Rochester SAGE - Supporting Advanced & Gifted Education

Heinlein Quote

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life.  And that is why I succeed. – Michael Jordan

The pupil who is never required to do what he cannot do, never does what he can do. – John Stuart Mill

I want my kids to fail.  That probably isn’t at the top of your list for your kids, but it should be.  Failure is one of the most important experiences they will ever have.  The road to success is paved with failure because failure teaches us how to succeed.

  1. That is kind of like if you have to work for it you appericate it. If life is handed to you for free and free stops you will not know what to do to live in your life. Can can do and can’t can’t and probably never will.
    Makes you wonder how many people in this world have gone bad because they were not taught how to do anything.

    Mr. Smith, your blog post reminds me of a similar statement by another athlete (who was not even supposed to be born): “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work.” (Tim Tebow)
