Failure is a Stepping Stone to Success 
“Never let Success get to your head; never let failure get to your heart- Anonymous”
To put in simpler words, failure is inevitable. Therefore one should not get disheartened if we fail. We should not be downtrodden with failure instead we should stand up and keep going. If we get success we should not build an inflated ego because if we face any failure in future it will become harder for us to cope with it. 
We should always keep in mind that success & failure go hand in hand. If we don’t fail, we will never be aware of our shortcomings. If we see failure is really a stepping stone to success. Mostly all of us always have a negative aspect of failure. We should change our way of thinking towards failure and with a positive outlook, we should learn by failures. We should consider failure as success and take it is an opportunity.
We should always keep faith in ourselves take failures & setbacks as a normal part of life. Failures always help us to improve & encourage us to work harder to achieve success. If we are wise we should always take advantage of failures.

World Braille Day 
World Braille Day is celebrated on 4th January since 2019, is observed to raise awareness of the importance of Braille as a means of communication in the full realization of the human rights for blind and partially sighted people.
What is Braille?
Braille is a tactile representation of alphabetic and numerical symbols using six dots to represent each letter and number, and even musical, mathematical and scientific symbols. Braille (named after its inventor in 19th century France, Louis Braille) is used by blind and partially sighted people to read the same books and periodicals as those printed in a visual font. 
Braille is essential in the context of education, freedom of expression and opinion, as well as social inclusion, as reflected in Article 2 of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
I would like to quote the words of Armistead Maupin 'Like I've always said, love wouldn't be blind if the braille weren't so damned much fun.'

Quality 
Quality is a thing of excellence of something as compared or measured against other similar things and may be understood differently by different people. Quality determines how much and how well children learn and the extent to which their education translates. 
Every educator wants that their students have high standard and quality work. They always try to plan good lessons so their students can always do their best. 
Achieving quality can make yourself and others feel happy and good inside. We can also work together to get quality work and quality to care for the world. There should be always positive things in our words and thoughts need to be of high quality, there is no place for negative words. Its means not giving up of yourself, you need to believe that they can do it and educators must tell this to their students. 
And also in our circumstances, we need a friend who will stand by you when all will against. To get excellent in work we need a better quality of everything and for that, we practice and also educator can encourage their students for better quality work and students will give their best.

Hard Work 
Hard work and punctuality are essential for a happy and successful life. They help in meeting the desired targets of one’s life. It plays a very important role in the life of a student. A student’s life is the building block of his future. He must practice punctuality and hard work in his daily life in order to achieve his goals and be successful.
These days, there is a lot of pressure on students. They are expected to be the masters in all fields. The cut-throat competition in their life cannot be left apart. They can overcome all this with organised work which adds to their efficacy. Organised work and punctuality go hand in hand. If a student does everything in time, by making and following a time-schedule ethically, he will never lag behind.
Hard work, which is the key to success, will help a student to enhance his skills. It will also increase his confidence which is a must for all students. A student must know the importance of time. The time that has once gone never comes back is an old saying and a student must keep it in mind. A student must know how to manage his precious time because student-life is the most important part of one’s life. And here if time is lost, it means everything is lost. 
He should not be taken in by others’ views. Rather he should be his own manager. And a good manager is one who does the right thing at the right time and at the right place. So, all of these three issues should be kept in mind by a student if he wants to establish good grounds for his future.

Success 
Success is something that we dream to achieve which is totally different for each one of us. It gives us a feeling of happiness or satisfaction when we gain it. It provides true meaning to our lives.
In order to succeed, the first thing that you need is to have a goal which needs to be attained. It can be anything towards which you have a particular interest or passion.
Secondly, you need to strive for it, being a passionate dreamer. Concentrate more and take up all the risks and pains to achieve it. Work damn hard for it. Give up everything for your dreams but never give up on your dreams. Everything starts with a small dream, so you have to be a dreamer at first. You know that just being a dreamer can do nothing because dreamers cannot be achievers but just dreamers. Only a few achieve their dreams or goals.
You need to be a believer because nothing will happen until you believe.  Others won’t believe but they will somehow make you doubt on your dreams. Always remember those dreams belong to you and it’s your responsibility to turn it into your reality. Others may or may not support you, you will be all alone but just know the path towards success is less crowded and you will be the one there and no one else.
The next thing you need to know is that hard work pays off. If you want to get something you need to give something at first. Here what you give is your hard work, your energy, your efforts, your time, your tears and it is going to pay off. You need to have your courage to handle, your patience and persistence. 
Nothing happens overnight. Everything takes time. Everything starts from nothing. So you need to make it out of scratch. You cannot build an empire in just one day. You need to hold on through your hardships and pain. Successful people know they are going to be successful no matter what,  that’s the faith that they have in their hearts. You should know that success is destined and your goal is your final destination.

Mathematical Operations 

Addition, division, multiplication and subtraction.
These are the four mathematical operations.
If you are not good in these operations.
You are not good in calculation.
If you are not good in calculation.
You cannot solve simple mathematical problem.
Due to this problem you have tension.
Due to this tension you go to tuition.
But now a day’s tuition is a fashion.
So my dear student doesn’t go to tuition.
Take help from your teacher and, follow his/her instruction.

 How motivation is important in our life
So what is motivation, exactly? Author Steven Pressfield has a great line in his book, The War of Art, which I think gets at the core of motivation. To paraphrase Pressfield, “At some point, the pain of not doing it becomes greater than the pain of doing it.”
In other words, at some point, it is easier to change than to stay the same. It is easier to take action and feel insecure at the gym than to sit still and experience self-loathing on the couch. It is easier to feel awkward while making the sales call than to feel disappointed about your dwindling bank account.
This, I think, is the essence of motivation. Every choice has a price, but when we are motivated, it is easier to bear the inconvenience of action than the pain of remaining the same. Somehow we cross a mental threshold—usually after weeks of procrastination and in the face of an impending deadline—and it becomes more painful to not do the work than to actually do it.

Goals of our life
What is life? Life is a golden opportunity that god has given us. We are role models for our own life. Actually, life is a collection of some memories, beliefs, dreams, struggles and emotions. We always think about our goals for a successful life. “Success is not an accident. It is the result of your attitude and your attitude is a choice. Success is a matter of choice not name”. Remember, “ Life is different from a teacher because a teacher teaches a lesson first and then takes the exam, but life takes the exam first and then teaches a lesson”. Life is a name for love, dedication, happiness, care, affection, respect and forgiveness. We have to make goals of our life. We can design our life as five parts:-
1) Physical goals- ‘Health is wealth’. We should do exercises and eat proper and healthy food.
2) Financial goals- It deals with our career, money and achievement.
 
3) Social goals- It deals with our family, our
relations and society.
4) Mental goals- It deals with our intellectual powers, skills, our hobbies, etc.
5) Spiritual goals- It deals with loyalty, peace, confidence, prosperity, beliefs and gratitude.
“When we want something, the entire universe conspires in helping us to achieve it”. In other words, ‘life tests us all the time'. Life is worthless without hope.

New Year’s Resolution
Every student often sets resolutions on New Year. Basically a New Year resolution is made when one wants to correct the mistakes they have done the past year or do something in a more organized manner.
Students specially set their objectives regarding their studies and to brighten their future. A good student always learns lessons from the mistakes committed in the present or past year and on the eve of New Year pledges to oneself to rectify all mistakes once did in the face of ocean of other activities.
A student often procrastinate studies and uses time carelessly and indulges in the wanton activities which adversely affect their studies. It is very necessary for a student to set the target every year and try every waking moment to get the desired and set target. Every student must dream to do something productive because dreaming and materializing dreams is akin to success. 
New Year is something which brings excitement in the life of everyone. But it is really very special for the students. They are the ones who are the future. New Year Resolution for Students will prove to be extremely meaningful when conveyed to them in an interesting way.
Have some points while making your resolution.
1. New Year is a new beginning where we can start things freshly.
2. Life gets interesting when we try new things.
3. We should make changes in ourselves that enhances our personality.
4. A New Year Resolution is the best way to boost up our ideas of life.
5. New Year Resolution helps to eliminate our bad habits and take in the good habits.
A quote which is motivational for making New Year’s Resolution:
“Life’s not about expecting, hoping and wishing,
It’s about doing, being and becoming.”

Education 
Education is the act of learning things around us. It helps us to easily understand and deal with any problem and makes balance throughout the whole life in every aspect. Education is the first and foremost rights of every human being. Without education we are incomplete and our lives are useless. Education helps us to set a goal and go ahead by working on that throughout the life.
It improves our knowledge, skill, confidence level and personality. It empowers us intellectually to interact with others in our life. Education brings maturity and teaches us to live in society with changing environment. It is the way to social development, economic growth and technological development.
