When we think of the word “failure” it can often bring up thoughts of inadequacy, not being good enough, or being unsuccessful in a particular aspect of life. Many times children feel if they don’t get the answer right the first time or make a mistake when learning a new skill, that somehow they have failed.
What if, instead of viewing mistakes or failure as something negative that indicates a deficit we possess, we begin to view it as an opportunity? Imagine that - failure is an opportunity! An opportunity for growth, an opportunity to learn and thoroughly understand, an opportunity to achieve something great!
