I am delighted to join and lend my support.
I can claim to be something of an expert on the subject of "failure".
Although I have several University degrees and 4 fellowships, I was an 11 plus failure.
During 1992 to 1996 I completed a higher reseach Masters Degree in Education at the Manchester Metropolitan University and the title of my disertation (that is in MMU LIbrary) is "From Failure to Success".
Happy to assist.
