Attitudes to failure

Many of us do not dare try something different or something out of the ordinary simply because of the fear of failing. I know I have had countless experiences that later in life I would slap myself for not daring to try. I was sent a video today which encapsulated the need for us to persevere and to approach apparent failures as simply not having succeeded yet!

I hope you would enjoy this video too and I hope that every dad will be encouraged to accept his own failures and move on. Teach our children that there should not be a stigma on failures and that every encounter is an opportunity to make ourselves a better person.

The next time you feel nervous about taking the road less travelled, think of those who have gone before and have succeeded through perseverance.

Have a fruitful 2009.
