It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default. – J.K. Rowling

Failing is proof that you tried. We all fail at something at some points of our life, but we won’t just stay there. We get up. We move on. We keep trying. If you’ve never failed before, you’ve never really tried hard enough.

Failures somehow help you understand more about yourself too – your strengths and your weaknesses. You’ll never know how strong you can really be until you’ve been tested. One day when you look back on your life, you realize every single time you failed, you were just a step closer to success.

Yes, failing is painful, and picking back yourself up is not easy. But remember, when you fail, you’re just at one point of your life, it’s not the end. The pain will fade as time passes, YOU will still be here though, standing. Failures will not destroy you, they only make you stronger than you ever imagined.

Those who try and fail are better than those who don’t need to do anything and succeed. This is how success fails and failure succeeds.
