Failure Is the Mother of Success
The proverb “Sometimes you have to fall before you can fly” conveys such a moral that failure comes first, followed by success, namely, failure is the mother of success. This rule holds true for many cases in our life. When someone does something, he often fails before he can overcome obstacles and then move forward. Just think of the story of the great inventor Thomas Edison. He failed 10,000 times before he invented the electric light. The voluminous personal papers of Edison revealed that his inventions typically did not spring to life in a flash of inspiration but evolved slowly from previous works. It is believed that sometimes a series of apparent failures are really followed by successes.
In the long journey of life，we will inevitably encounter all kinds of difficulties and obstacles. We should have a doom unbeatable faith and determined will and be not afraid of falling in order to climb to the peak. Please remember if we want to fly freely in the sky of success, we have to fall first.
