Success gains us useless Trophies

Failure, a dictionary would describe it as an antagonist but clearly not all failures result to a bad ending. Why is failure given so much of importance in a ruthless way?
Failure, is I feel a way to go back a step so that you can leap forwards into a bigger area. Even while jumping, people bend down to spring forward. Why is that a worthy thing? - Because it allows you to dive farther.
I have never declined my failure, because I think it suggested that at least I tried. Your parents or teachers might have made you feel blue by the way they would have reacted to a failure, and this itself I think resulted into us making failure a villain. It is not believe me.
How many times have you tried something and it didn’t work? - A lot probably, for me too. This doesn’t mean we didn’t put in efforts; it means we accepted what was wrong and we strained to fix and re-do it. Having an achievement in your hand on the very first try, sometimes sounds fishy to me.
No one is born to be perfect but neither imperfect. So next time you hear someone expressing failure as immoral, be sure to stand up and say that:
‘I believe failure gains us experience and success a trophy. There would be no space for too many trophies; but there would always be space for experiences in life - in a practical way.’

If you get a -F it doesn't mean your a horrible person. You learn from your mistakes. Not a single person in the world is always smart and never gets something wrong. We all get F's and feel ashamed of our selfs. We all make mistakes just try harder next time. Never quit. Just try harder.

Perfect precision, Chaitali, and very well written; and the ending statement summed it all up. I'd have gone with a more theatrical opening, though. All in all, a point well put. Congrats!

This is a truly beautiful piece! Well done, it is very inspirational and filled with emotion; you definitely caught my attention with this. I think everyone can relate to this particular piece in one way or another, and the metaphor of success being a trophy is a wonderful topic to write about. Well done, I look forward to read more! :)
