A fault is synonymous to mistake and error, although these words differ in context depending upon how they are being applied. A fault may be caused by misjudgment, negligence, and forgetfulness. When one is at fault, it may be because someone is ignorant, not paying attention, or is judging things poorly. It is considered to be a weakness, or a shortcoming, or even a mistake.

In life, everybody experiences faults and failures. "My fault" is a common expression in the English language. The word fault itself refers to a mistake caused due to forgetting or misjudging a situation. Failure is not being able to meet a goal or objective. A fault can be seen as a weakness of one's character at that point of time, which can result in failure if the mistake continues long term.

Failure doesn't always have to have a bad connotation to it. Good failures could be doing everything right but still losing in the end, such as studying all week for a test but not passing it. Yet, faults are always negative.
