From failure to failure

Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm. - This is one of my favorite quotes by Winston Churchill.

Since March, I decided to use this time to study some music that I've never thought I could play because of difficulties - technically , musically, requiring big hands, or complicated scores, etc. As I posted before, one of pieces is Chopin Etude Op. 25 No.11. For the last two months, I've been struggling with it a great deal. I think this piece requires somewhat athletic strength. As you know, I have "non athletic fingers" . Should I pat on the shoulder to say "You did good because at least you tried...." I'm losing my enthusiasm... I hope I can see the light at end of tunnel someday...
