This episode is all about failure.

If you put failure into google it will come back with quotes from inspirational people about how important failure is.  But we dive into the complexities around failure and how we both agree that yes, it is important, but there are other factors to consider, creating a positive environment, how we can plan for failure and a quote that I found when researching the podcast from Gary Vaynerchuck about micro failure vs macro success, which I love and what this means for us as parents, coaches and teachers.

“I’d argue that I didn’t really fail, I learned I might have micro failed, but I macro won” - Gary Vaynerchuck

“I can accept failure, but I can’t accept not trying again” - Michael Jordan

When in search of a great quote, Michael Jordan is my go-to!

During this episode, we give our take on failure and how we can use failure in parenting, teaching and coaching to help make our children resilient, and patient and have the personal characteristic to use failure as a building block to success and reaching their potential.
