How To Fail Beautifully

I’ve talked a bunch about trying to teach my older son the value of losing and making mistakes. It’s been a battle. I’ve given him lots of examples of how losing or failing can lead to bigger or more sustained success, but he still can’t quite grasp the concept.

Instead, I’m thinking of just showing him this video and explaining to him that you can always fall back on losing gracefully. Some of my favorite characters in books and films had a knack for losing with such charm or grace, that’d end up looking like they won somehow anyway.

This boy exemplifies the way I’d like to lose. If I’m going to go out, it’ll be with a laugh or a smile. Something memorable and under my own volition.

How have you successfully explained the virtues of making mistakes to your kids? Got any ideas?
