    I prefer not failing and just winning. Where’s that option?

    Do you know why that is? Tv, games and stories. All they do is talk about the dude who got lucky. The dude who won the lotto. They never talk about what rally makes people who they are. It isn't peoples fault they suck, it is media.

    What people like me experience: Fail x ∞, Win x 0.

    With some more failing after, just for good measure. Builds character.

    It's like adult-me vs. baby-me. Adult me doesn't even bother trying, or tries once, fails, gets embarrassed or frustrated and gives up. Baby-me failed, failed, failed, failed [parent stepped in to prevent injury] failed, failed, failed, and eventually got there.

    it's so interesting when you fail, if sucks in the moment but your body re-adjusts so that the next time you fail you "fail better". I did this with lifting weights and realized that you NEED to fail in order to lift even heavier than before.

    Ugh, this is so true. Learning to [deal with failure](https://www.lifebygrit.com/blog/dealing-with-failure) is one of the most important steps to success. So often those failures teach us what we need to do to be successful, and we wouldn't be able to be successful without the lessons that come from failure. Practice failing. Fail early. Fail small. Learn to take the lessons from those failures and apply them moving forward, rather than dwelling on the failure. That's the key. Failure isn't the end. It's a stepping stone.

    Why not use "succeed" instead of "win"? Or "lose" instead of "fail". The opposite of fail is not win...

    I'm only 22 but I've learned that plan B...or plan C/D/E/F/G almost always turns out better than the original plan. There will always be times in life when nothing seems to work out, but I've looked back and seen that maybe things ended up working for the better in the end. For example, I didn't get my first choice of internship site. I really only wanted to be there because it was the closest to my family and boyfriend. But, I went to a better facility further away and I'm so grateful to be there because it's a larger place/more exposure to different things. Then, I didn't get the first job I sent an application to. But, I ended up getting a job in a larger hospital with a better vibe!
