Definition of failure!

Failure

Failure doesn't mean - "You are a failure,"
It means - You have not succeeded.

Failure doesn't mean - "You accomplished nothing,"
It means - You have learned something.

Failure doesn't mean - "You have been a fool,"
It means - You had a lot of faith.

Failure doesn't mean - "You don't have it,"
It means - You were willing to try.

Failure doesn't mean - "You are inferior,"
It means - You are not perfect.

Failure doesn't mean - "You've wasted your life,"
It means - You have a reason to start afresh.

Failure doesn't mean - "You should give up,"
It means - "You must try harder.

Failure doesn't mean - "You'll never make it,"
It means - It will take a little longer.

Failure doesn't mean - "God has abandoned you,"
It means - God has a better way for you.

A nice poet. Though failure is not bad, its better to find out the reason of failure and then become succeed. Every people in the world failed in his life for once or more. I saw some friends who destroyed their life just for failure in love or exams. But some other friends never lost their hope and they are currently doing well and become succeed.

Now that's a nice way to comfort someone who's depressed.
Then after doing so, when he/she's in a lighter mood, just give out the realities in life part.

lol, this is a pretty interesting debate that's popped up... I'd have to say, that if you're going to talk about failure in general, I'd have to say that the first post on here isn't the best description... it's more like saying that you actually didn't fail. You should probably try accepting it rather than avoiding the fact that you failed. Failure is part of life, you just have to just accept that it happened and go on with life. The problem that some people have is that they can't stand that they've failed and wallow over it.
Failure is one step towards achievement.

Failure in relations to exams anything less than 70% is failure. (IMO)

I like this post as it has something to say that is worthy of reading. Since not every post has to be a debate its just nice to read what people write.

Failure doesn't mean - "Everyone does better than you,"
It means - You are in the company of people that can challenge you to do better.

Failure doesn't mean - "You have lost hope in people,"
It means - There will also be people that stand out to make your world a better place because of that.

This is sadly true.

You cannot pave a way to your goal with failure. You must succeed, and when you fail, you must learn and avoid that failure.

OP's post may be good for people without goals (if they exist?), then really, any failure isn't a failure, it's just a lesson and that's all. However, for people working with time constraints and financial constraints that want to achieve something, anything, the only way for them to 'win' is by perfection.

I agree with the post above. It is hard to go through a failure, and while you feel strong enough to start something again, there might be no second chance… Sad

The better way is always--PREPARE FOR THE WORST AND HOPE FOR THE BEST.

Good luck.

I define failure as when you neither achieve nor learn anything.

Your poem seems interesting! Very Happy That makes me think of a funny joke:
Failure isn't always horrible, which depends on the fact that it's the mother of success or not Very Happy

Failure refers to the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective, and may be viewed as the opposite of success. Product failure ranges from failure to sell the product to fracture of the product, in the worst cases leading to personal injury, the province of forensic engineering.
Failure define as Event in which any part of an equipment or machine does not perform according to its operational specifications. Failures are classified into several categories: dependent failure, non-critical failure, random failure,

I like how you have attached objective to either success or failure. Well done! Smile

You can SAY it, but that would not make it correct.
Basically there is no point trying for a definition because failure is a MATTER of definition, for any particular scenario. In other words, each secnario will contain the information needed to define failure, and that cannot, therefore, be done beforehand a priori

Good point things are always changing so there is little use in trying to define something before all the information comes in. We are chasing after our tails.

I’m wondering about success or failure though in reference only to a set of objectives. Objectives we can clearly define and the more accurately we define them the more realistic our determination of success or failure with them will be made clear to us.

Would we be in agreement here to say that if at any given time as we make a comparison between the information present and our objectives, success or failure could be determined and therefore definable?

As for the future who knows?

"Failure is failure."

For many people that is just the case. You attempted to accomplish something and it just did not happen. It failed. I don't think failure is a bad thing. It's a learning process. If you don't fail once in a awhile, you'll never move forward. It helps you understand your limitations and gets you to think about different or new ways to get around it.

If you never fail, you'll be stuck in the same routine. Doing the same thing over and over. You never learn because you're never challenged.

I just think that not accepting that failure is failure is just denial. You're ignoring it for what it is.
amagard
Failure is actually the best way to learn something. Because it usually hurts in some way thus you won't forget that experience. See: "The Psychology Behind the Importance of Failure"
The Dalai Lama also has expressed this nicely: Failure is the precursor to success. And: Hardly any great thing that you wish to accomplish will come without failure.

A person is not a failure until he says fail.
or
fail gives person a new way of success
so that he learns new techniques to win the game

Cheers Smile

At first it is normal for someone who fails being sad and feeling frustrated. This person may need some time, energy or psychological support to feel better. But, on the other hand, it is also clear that many successive failures prepare someone for the greatest success. That is, failures can be super teachers to the people who desire to be successful. Results falling behind of targets stimulate the start of harder works, enhanced carefulness, and awareness of the value of each opportunity. Even the success might come in some other areas of life. If we think deeper, we can realize that the human civilization is based on those works stemming from previous failures. So the pain stage of the failure must not only be overcome shortly, but also it must seed more correct efforts. As far as negative feelings are converted to productive work or study hours, failures should not be seen as loss or harm to the existence, property or asset of the one who failed.

Nice motivation poem. ...

Failure and defeat are life’s greatest teachers who teaches us better.
