My Understanding of Failure
This famous quote from J. Burroughs conveys that when faced with failure, we should reflect on ourselves instead of putting the blame on others, which is more important than failure itself.
When entering high school, many classmatesfound it really difficult to learn maths and did poorly in exams. They blamed it on the teacher rather than themselves, which resulted in even poorer performance. I was no exception. However, when I realized complaining made no sense, I adjusted my learning methods and turned to the teacher whenever I encountered difficult problems. Gradually, I began to make progress, which in turn boosted my confidence in maths.
The lesson I have drawn from this experience is that only by bravely taking full responsibility for failure rather than blaming others can we succeed.
