It is very rare for us to fail. We only choose to stop trying. Failure is not always defined by losing everything you have. Failure exists when you are not performing at your best, which in turn, produces undesired results. True success comes from knowing you had to go through something to get where you are, and who you are, is revealed by what you do on subsequent attempts.
All success comes at a price. There is no success without risk of failure, no reward without effort, and no opportunity without criticism. Those that succeed never stop trying until they reach their goal. Failure is not something to fear or worry about, because everything we do has a lesson behind it. The real failure is not missing the mark, but in missing the lesson along the way.
