New Delhi: FailWise: “Failure” is a word that always brings a negative sense to our mind. But we hardly understand the fact that it paves the real foundation of our success. We all experience “Failure” right from our childhood. Society has taught us to attach connotations to words. We have been conditioned to believe that success is positive and failures are negative. However, experiences are never black and white. It is a colour palette, the full rainbow, some might say. Each colour is an experience that must be enjoyed, lived, and felt.
“Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass. It’s about learning how to dance in the rain.” – Vivian Greene.
We are pleased to introduce “FailWise” (A New Delhi-based venture of Scipreneur Pvt. Ltd.) a platform that welcomes emotions, experiences, and journeys that people often don’t share. FailWise is a social blogging platform for collaborative learning where you can learn better before you start.
“Join us as we celebrate mistakes and endeavour to learn from them. We welcome stories and journeys unheard and unsung. We want to hear and learn from your struggles and challenges. You can share your short ideas/ stories in the form of articles, videos, or image quotes. Alternatively, you can contact us, and we will draft or record your story on your behalf,” said Founder Vijay Soni, Ph.D.
Brandon Mull represents a clear philosophy of FailWise, “Smart people learn from their mistakes. But the real sharp ones learn from the mistakes of others.”
How FailWise started?
Like Elon Musk says, “Failures are a sign that you are inventing”. We learn best when we are curious. Curiosity welcomes adventures and results in great knowledge. On the way to our “curious” journey, we may sometimes succeed and sometimes fail. Most of our learnings come out of curiosity which is accompanied by many new adventurous processes that can result in great knowledge. Sometimes we call it success or lessons or sometimes “Failures”.
“Success is overrated, and failures are neglected”, therefore we thought of starting a platform where you can share the wisdom from your failures and everyone can learn from them,” said Soni — a microbiologist.
He said, “as a researcher, we face many failures every day, that we wished we knew them before”. FailWise is planning to bring out many of those learnings, experiences, opinions, and stories that matter to all of us. FailWise is actively raising voice against many social issues like dowry, gender biasedness, women’s rights and education, child labour, and pseudo-social dogmas.

FailWise is also organizing “TUF Talks” (Tell You Fail) where selected authors, stories, and people will be invited to talk on stage or online. As Heath says, “The quickest road to success is to possess an attitude toward failure of ‘no fear’. FailWise will aspire to spread that attitude so that you will never look at “failure” as a bad end, but a beautiful starting.
