Head Lights

wac-2At this time of year, stress levels can be elevated, when the pressure of examinations and impending report grades increases. Let us discourage girls from perfectionism and the fear of failure as it can hinder them from achieving their potential. Successful people are resilient and accept that failure is an inevitable, even welcome, part of life. If parents try to ensure that their child never fails, they are doing her a disservice. I heard this said by a conference speaker (Sue Lindsay) recently: failure is feedback – it’s a blueprint for change. Failure should refine us, not define us. Wise words!
