Learning From Failures Ensures Success
There are many famous university or school drop-outs that have made it huge in our world today. Richard Branson is one of the most successful businessman on the planet and he dropped out of school at the age 15. Bill Gates famously dropped of college and went on to create Microsoft and became the richest man in the world. There are many more examples where people have left school early and gone on to become massively successful.
Success requires passion, perseverance, emotional intelligence and the ability to understand the value of failure.
This is precisely why we see so many “C” students, people we wouldn’t necessarily expect, running the world. They understand what it means to struggle, and often have to overcome more obstacles than many people realize.
This is not to say that getting poor grades guarantees success, but that doing well in school doesn’t mean you’ll always be on top.
Learning from failures is something that C graders have to learn from young age, and this experience helps them become more resilient as they become older and develop into adults. A graders on the other hand may not experience any real failures until they get into the real world. This is not to say that one will always become more successful than the other, it just means that C graders get a taste of what it takes to succeed earlier in life than A graders.
