Why you should let your child fail and make mistakes

Why you should let your child fail and make mistakesWhy you should let your child fail and make mistakes is an interesting statement, don’t you think? It might sound counter-intuitive but it really does actually make sense, if you think about it carefully.

Frequently children are taught that to fail is inherently a bad thing; something about which they should almost feel a sense of shame.

The adults around them presumably believe that this will in some way motivate them to work so hard that they don’t fail.

However, failure is inevitable, at least occasionally.

So however well-intentioned adults might be in their approach, in my opinion, the logic of stigmatizing mistakes is at best misguided.

The problem is that it encourages children to adopt a strategy of not trying, so they don’t fail. If they don’t try then they can’t fail, right?

Teach them this approach and kids have an easy way to neutralise any problem in future. Just don’t bother in the first place. But how can that be a good thing?

If they don’t try, how can they ever master any skill, or indeed anything?

If they don’t rise to a challenge, how will they ever grow in character?

No one ever started out as a master of anything. It doesn’t matter which line of work you consider or which subject you study, every expert started out as a complete beginner.

And it doesn’t matter how talented you are, you’ll still make mistakes and experience failures along the road to mastering your craft.

However, the lessons you learn from failure are far more valuable to you than anything anyone can tell you. You can read textbooks as many times as you like but there’s no substitute for real experience.

When you get your fingers burned you never forget how it happened and why. In other words, a lesson learned.

Success is never achieved without some failures along the way.

Every successful man or woman will tell you that. It really is inevitable and it’s all part of life and learning. It’s how we gain that valuable commodity known as experience.

There’s actually no such thing as failure.

There are only outcomes we didn’t want. And every time we try, we refine our skills and know-how until eventually we get it right.

What we refer to as failure is nothing more than a form of feedback.

And of course trying something and failing does not make you a failure. Failure’s an outcome, it’s never a person.

Remember this: It’s better to try and fail than to spend your life wondering what might have been.

Put simply, you cannot fail. Either you’ll succeed or you’ll learn a lesson but either way you’ll win.

You only become a ‘failure’ when you give up and stop trying.

So if you have children, encourage them to do their best and accept that they will fail occasionally. Tell them that it doesn’t matter as long as they make sure they learn any lessons that follow from any given undesirable outcome.

Make sure they understand that to fail is positive because they’ll learn valuable lessons and they’ll get better and grow the more they try. Children should never fear failure.

Just encourage them not to give up and make sure they never stop believing in themselves. All young people need encouragement more than they need critics.

The most important message to your child is that they are as good as anyone and, if they try and keep trying, they’ll succeed eventually.

And if after trying hard it doesn’t work out for them, for whatever reason, then at least they’ll know that they gave it their best shot and they won’t spend their lives wondering what might have been.

Teach your children that failure is an inevitable part of life and learning and it should never be feared.

If you want your children to succeed in life then encourage them to fail.

Encourage them to have a go and to keep trying until they get to where they want to be.

And remember this too: Kids should not fear failure but neither should you either.

Wherever you are on life’s journey, never be afraid to have a go. Never forget, you’re as good as anyone and people who try hard are better than most. This is a mantra you should encourage your kids to repeat to themselves daily, and you should repeat it too.

15 quotes to inspire you to think bigger

Quotes to inspire you to think biggerIf you’re thinking anyway then you might as well think big, or so the saying goes.

Far too many people underestimate their ability; what they can do; and what they can achieve.

If you want to make your mark on this world then you’ll need to think big. You’ll need to make a difference. You’ll need to stand out head and shoulders above the crowd.

That can be a lonely place to be, of course. However, the rewards can be extraordinary.

Rewards can be in terms of recognition but they can also be financial too. And let’s not forget that such rewards have the potential to include your place in history.

Does that sound a little too dramatic?

Well other people leave their mark on history, so why not you?

Too many people fear trying in case they fail. However, there is no such thing as failure, just opportunities to learn, to hone your skills and then have another go with a better understanding of what will and won’t work.

You must believe in yourself dear reader. Self-belief is an essential ingredient for success. Others don’t need to believe in you but you must feel you have whatever it takes to do it, whatever it is.

You’re as good as anyone and, if you dig deep, you’ve got what it takes.

Here are 15 quotes to inspire you to think bigger.

Quotes to inspire you to think biggerQuotes to inspire you to think bigger:

  1. Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them. ~Albert Einstein
  2. Courage is like a muscle; it’s strengthened by use. ~Ruth Gordon
  3. Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit. ~Conrad Hilton
