There are no achievements without failures.
But most often, people forget failures along the way. And it’s easy to do so, as these failures have transformed themselves into stepping stones towards the next step. They have not disappeared but transformed themselves. And what they have transformed themselves into has become more important.
Yes, people talk about learning from failures and it’s indeed how it works.
However, when a failure occurs, and one feels like a failure, the learning is almost inaccessible.
When a failure occurs and people move on, learning is what looking back allows to change.
It’s learning that can grow and evolve as one progresses.
What doesn’t work is to resist the sense of failure and decide to learn from it. It requires feeling failure while noticing that it doesn’t have to stay like that to be able to step into learning.
