Another example. In the 1971 war, three Corps of India were involved in the eastern theatre of operations, i.e., in Bangladesh. Out of these three Corps, 4 Corps reached Dhaka from Agartala. 2 Corps from Krishnagar completed its assigned task. On the other hand, 33 Corps from Shiliguri was least successful due to various topographical and other reasons. Nowadays, in military colleges, maximum stress is being given on the operations of 33 Corps so that military commanders can learn from mistakes/failures.
So we can conclusively say that we learn more from failures than from successes.
Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.

Even this challenging situation would ease
In order to achieve success, we have to go through a lot of failures. Sucess teaches us nothing. Once you attained success you're content. You won't strive for betterment anymore. Success is the most a man can achieve after all.
But failure lets you know your incompetence. It shows you that you're not good enough. It is a measure of things wrong with you.
The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.
