To figure out if "Failure" is an actual stepping stone to success?
I guess it would be good for you to define...Success? and what it means to you, as a person.
Failure is the inability to accomplish a task. Nothing more. It doesn't matter why you failed. It doesn't matter how come you failed. Even, your location doesn't factor in your failure.
You failing, is directly related to your own ability. If you have the ability, you have self-esteem and confidence to get the task completed. If you think for a second, that you cannot do something, then you will NOT get it done.
Plain and simple.
Will you fail before you success? Probably. Most likely.
Will you find your success? That depends on what success means to you? It is a possibility, but not guaranteed.
You, as a person, have unlimited knowledge potential and in today's world- free information everywhere....you should be able to accomplish any task, regardless of difficult.
You simply need to make up your mind on, whether or not, you really want it.
But, failure is a stepping stone to success.....Yes.
A perfect example of the ultimate endurance of failure leading to success........The filament to create light was failed over 2000 times BEFORE it became successful.
You step forward, making an accomplishment and then you run in to a brick wall, and fail in your next step. You learn from what happened and move on by adjusting your knowledge.
