Tell us about your biggest failure.

I think the term “biggest failure” is relative to the circumstances in which it is set.  We are human.  We all want to know a person’s “biggest” failure as well and the biggest success, too.  However, I think the only time you truly fail is when you cannot or simply refuse to learn from your experiences, including the mistakes.  I prefer to think that most experiences teach me something and I develop a clearer perspective.
