For any football fan, it was a familiar feeling. A tense Cup final, a single goal margin, and your team on the wrong side of the score line. This year it was the turn of the England Lionesses. After the heroic exploits of last year it was a tough bump back down to reality.
Although failure may live in the waking nightmares of every GCSE and A-Level student, every would be writer and scientist, it can build the necessary resilience to improve. The maestro of failure, Samuel Beckett's advice rings true in every context, “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”
In light of the Lionesses' historic World Cup run, voters explored failure and success.They considered comfort zones, fear of failure, and setbacks.
Secondary, 16+ & College voters were asked: “Are you scared of failure?”, while Primary 7-11 voters considered: “Are you resilient when things don’t go to plan?”, and Primary 5-7 voters discussed: “Do you know how to deal with feeling disappointed?”
When things don't go the way you want them to, you have to be resilient and persevere through difficulties.
Failing is the first attempt in learning; without failing, you can't succeed!
Everyone learns from failure, so we shouldn't be scared of failure and instead learn to succeed from your mistakes.
