What precedes success? What precedes success in relationships, in business, in life?
Which means that failure isn’t failure, right?
Which is fascinating, because in lashon hakodesh, the language that created reality, there is no word for failure.
If there’s no word for failure in Hashem’s dictionary, that means it doesn’t exist.
He wants us to realize that the purpose of confusion is clarity, the purpose of illness is recovery, the purpose of the mistakes we make is teshuvah.
