The other day my husband showed our son this famous TV commercial. It’s a great message. Take a minute to watch it if you’ve never seen it.
When I picked my son up from school yesterday, failure was the first topic he wanted to talk about. (This is just more proof that he is my son. ;)) We discussed the benefits of failing. He asked me to share with him again one of my favorite quotes. And, I told him:
Falling down doesn’t make you a failure…staying down does.
I am my hardest critic. I hate failing. Yet after 40 years of living, I know that failure has grown me in ways that success has never been able to do. I am currently going through a season of learning…which has a tendency to both frighten and excite me.
If I fail today, I want to remember…”I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life…and that is why I succeed” ~Michael Jordan
