Failures are stepping stones to success

Failure is the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective, and may be viewed as the opposite of success.

Failure can be differently perceived from the viewpoints of the evaluators. A person who is only interested in the final outcome of an activity would consider it to be an Outcome Failure if the core issue has not been resolved or a core need is not met. A failure can also be a process failure whereby although the activity is completed successfully, a person may still feel dissatisfied if the underlying process is perceived to be below expected standard or benchmark.

Despite the definitions, failure can be perceived as one way of not doing something. It is a learning experience. And each learning makes us wiser to pitfalls and mistakes. Failures become stepping stones to success only if we learn from them.
