Failure is a learning step

I believe more and more schools should teach their students that learning is not all about grades and passing exams. Students should know that grades don’t actually show who a person or what a person knows.

And another important thing is teaching about failure and it’s naturalness. When you learn to walk, learn to skate, learn to write, it’s a process or trial and error. You try lots of times to succeed once. So you celebrate the fact that you made it, but you also need to realize that it took you a great number of times to do it. And of course, the fact that you made it doesn’t make you an expert, but a mere beginner.

If these things were to be taught in schools, it would help people all over the world change the way they see this world. And maybe people wouldn’t have that many ready made ideas about a lot of things.
