In life we tend to see failure as a terrible thing. When we do fail, most of the time we want to give up and see it as the end of the world. However there are few that see failure as an opportunity to do better and rethink the mistakes that were made in the past. Angela Duckworth, Emily Hanford, and CarolDweck all provide their research on how one can have highachievement e in life. Angela’s Duckworthresearch on grit proposes the idea that if someone stays persistence for a long time they can master something.
Failure is a good thing Failure is it a good or a bad thing? People have had failure since the start of humankind. With this failure has come many lessons which has led to success.

Do you think parents should do their kids work? In the Scope article “Should Libby's Dad Do Her Project?,” Libby wants her dad to do her project for her. Libby says yes, but her dad said no. Libby should be doing her own work. There are many examples from the argument on why Libby should do her own work, including she would learn more if she did the project on her own, Plenty of famous people have a huge failure and are still famous, parents who do their kids projects are making a mistake.
Failure is vital to the growth of not only heroes, but ordinary people as well, as it teaches them how to move past their guilt and negativity in order to persevere. Through the article Nine Ways to Fail Better, the author shows that it’s not easy to deal with failure, but it is extremely important to move on. The author states, “Blaming yourself for the bad things that happen to you--are probably the biggest reason people metabolize failure badly.” In expressing that one should put the blame on themselves, “for the bad things that happen to [them]” stresses the idea that failure is often inevitable, and there is not much that can change the outcome of the situation. Additionally, there is no sense in feeling shameful about failure.
In her article, “The Perils and Promise of Praise,” Carol S. Dweck discusses the outcome of different types of praise has on students’ motivation and ability to learn. She reveals the parallel between praise and students’ opinions on their intelligence. The author writes about two kinds of students, those who think their intelligence is not able to be increased, and those who recognize that their intelligence can be developed. Dweck also writes on how psychology and neuroscience support the student that believes they can strengthen their cognitive skills. She states that, through research in these areas, we’re can see that our minds are able to grow and mold if we initiate it.
In life, failures sometimes happen. It happens to everyone. However, failures don’t define us as a person, but it builds you as one from those experiences. In my seventeen years, I have experienced my own share of blunders, each teaching me a new lesson. The person who succeeds without first failing hasn't really learned anything; in failures, there can be a learning experience and an opportunity to grow.
Figure 2.1: Paul and Elder’s (2001) Framework of Critical Thinking There are two fundamental dimensions of thinking that students need to master in order to learn how to upgrade their thinking. They need to be able to identify the "parts" of their thinking, and they need to be able to assess their use of these parts of thinking (Paul, Elder, & Bartell, 1997). Accordingly, eight elements necessary for any reasoning process were suggested by Paul, Elder, and Bartell (1997): the purpose of the thinking; the question or problem to be solved; information such as data and observations; inferences, interpretations, or solutions; concepts such as theories or definitions; assumptions; implications or consequences; and points of view or frames of reference
Easy to encounter, not so easy to overcome, failures claw at hopes and successes. They bring down those who are weak enough to let them in. They strengthen those that can get past them. I got past one that almost ruined my chances for new opportunities.
Learning and success Many people ask what leads to success? Is it good IQ scores that lead to intelligence and success or is it some brain surgery that makes people intelligent and successful? Some people think that it is IQ scores lead to success, others think that people stay the same way forever so they can not grow their intelligence and they can not be successful. Turns out, it is none of them, what leads to intelligence and success is practice, effort and failure.
