Success is absent unless failure is present.

That doesn’t mean you are going to succeed each time you fail.

Between failure and success, there is one important step that most people miss, because of which they do not reach the step of success: Reflection.

Reflecting on what did the failure teach us.
Reflecting on how did the failure use my weakness.
Reflecting on how we can use our strengths the next time.
Reflecting on what is the best thing that came out of this failure.
Reflecting on how you became a better person in enduring this failure.

You don’t choose failure. But what you choose after failure, reflects if you will be successful or not.
