Failing Gracefully

“Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failing is another stepping stone to greatness.” ~ Oprah Winfrey
We put our heart and soul into an idea or an execution, but many-a-times the idea/execution fails. It is not the end of the road, however. It doesn’t make you a failure, right? We might be defined by our successes, but our failures form the crucial experiences that we need. Although, it only happens when we accept failure gracefully.
Kids are tender hearts, and they may take failures a little too sensitively. They may rebuke themselves or blame others for it. But in this way, they shall never learn. People often give up when they are so close to a win, all because of the probable embarrassment that they may suffer if they fail. We must teach our kids, how to take failure gracefully. Only then will they bounce back up and show the world, who they really are.
