Like death, failure is inevitable. Failure is present all the time, but we always try to avoid it because we do not want to experience it. At one point in someone’s life, he or she will fail at something, but this will be a learning experience that will help them succeed. However, why is it hard for people to accept failure?
Teachers do not tell students to fail; they tell them to do well. Therefore, when students take a test, quiz or do their homework, they do not want to make mistakes because this might lead to a bad grade, which is considered as failure.
As a result, this causes students to be really harsh on themselves, which might make them give up. The reason why teachers should teach students to fail is because it will help them succeed. It will help students understand and accept that it is OK to fail, and instead of giving up, they will keep going.
Learn to fail, keep going and be successful!
