Treating Failure: Introduce the Topic well! 
Failure is when individuals are unable to meet the desirable or intended objective.  We ourselves are the only ones who can label what we make out of our failure. Our failure can be our stepping stone if we take it as a chance of self improvement. It is like a trial in an experiment. It depends on our own judgment. Failure can be a delay but not defeat. However, if one loses heart and the willingness to improve then it becomes our stumbling blocks.


Failure as a Stepping Stone:

Failure as Stumbling Block

  • In Bible and in Politics, stumbling block is a metaphor for a behavior or attitude that directs individuals to another sin or to destructive behavior.
  • Those who fail to identify the cause of their failure and respond promptly, lose mental composure are most likely to trigger more unfavorable outcomes.
  • Ego can exhaust one of individuals’ true capabilities as it defers the process of self improvement.  One should push through hard times and failure without ego.
  • The fear of failure is the biggest stumbling block as individuals give up on themselves. Suicide is an instance where one quits trying.  
  • Having No Goals is the biggest stumbling block as efforts are not channelized in the right direction.

Conclude with a Positive Note
Failure teaches us what not to do and can be a stepping stone towards becoming more productive. One should learn to embrace their flaws by taking it as a feedback and not as the ultimate chance.  And like Edison said ““No, I did not fail. I discovered 24,999 ways that the storage battery does not work.”, one should be optimistic & constantly make efforts to improve performance as opportunities can arrive at any time and turn our failure into success stories.
