Why Failure Actually Precedes Success? – Most people think when they win a particular challenge that is the end of the game. Well, most individuals tend to slumber after a win.
If you asked me I’d say the sooner the change that ideology the better because nothing good comes easy and even after it does come, good things don’t stay forever, they give way for the bad thus the cycle of life continues.
Failure doesn’t precede success because we crave it or design it so, No! Most winners don’t rest after a particular win yet they still fail why?

Often times we expect the next challenge we will face to be as easy as the ones we’d conquered but when they do surface we realize they are more than we envisioned. Life doesn’t always give us what we wish for, so sometimes most failures we face I’d say was fated to be but as Richard Cypher once said “We make our fate” so the idea about fate would sound controversial.
Even though we thus fail, success equally also does precede failure, you should know why. This is because having failed, you understand the pain and shame of failing, the next resolve is to buckle up and try other means.
