Every true SUCCESS was once a FAILURE

'Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every-time we fall.'

Even though the society we live in look down on anyone who fails but in the real sense of live and living failure is a part of us that ultimately brings about the success in us.
You may fail a thousands times, but rising each time you fall is key.

If you've never failed then you have not tried anything new, Every success story in the world today has at one time been a failure and a couple of this successes failed a thousand times and over.
Society doesn’t reward defeat, and you won’t find many failures documented in history books. The exceptions are those failures that become steppingstones to later success. Such is the case with Thomas Edison, whose most memorable invention was the light bulb, which purportedly took him 1,000 tries before he developed a successful prototype. “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” a reporter asked. “I didn’t fail 1,000 times,” Edison responded. “The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”

Unlike Edison, many of us avoid the prospect of failure. In fact, we’re so focused on not failing that we don’t aim for success, settling instead for a life of mediocrity. When we do make missteps, we gloss over them, selectively editing out the miscalculations or mistakes in our life’s résumé.

“Failure is not an option,” NASA flight controller Jerry C. Bostick reportedly stated during the mission to bring the damaged Apollo 13 back to Earth, and that phrase has been etched into the collective memory ever since.

  • “When we give ourselves permission to fail, we, at the same time, give ourselves permission to excel.” - Eloise Ristad
