Failure is determined by conditioning. Think about it. You generally view your parents as successful. You want to be like them. You try to be like them, and one day they tell you that all your trying and hard work is not good enough. You try harder, attempting to muddle your way through life not doing the things they give you trouble for. They still don't think it's good enough. You try more, thinking constantly about how to make them happy and proud. You lose sleep, you stress while doing schoolwork and chores. You become obsessed with the idea of them being proud of you. They never do though. Your obsession causes the other aspects of your life to go downhill, and they become more disappointed in you. Eventually it all becomes too much. You stress to your breaking point. Collapse is imminent.
"We always loved her" they say to the people crowded at your funeral. "She made us so proud. We had no idea" All through sobs of despair. You echo their cries, finally feeling accepted by the people you only wanted to make love you.
