    I think that mainly depends on when people consider themselves to have failed. If they try something and it doesn't work and they consider that a failure, then they may have hundreds of failures before they have a success. However, if they continue to try multiple possibilities for a solution and do not consider it a failure until they have all proven not to work, then the failures are much fewer. That said, every failure in life isn't really a failure if we learn something from it and thus have a better way to do things in the future. As with most things, it all has to do with mindset...some people are successful in everything they do and others are "born losers," yet these two types of people generally run into things that don't work at the same rate. If you don't want to consider yourself a failure, then simply keep trying and don't let every minor setback be considered a failure.

    It is not how many times you fail that counts.It is how many times you can get up and keep going again is what decides success.The important aspect is to consider each failure as a learning experience and try not to repeat the same mistake.One can fail many times before they succeed but the cause of failure must  NOT BE THE SAME.

    This isn't exactly an answer to your question, but I am reminded of a research report that my daughter did about Walt Disney.  She learned that he went bankrupt eight times before he "made it."  That has always been a source of inspiration for my husband.

    there is no research about the average failure of a person. it is all in the mind and how they reform their plan to lead them to success.
    therefore, there is no single step for success and also no average number of times before a failure can turn to success.
