To win all the time , in sport, war and business, can be dehumanising. The best sportspersons, politicians, professionals and businesspersons should accept and savour defeat,because occasional losers turn out to be decent guys — they understand what it is to be like the rest of the crowd, losing most of the time and feeling low. There is exquisite delight in the solidarity of defeat, but only misery, even if concealed, in the loneliness of success. Defeat introduces humility, empathy, maturity and perspective in an individual.True winners are those who have overcome fear of losing and are no longer driven by competition to win. An individual, once humbled, can learn to love,can reflect on past acts of ingratitude or arrogance. the individual who rise after failing is in my opinion is a true winner...like rising from the ashes what do u think???? source:times of india

I just want to share what I have learnt till date. Failure is not important for success but it is a part of every success story. Whenever you undertake a new project, you may either be successful or a failure. If you fail, you just can't leave the show. You have to gather courage to point out the loopwholes and move on. That's how life goes on as a whole.

I think success is the next step to failure. If we don't fail we will not understand the value of success and so it is very much important that we first phase few failures and then we can always achieve this success. Each and every failure teaches us something or the other being successful is very easy. But it is tough to face the failure and then learn from it. I take failures in a positive manner and always try to learn what mistake I did that is my reason of failing

I think your views is the best i have come across.It is failure that leads to sucess.If you think you can over come failure to be sucessful you will be but some where we have to have failures these failures will teach us our mistakes.If we keep acheiving with out failure we may be over confident and over do and that may lead to break down.

Hi anshul good debate, I agree with you. If you have felt sadness then only you can appreciate what is happiness. Failurwe teaches us to reach in to us and pull out the best from inside. I feel failure is success turned inside out. I failed once and felt so ashamed of myself,never thought i will be able to see anyone in tyhe face ever again, but i worked hard and next year topped my course giving both year papers in a go. From then on I have never looked back. You have to face failure somtimes to reach for the sky. have you ewver jumped to touch the branch of a tree, what you do is first you bend your knees pushing yourself down and then raie yourself up by jumping high-same rule applie in life too. first reach to you lowest level and then touch all time high too.

thnx... I think We've all learned new skills in life and, with very rare exception if at all, we learned them only after first failing to do them properly. We know this is true, but we're all human and it's human to hate failure. I think it's especially difficult for us as adults. Somehow, because we're older, we feel we should learn more quickly and succeed more quickly than we did when we were young. So we slip back into the attitude we had as children. But nowwe usually lack an older authority, a "parent",to keep us on track. We have to do it ourselves.As a result,we can end up focused on our limitations instead of on our potential and we "fail".If we want our middle age to be successful, we have to learn againthat failure is important and shouldn't be feared. It should be seen for what it is,a step on the road to success.

Wolfgang Mozart was told by the Emperor that his "Marriage of Figaro" was far too loud and contained far too many notes. Albert Einstein was told by his schoolmaster that he would never amount to anything. Vincent Van Gogh only sold ONE painting during his lifetime. Today his paintings are the top price-getters. Thomas Edison, the greatest inventor of all time, had more failures than successes. I think it is safe to say that most great achievers suffered many failures and had reason to think they were failures, but they went ahead. In the face of adversity, they continued to believe in themselves and they achieved. Failure should be a spur, an incentive. If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you have always got. There will be no progress. Each failure should be viewed as a step forward. After all, three steps forward and two steps back is still a forward move.

Yes, failure is important for success. You need to know what failure is in order to completely enjoy success. You can't win all the time. Those that think that they do live such horrible lives. I know some of these people, and I see what it does to them and those that love them. It's an addiction, if you ask me. Also, to really know someone's strenght is to see how they rise after they fall.
