Failure = Growth

Some students believe that they have nothing significant to boast. Well, if you have never reached resounding success, why not write about failure? Isn’t overcoming failure a kind of success?

Wasn’t it you who wrote an essay trying to prove that in the trying moments of our lives we find out who we are? How we cope with our limitations and deal with disappointment are at the core of out human experience, so such moments might make great essay topics.

Have you seen “Babe”, the movie about the pig who wanted to be a sheepdog, or “Ratatuoille”, the cartoon about the mouse who wanted to be a fancy restaurant chef?

Failure might have inspired you to stretch yourself beyond your limits; it might have led you to a rude awakening and helped you give up a vain, hollow ambition.
