Enjoying success comes easy, managing failure is tough unless you are trained to manage it. Yes, failure would still be a failure, but knowing how to manage it contains the impact and, at times, makes it less painful. Managing failure with a positive demeanor offers strong possibility of a plethora of new opportunities opening up.
Our kids need to learn not to take failure as final or personally. Failure is more often than not a process failure and offers a room for correction or another attempt. Each failure needs an investigation, an assessment and a course correction road map. With these three essentials in place it is time to stop dwelling and start working all over again. This approach works best to get kids going again and winning.
Have to handle failures with a stout heart – APJ Abdul Kalam
