I asked my kids this question today.
Not to make them feel bad.
Not to teach them about the abundant "glorified failure" stuff out there.
But to understand that's how they can learn about themselves and life.
About what works and what doesn't work in their lives.
I failed today.
I failed at chin-ups. I did three.
I wanted to do five.
But I learned that I could do three and that I can show up do as many as I do.
My son said that he failed regarding raising his voice. He said that he doesn't like to raise his voice and he's working on it.
