I think it is an ego thing, like how can someone be an expert or guru and learn by a mistake? The truth is, that is how you get to be an expert. I asked my mentor what he learned from all his success. His answer, "Not nearly as much as I have from my failures"

As Tod said Anne, it can be an ego thing or more are likely it is people fair of failure and the feelings associated with it. I personally never like to fail but over time I have learnt to handle disappointments in life better.
