Failing is not an option in my book. It's a learning process that will make each of us smarter because of it. Understanding that being a lifelong learner results in being uncomfortable sometimes, is a good sign you are on the right path to success!!
Take a look at the below Sketchnote (Credit:Sylvia Duckworth) and really think about all the pieces that go into being successful.
We need to remember to dig down deep and look at the root of success to see what it really takes. There is hard work, sacrifice, disappointment, persistence, developing good habits, and a dedication involved in being successful that no one may never see. However, by sharing and owning those failures, learning from disappointments, being that persistent educator, and developing those good habits will result in a successful, engaging environment where students witness what success looks like!! Be that educator that understands what it takes to be successful and begin constructing your iceberg today!
