"Learning skills of any kind doesn’t just involve errors, it requires them."
- Andrew Huberman
Spanx founder and billionaire entrepreneur Sara Blakely says her dad used to invite her and her brother to share their failures at the dinner table. Instead of being disappointed or upset, he would celebrate their efforts.
"What it did was reframe my definition of failure. Failure for me becamenot trying, versus the outcome,"Blakely said.
"My dad would encourage me any time something didn't go the way I expected it to, or maybe I got embarrassed by a situation, to write down where the hidden gifts were and what I got out of it. I started realizing that in everything there was some amazing nugget that I wouldn't have wanted to pass up."
