you failed, but it was the desired outcome of the situation, which is not not necessarily considered as succeeding

Failed by self-sabotage. People do this all the time.

I agree with bhramarraj. Failure and success need context.

 

In A Knight's Tale, the movie, not Chaucer, William loses match after match to win the heart of Jocelyn.

 

Granted she can't act her way out of a paper bag. But that is a successful failure I'd sign up for. ;)

You have succeeded in your attempt to fail to succeed. Wow, that one could go round and round forever, couldn't it?
