Failure is part of the process of success. No one has succeeded who has never failed. Failure is a compulsory course in the pursuit of success. Even Jesus preached in some places where he was rejected and could therefore do no mighty works.
However, when failure becomes recurrent at the edge of major breakthrough or success, a satanic influence may be responsible. For example, a man makes all the efforts, and all prospects indicate success, but suddenly at the very edge of success, failure shows its ugly face. This is the experience of failure at the edge of success. It is often the manifestation of embargo or barrier demons. Sometimes, an anti-success curse may also be at work. Personal and identificational repentance is often necessary before confronting these devious spirits in prayer warfare.

Moreover, the word of the LORD came unto me, saying. The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you… (Zechariah 4:6-9).

(Hebrew 12:1-2).
