Hi,
What is the difference between "result from" and "stem from"? Is "stem from" used for bad effects generally?

Thanks.

Many times they can mean the same, many times there is a slight difference in nuance.

My strongness is a result from my diligent training.
My strongness stems from my childhood accident. I fell into a magig potion.
