They most certainly do!
I love this parenting idea from the founder of Spanx (well, actually, her dad): I used to sit at the dining room table as a kid and my dad would ask me what I failed at that week. If I tried out for a school play and didn't get it, he would high-five me. He always encouraged me to fail. I didn't realize at the time how much this advice would define not only my future, but my definition of failure...My dad taught me that failing simply just leads you to the next great thing.
Love this quote......... my Mother used to tell me this all the time..... A greater truth could not have been spoken. Quotes When I was a new nurse in one of my first interviews, a manager told me that my expectations were too high and unrealistic. Her advice was that I lower my standards! (I kid you not). Needless to say I wasnt a fit for her unit. Dont lower your standards for anyone!
