My father used to ask me every dinner the question: “where did you fail today?” I thought it was an insane question.
Instead of asking how was school or my day, this stressful question always pops out. It turns out to be a mind-setting questions for me not to get afraid of failing at something. So I did! I failed some of my subjects and other things over and over but I learned to cope up with failures. I even got rejected by the ladies multiple times! I got less intimidated by failing and it helped on expanding my personality.
That question was actually a hidden message – Give yourself permission to fail.
