Vocabulary Tricks Part 18: Failures Are the Pillars of Success

Failures are invaluable experiences. Failures reveal our weaknesses and guide us for future preparation. They motivate us to put more efforts. Therefore, failures prepare us for the next endeavour.
The one who learns from mistakes always achieve success. We should do the analysis and rectify our mistakes. We should be optimistic as pessimistic people cannot attain success. Pessimism is a stumbling block in our path to success.
