forgive yourself and forget anything which makes you feel guilty. But don’t forget to learn from mistakes. Anyone can make a mistake; fool insist on repeating it. So don’t be a fool. Life teaches you lesson in harsh way. It is always better to learn from others mistake instead of making one.

Enjoy and cherish your failures as you cherish your success. Because failures make you strong. They give you time to think about yourself and most importantly they teach you a lesson.
