The loudness of success and the silence of failure

Success and failure are somewhat related. Yet, we seem to only talk about the first one mostly.
That’s rather normal. There might be something interesting about spectacular failures, but most of the failures are flat—just failures. Someone tried and failed.
Successes are naturally more interesting. Or at least worth our attention if we have ambitions.
The ironic part is - when you read Twitter or pretty much anything social-media - you’ll think everyone’s there successful. Well. Most of the successful people talk about it in some way, so you hear them. Most of the people who’re not successful don’t talk about it, so you’ll think they don’t exist.
I just wanted to share this perspective. I hope what you’ll hear from me will not put you down.
