Success vs Failure
Success and Failure are two words in the English language that differ in their meanings by a great degree. In fact they are treated as opposites. Success consists in the achievement or the realization of one’s goal.
Failure on the other hand consists in the non-achievement or the non-realization of one’s goal. Success brings happiness whereas failure brings about sorrow.
It is generally said that failures are the stepping stones for success. Success is normally the result of hard work. On the other hand failure is the result of lack of hard work and perseverance.
Success will make one active and charged. On the other hand failure would make one dull and struck with remorse. Success results from concentration whereas failure results from lack of concentration.
Success results in honor whereas failure results in insult. This only shows the fact that success and honor are associated with each other. On the other hand failure and insult are associated with each other.
Philosophers give a solution to the handling of the two states success and failure. They would say that a man of resolute would take both success and failure alike. He is neither overwhelmed by success nor bothered to a great extent by failure. He would do well to have a philosophical perspective while understanding the two terms success and failure.
It is easy to take success in your stride whereas it is very difficult to take failure in your stride. This is because of the element of disappointment associated with failure. A successful man gets confidence whereas a man characterized by failures lacks confidence.
Success and failure are in fact two aspects of life that are not permanent. On the other hand they are two transitory states of mind that should be dealt with accordingly. They are two psychological states.
J J W Jr. says
The smallest thing known (or unbeknownst) by man is the difference between success and failure.
