Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

Do Not Be Discouraged By Failure
Do not be discouraged by a failure. This can be a positive experience. Failure is, in a sense, the highway to success. Inasmuch as every discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly what is true; every fresh experience points out some form of error which we shall afterwards carefully avoid. If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down but the staying down. I cannot give you a sure-fire formula for success, but I can give you a formula for failure: try to please everybody all the time.
