How to handle success and failure

Everyone has dreams. We all gallop to fulfill them. And in the way we meet two things; success and failure. Human nature is to be cheerful in success and depressed in failure. It may be possible that our journey may be interrupted at certain point due to them. We may finish there and say, “It’s enough ! I can’t do any more !”
But the core essence of life is: Go on. A few achieve and a few quit. But the important thing that should not be forgotten is: Moving on. We can not stop anywhere. The journey should not be ended up. Do not let success get to your head; do not let failure get to your heart. Don’t give up; just sail on.
But how can it be possible ? When we succeed, we are jovial; when we fail, we are miserable. When we succeed, we slow down; when we fail, we quit. Moving on doesn’t mean not being jolly or gloomy; but not letting own self stuck there.
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts.” ~ Winston Churchill

Don't worry; be merry !

चित्ते प्रसन्ने भुवनं प्रसन्नं
चित्ते विषण्णे भुवनं विषण्णम् ।
अतोऽभिलाषो यदि ते सुखे स्यात्
चित्तप्रसादे प्रथमं यतस्व ॥

मन खुश हो, तो सारा जहां खुश लगता है । मन निराश हो, तो सारा जहां निराश लगता है । अतः यदि आप खुश रहना चाहते है, तो पहले अपने मनको खुश रखने का प्रयास किजीए ।
If mind is happy; world seems to be happy. If mind is gloomy; world seems to be gloomy. So if I am willing to be happy, try to make a mind happy.
We sail in the Infinite ocean of desire :
We are living in an advanced technological age. We have all information at fingertips; but still we are craving. Isn’t it seems to be a tragedy that we have all in hand; nevertheless we are running! Why is it so?
I think yearning is the burning issue of this age. More we try to achieve; more we become distant from merriment. Gaiety and mirth are the real attainment of life. But we ignore it. Ignorance and annoyance from human qualities will lead us nowhere.
