Failures are Not All Bad

In Determination and Perseverance from Clif's Notes by Clif Mims , he shows a video on
Famous failures:

Then I started to look at a couple of others that might be motivational and inspirational for my students. I remember when I was in fourth grade and terrorized by an abusive teacher because of making mistakes. I knew then that I wanted to become a teacher so students would not think that an error is a terror. These videos reinforce that thought and I thought you might enjoy these too.

Thank you so much for a great motivational video to begin the year. I always feel like it takes so long for the kids to feel like they can try and if they fail it's ok. Maybe some of these videos will shorten that time.

@teachin' Glad you enjoyed them.

@Rebecca I thought many kids would be motivated if they saw that even the famous people faced failure throughout their life. But they overcame it and became famous instead of just giving up. Glad you liked it.
