No one can fail who seeks to reach the truth.
Failure is all about you while you seek for goals that cannot be achieved. You look for permanence in the impermanent, for love where there is none, for safety in the midst of danger; immortality within the darkness of the dream of death. Who could succeed where contradiction is the setting of his searching, and the place to which he comes to find stability?
Goals that are meaningless are not attained. There is no way to reach them, for the means by which you strive for them are meaningless as they are. Who can use such senseless means, and hope through them to gain in anything? Where can they lead? And what could they achieve that offers any hope of being real? Pursuit of the imagined leads to death because it is the search for nothingness, and while you seek for life you ask for death. You look for safety and security, while in your heart you pray for danger and protection for the little dream you made.

The interval of hesitation that exists between your initial Life-impulse and its eventual implementation or rejection may seem like a little thing, but when you consider how many such intervals exist in the course of an average day, and how much collective human energy is poured into these intervals, it is staggering. This is the opening through which your entire species is being drained of its very life-substance. In order to do the work that is ahead, you cannot afford such waste.
