  1. This is absolutely right. There is a far greater lesson to be learned from failure.

    As Uncle Henry said to his young nephew in the movie ‘A Good Year,’ “You’ll come to see that a man learns nothing from winning. The act of losing, however, can elicit great wisdom …”

    1. I agree with you. I absolutely love the quote you’ve mentioned from ‘The Good Year.’ It’s my favourite film.

  2. I love this quote too. The irony of failure is that it actually fosters growth. My failures have made me realize that I really haven’t failed; I just found a thousand ways that didn’t work.

    But the lessons we learn from failure are invaluable and most of my success came from having failed.

    1. Thanks Tim. I also believe failure fosters growth, but for many of us unfortunately failure goes on to create more failure as we will fail to understand where we went wrong.

      When we learn how to change our mistakes we should go on to have some success. It depends on our perceptions and whether we’re willing to look at our mistakes and how we could have done things differently to bring about success.
