If you're not failing, you're probably not really moving forward.

When it comes to facing failure, most people will grudgingly concede that any person must take it through some adversity in order to succeed. They'll acknowledge that you have to experience the occasional setback to make progress. But I believe that success comes only if you take that thought one step further. In order to achieve your dreams, you must embrace adversity and make failure a regular part of your life. If you're not failing, you're probably not really moving forward. Do you agree with me?

Hello maryadrew, I definitely agree with you. We can't achieve the so called success until we fail, and when we do fail, its how we handle the situation, that matters much. If then we feel that it is really for us, try again and find out were you have been wrong and do it again for the better, have the staying power and finish the race. But sometimes we might be wrong in targeting a goal, if that is the case, then change the course and target again, keep trying and trying and someday you'll be able to give the bull's eye of a target. That is what we call success. Happy mylotting

I think you were just talking about people like me, I guess I learnt more from failure than success itself since every time I failed, I would try to do better if I meet the same thing again. Besides, failure will motivate me to do better and be more careful. So I am convinced that failure is the mother of success. However if someone failed too many times, he will get depressed and lose confidence in everything. Therefore failure may do me a favor sometimes, I am still try to avoid it as hard as I can.

I don't think of success in terms of failure. I think in terms of what needs to be done, what problems need to be solved in order to move forward. Obstacles are just that, things to overcome. Cheers!!
