We only live to fail

Success has swallowed up our world. Being successful is the ultimate dream of us all. Before achieving self-awareness, we dread failure and learn how to sacrifice ourselves at the glorious gates of success. This may help us win some victories but we are, indeed, continuous losers. The time has come to re-evaluate success and failure in order to win back life and a humane world. Can we fight for failure and be victorious? Isn’t failure the secure main artery to success?
