Lilian Esoro writes on success

Lilian Esoro shared highlights from a recent conversation she had which centered on failure and success.

The Nollywood actress noted that there is no formula for success as she advised people to see failure as a blessing in disguise and a lesson to learn and grow from.

Lilian Esoro wrote on Instagram;

I was having a discussion the other day, and somehow we got talking about success and how to sustain and handle certain

 situations. And I said there really isn’t any formula for success! It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. They go huh? I’m like that’s the problem.... You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. See failures as a blessing in disguise, a lesson you learn n grow from. It’s your decision at the end of the day. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes.

Make all you can. Because remember it’s in the failures and mistakes you find success.
