In itself, no. The idea that all stories are success stories, but that success is free from setbacks and disappointments is far from reality. Making mistakes is human; continuing to commit new ones is perhaps even more so. Any success story – from the child who is learning to walk and taking his first steps, to expeditions to the moon, to the publication of Harry Potter books – is the result of a path strewn with mistakes, stumbling stones and bitter disappointments. What matters is putting ourselves in the right conditions (both in terms of mindset, skills, and tools) to effectively identify and analyse failures, developing and practicing specific learning strategies that will help us shape our success.
