Many important lessons are learned from failure. After reading this article, the trips you take back to the drawing board will seem shorter and easier, maybe even like a trip to the beach.

We can`t always be winners the first time around. It takes a while to learn, to experiment and to fine-tune. We often get frustrated; we may even entertain giving up because of the idea of failing. But, as the saying goes, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” And the tough sometimes go back to the drawing board several times before getting in right, before they reach their goals and can celebrate their successes.

According to all the legends and story books the principal factor in success is perseverance. Personally, I think there is nothing in it. If anything, the truth lies the other way.

If you can`t do a thing, more or less, the first time you try, you will never do it. Try something else while there is yet time.
