Failure is an illusion that is produced from our attachment to specific expectations or results. The truth is that failure is our greatest teacher. It is often only through the experience of what we don't want that we become clear about we DO WANT. These are the experiences that shape our character and provide us with the strength and endurance to persevere in challenging situations. Failure is a great contributor to success.
