As you know, being successful is not easy. You won't necessarily succeed at everything the first time you try. That's OK. Some of the most successful people in the world are the ones who've had the most failures. J. K. Rowling's first Harry Potter book was rejected twelve times before it was finally published. Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team, and he lost hundreds of games and missed thousands of shots during his career. But he once said, "I have failed over and over again in my life. And that's why I succeed." These people succeeded because they understand that you can't let your failures define you. You have to let them teach you. You have to let them show you what to do differently next time.

what is the most probable topic in the passage above?
[FONT=&#54620]①Act as if it were impossible to fail. [/FONT]
[FONT=&#54620]②The longest way round is the shortest way home.[/FONT]
[FONT=&#54620]③You don't know what you've got until you've lost it[/FONT]
[FONT=&#54620]④ See failures as experiences instead of roadblocks. [/FONT]
[FONT=&#54620]⑤Success follows doing what you want to do.[/FONT]

I think the answer is No.4 and that's the topic of the passage.

It tells you that failures can be stepping stones rather than obstacles.

If you don't understand this, You can send me a message and I can help you in Korean.

Thanks, but I need an opinion of English native speaker.

The way of thinking could be different from ours.
