Failure is an event , never a person

Do you agree with this ? A person in spite of seeing several failures in his life still may succeed so the failure is only an event . Most of the time it is a general tendency to brand a person as looser when he faces several consecutive failures in his life. It might be possible that after few failures he/she may succeed in every venture he/she in to. It is difficult for him/she to convince others that the failure is only an event but not a person. What do you have to say ?

A person may fail at many things and still be a success. Thomas Edison was supposed to have said that he could show 10,000 ways not to make a light bulb. Man is judged by how he handles failure. If a man has a failure and tries a different approach then he is not a failure. If however, a man tries and fails, and then stops trying, then he is a failure. Many people have had failures only to later achieve greatness. They used their failure as a learning tool, and a stepping stone in order to achieve the success that they sought.

What you are saying is true. Failure is not a bench mark to decide ones capabilities, but how he/she handles the failure is more important. Thanks for the response cheers!!

You're right if we look into the bright side but failure has a great effect, sometimes it create or break a person lives. If we fail on something, we saw the negative effect on the first strike, we only realize the positive one if any, later on. Failures happen to make one's endeavor perfect. Scientist failed not once but many times before they come up to make their inventions perfect.

I agreed with you strongly, but we should treat the failure discriminationly, for most failure, we can renew our career or life, sometimes it is dissolving. So we should try our best to success not fail.

You are right. We can not judge a person just by his/her failures. There arepeople who have acheived their dreams in life after a seriec of failures.
