Technically we would all be failures from birth if we viewed failure as a child the same way we view it as an adult. I mean none of us got walking on the first try, and even once we "got it" we still messed up. I quit things when they start to get difficult because I'm afraid to fail. If I was born with that idea I would have just crawled and gave up on walking.
