I love the weekly email I get from elitefts; tons of excellent articles on that site!
This particular one hit home for me. The author uses the story of her daughter doing poorly in a spelling bee (I was in multiple bees and my best place was 3rd), to emphasize how we all must learn how to deal with failure despite doing your best. Sound familiar?
Life Lessons: Hard Work, Failure and Shame - read it right here.
And it has a bonus picture of a super cute girl doing a deadlift. Go read it now!
