“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default.” — J.K. Rowling
“There is nothing like a perfect journey in life there are always challenges, up and downs and storms of various kinds in business, marriage, dreams, academics, careers etc. Every success story has a tale behind it. Not everyone likes the taste of failure even children.
When everything we once thought we had seems to disappear into thin air, life turns upside down for us because we failed. Some of us recover from it while some allow that experience to get the best of them. I remembered writing my O’Level examinations for seven times. Yeah! Each time I sat for the exams, I always didn’t get my Mathematics and accounts.
Persistence and believing the best of myself at my worse moments got me where I am today. Most achievements never come easy and am sure a lot of us will have something to say too. I honestly don’t wish that my children experience all I went through or worse but we can’t determine what life will throw at them. We can only prepare them ahead and pray for them.
As our children get older whether we like it or not, there will come a time in their lives when they will begin to think about trying new things, ideas, their future career, wealth, their education, the kind of life they want to live and so on – their dreams can be huge.
We as parents need to know that the possibility of our children experiencing failure at one point or the other will occur. We should not see failure as a source of pain , regret or disappointment in our child(ren), instead as an opportunity for him or her to show more intelligence.
Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.
