Failure? Good? Surely not?
It took me a while to get this... that failure was useful. Well it took failing. Unfortunately (or fortunately) a maths exam in second year was my first proper failure. and yes it was hard to take!
But actually corny as it is. You know you're practicing if you fail. Like when you ski, you are only learning when you fall sometimes. Or when you try inversions! I've fallen on my nose SO MANY TIMES! trying to do a forearm stand. And its the getting up and failing a little better that makes it a learning curve.
So corny. But so true!
