The complacency is dangerous and student should overcome the same
Failing is never fun. The fear of failure becomes particularly resilient and difficult to dislodge. All failures are not created equally, some are fairly easy to digest and some are not. They are persistent and most damaging, and some of the expressions by the students, showing susceptibility to failure. Accepting failure is also a failure. Abraham Lincoln is an example of a competitive personality who challenges failure and emerges as a true champion. Some are the motivating things that can be passed on to the students are to build their strengths, dissolve their own fear and identify the cause and effects of the failures and taking step by step approach to overcome failures, becoming less egoistic, considering natural talents and transfer them to focus and practice, focusing on consistent, near perfect performances will definitely help them to overcome failures.
