I have to sit through another group of speeches and one line summaries of
students' future plans today. And many of them will want to take time off
or travel or live in france or japan. Who's going to pay for that? I know
they don't get the opportunity to fail much anymore in school, but when I
hear all these things I suspect they are going to get plenty year one out of
"Learning to fail requires motivation to pursue your dreams and deepest
convictions about the things you love, your loyalties and your values. That
should be what guides one's life, not material things or what others may
think about you. " Noble sentiments indeed. But in today's United
States as Florez should know, health care access isn the tail that wags the dog.
Don't take a chance to do something interesting if it endangers your
health coeverage. What a crappy system we have!
Any successful person will tell you that they learned much from their failures
but that they kept trying. If you insulate people from their failures you have
not helped them, you have actually deprived them from what would have been their
most productive learning moments. Its called tough love! Our next President
needs to teach this concept to our nation! Without it, we will never be a great
country again! Liberals get “compassion” confused with achievement
and where and how personal achievements come from because they do not understand
the purpose of failure!
