Having Never Failed Means You've Yet to Try
I think it's especially worth watching--not only for oneself, but also as a parent who is raising kids in today's world. There's no instant "reset button" like there is on an Angry Birds video game. You don't simply re-spawn. These instant gratification-techification kids du jour need a bit of a reality check. What you do is get up, dust yourself off, and try again. Retry, redesign, reiterate, and redo. And if that doesn't work, try try again!
You might surprise yourself, but those failures might end up building some strength, some confidence, and ultimately some great success!!
