Failure is what often happens in our lives. Students may fail in exams, athletes may fail in competitions, and even scientists may fail in their research work. Everyone has failing experiences in his own life. People feel upset when they fail.

For some people, failure represents opportunity and growth rather than deficit and loss.

According to article “Failures and Success”, Chris Brogan says “The more failures you can get out of the way early in the process, the easier it will be to work past them, and then get onto a successful course. Failing very late in the process is a lot harder to fix” (Brogan 1). This means that the more difficulties we overcome on the road, the closer we get to success. It is also even a lot better to fail early than late because every time we fail, we can learn important lessons from failure that we will never forget. We have improvements from conquering failure as each failure points out mistakes we have made and what we should avoid in the next attempt. In addition, Paul Logan narrates his story in the article “Zero”. He fails in high school with a “0” GPA, but he eventually graduates from community college with a perfect GPA. His story is a positive example which encourages us although...
