By Sol B. Making mistakes is part of life and the reason for most people’s success. I’ve endured many failures, but one in particular stands out. It was a freshman year and I had to take my first global test in high school. That night, I studied as much as I thought was enough to succeed. The next morning as I started taking the test, it downed on me, I didn’t study hard enough. As a result I failed. So, I set a goal for myself to study as much as I possibly could. I made review sheet, index cards and memorized all my notes. It was all worth it because I ended up getting a 95! The lesson that many forget is, if you never fail you will never learn your faults. Failure equals success, it’s just that simple.
