    The Secrets Behind Failure | Luke Reynolds | Episode 197

    42:18

    “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” The sentiment is admirable and practical; realistically, you shouldn’t expect to succeed the first time at something you’ve never done before. However, our current cultural pressures regarding success and failure do expect that very thing, and nowhere is that pressure showing more effects than in our kids—in school, in extra-curriculars, in college applications, even in hobbies that should be purely for fun. We forget that in order to learn, you have to fail—and that’s where Luke Reynolds comes in. He joins Mighty Parenting podcast host Sandy Fowler to help us readjust our own views on failure, learning and success; and to teach us how to help our kids re-learn that failing the first time doesn’t make them a failure as a person or at life.
