Life is a struggle and not a bed of roses. Man is not perfect and he cannot ensure success in everything that he under takes. He often stumbles in life for the simple reason that he has face many hurdles.

Human life is the story of numerous failures and a few achievements. Success naturally gives us joy and pride. Failures generally disappoint and discourage us. However, the right approach to failures is not to be disheartened by them. Misfortunes try a man in the same way as gold is tried in fire. Failures should be regarded as stepping stones to success. We should not allow our failures to blind our judgement.

We should learn some lesson out of them. Each time we fail, we come to know the reasons of our failure. We become aware of our weakness and defects. We also discover our hidden powers. The experience we gain each time makes our path to success smoother and easier. We can achieve success in life by removing the pitfalls which caused our failure.

Thus failures are our best instructors, guides and teachers. They make us bold, active and vigilant. Those who fail must succeed one day. The story of “King Bruce and the Spider” should be an eye-opener. Many failures precede the conquest of Mount Everest and the moon. Failures should inspire us to work harder for success. They should not deter or unnerve us.

“The season of failure is the best time for sowing the seeds of success”.
