What ‘Angry Birds’ and Failure have in Common?

You might be wondering what are you going to find in this article after reading the name of this article.

 Before we talk about ‘Angry Birds’, Let’s talk something about failures.

 Every person who has gone on to great success and fortune has had their fair share of failure.

 You might know about Michael Jordan, Who has been one of the most successful basketball player in the history.

 He was the superstar and he is still called the legend of basketball game. BUT it took him many failed attempts before he finally succeeded.

Michael Jordan Jump See What He says,

“I have missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. Twenty six times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life.

And that is why I succeed.”


Whether it’s business, politics, sports, science, art, acting and in every profession and field, Failure is part of the journey.

 Everybody talks about the success of successful person.

 But, sadly very few people try to find how many times ‘a successful person’ failed before acheiving the success.


Now let’s look at modern example…..


Have you ever heard of the game ‘Angry Birds’?

 To this day it is the BEST-SELLING app of all time.

Angry Birds has been praised for its successful combination of addictive gameplay, comical style, and low price.

 Its popularity led to versions of Angry Birds being created for personal computers and gaming consoles, a market for merchandise featuring its characters and even long-term plans for a feature film or television series.

With a combined 1.7 billion downloads across all platforms and including both regular and special editions, the game has been called “one of the most mainstream games out right now”, “one of the great runaway hits of 2010”, and “the largest mobile app success the world has seen so far”. (Sources- Wikipedia)


So far so good to know that….


But here’s what most people don’t know…


The game was made by a company from Finland called Rovio.


They had already created 51 different products and the company was struggling. They were laying off their staff to try to save the company.


It was difficult to run the company without any momentum in business.

 Then they came up with the idea for Angry Birds.


The game not only saved the company, but turned it into a mobile gaming legend.


It became one of the most addictive games.

 Think about that.

51 forgettable products before they finally hit the goal.

That’s a lot of failure, wouldn’t you say?

 Yet they pushed on even when they didn’t feel like it.

 And it paid off.

 So the next time you’re feeling like you are a failure… Just remember the examples I have shared here.


Failures is the path to success.


If you haven’t seen failure, You will not enjoy the taste of success.


If you have seen failures in your life, you will really feel proud on yourself after achieving success.


I bet you will feel pleasure to share your Failure/Success Story with others and they will give you enormous respect not only for achieving success but for facing and overcoming failures.


Failure is part of your journey.


But Your biggest success could be right around the corner.

That’s it for now…..


Awaiting Feedback! Until Next time.


To Your Enlightened success.
