    Tenacity is a crucial skill to develop, and not everybody figures that out.

    Children are great at it, because they’re constantly learning to do everything and are expected to be beginners, but at a certain point for many adults, failing at something new challenges their self-image/self-worth, so they just find reasons to avoid developing skills altogether.

    Learning how to fail is a necessary step on the way to mastering anything.

      Otoh little bastards don’t have a choice so they gotta suck it up
