Learning from our failures
Posted: Mon 11 Sep 2017 | Assemblies
Did you know Michael Jordan was dropped from his school basket team, Steve Jobs was fired, Walt Disney was told he had no imagination, Oprah Winfrey was told she was no good for TV, Steven Speilberg failed to get into film school three times and JK Rawlings had her books rejected many times? This morning we talked about how we all make mistakes and often fail at things before we succeed. I asked the teachers to send children to see me who overcome their failings this week. I have already seen one little boy who has managed to join up his letters and stop putting capital letters in the middle of his words this morning. Failure is a great teacher, one of the best in fact!
