Is it the opposite of success. At the end of our lives are failures and successes equalled out. Do they have any meaning in the experience of life. Do we ever have as many successes as failures. Do failures always spoil successes.
Is failure an end in itself. Are our lives made up of a series of failures strung together into something that is called life. Is success ever interspersed within these failures.
Are we reliant on others to be awarded successes. Do others always judge our failures.
Do successes even make a difference in our lives. Is success the big picture item in life or does it always end up the small item at the bottom left hand corner of the big picture.
Failure is a difficult word. Failure is a concept that follows us through our lives and we never really come to terms with it. We are always failing. We always put more emphasis on failure than success. A dyeing person always recounts their failures. Do we ever get solace from our successes or failures. Most people must die feeling they have failed.
Even if we consider the most successful people, can they ever claim to be successful. Can the most successful politicians ever claim to have succeeded in their endeavours.
Winston Churchill for instance. He had many more years of failure in his life than years of success. Perhaps, like some notable people, living much longer than he deserved to could be called success.
Just how many people really succeed in this world. Think of how many people in the world can claim to have success. Paul McCartney for instance. Even he has had his failures. But perhaps his failures contributed to his success.
Failure is a constant in most lives. If you succeed at some enterprises but fail at most desires does this mean you have succeeded or failed. Can failure ever over ride success.
Can we claim that success comes in small packages. In time can we claim that these small increments add up to success and outnumber the failures.
Just what is the definition of failure and success.
Is success the admission that you might have done something worthy of self recognition?
Is failure the admission you have done something that is not worthy of any self self recognition?
