Many experts believe resilience, or the ability to overcome failure, has many positive benefits for physical and emotional health. One way to increase resilience is to view failure as a learning opportunity rather than an insurmountable setback. Here are a few definitions of failure that can help people make the most out of their mistakes.

Failure is common: The perfect result is almost never achieved on the first try. The average entrepreneur goes through nearly four failed projects before becoming successful.

Failure is a side effect of progress: When starting a new task or experiment, it is normal to have high failure rates. Information from each failure adds to the body of knowledge that will eventually result in a successful outcome.

Failure is something to celebrate: It is important to recognize that success is not only an end result but also the culmination of a series of failures. Failing demonstrates positive personal qualities such as risk-taking, self-confidence, curiosity, and creativity.
