Default Is it really ok to fail?

I havenít studied for the past 7 years. Iím now in college and I pass my exams without any reading on the basis of the lectures I attend. I may fail class tests or semesters but I cover up in the finals. But is it really okay to fail?

Hm-m-mÖ I'm not sure I really understand this. You wrote you may fail classes or semesters but you cover up in the finals? I see you list yourself as being in India. Perhaps that's why I wouldn't understand what you've written here because I don't know anything about the educational system in India.

Is it really okay to fail? Well... I don't know. Somewhere I recall reading a quote from someone who said they had learned more from their failures than from their successes. So perhaps as long as you don't make a habit of it, & you're able to maintain the right perspective with regard to it, a few failures along the way in life aren't the worst thing in the world. In fact, they can be learning opportunities. However, as with anything, it would certainly be possible to overdo it I would guess. At least those are my thoughts with regard to your post.

Failure are just another way to learn. I think it's ok to fail, as long as you get something out of it and, most importantly, as long as you give it your best shot. Just put all your effort into it, and things should be ok. Sending many hugs

Default Re: Is it really ok to fail?

Thatís the problem! I have gotten into a habit I cant get out off. I donít study. I just cant anymore. Like I fail the nonconsequential tests, tests that donít affect my yearly report but I pass in the annual exams. Every person who meets me tells me that if I score as much without studying a word, I can do so much more. Apparently I have a lot of potential, but I can seem to tap it because Iím not a go getter. Sometimes i feel Iím just lazy, but sometimes I donít understand... anything. I cant figure out why I am not like my peers academically.
