Do not glamorize failure.

Sure everyone fails at some point, and you do need to learn from it. But it is not something to treat as a positive.

It is popular to look at successful people’s failure as a way to legitimize your own. Failure is not necessarily a sign you are on the way to success. At some point you have to admit things are not working and change them. Racking up a score of failures does not help that. People who have had a series of failures and then succeeded are outliers. Get off the failure track as soon as possible; there is no glamour there.
