So what? You’ve failed in relationships, on jobs, didn’t get the promotions that you knew you deserved, in school, and many other facets of life. Again, I say, so what? Do you realize that your failures don’t define who you really are from within? Many times failure is only a launching pad to help us move from where we are and it propels us into the place we need to be. Every failure, I believe, comes with built-in consequences that help us find our way and true position in life. I believe you are not a failure if you tried something and you didn’t succeed in it. That’s called “discovery” to me. You’ve discovered what you should and shouldn’t be doing in life. I would define failure as one who desires strongly to try something, but never tries because s/he fears s/he just might fail.
