The Famous Failures Kit is a printable set of worksheets highlighting famous people from around the world who have failed and struggled on their way to success.
These growth mindset handouts are designed to assist parents and educators, at home or in the classroom, in helping kids overcome the fear of failure.
Fear of failure is a hallmark of a FIXED mindset and often contributes to the child shying away from trying new things or taking on a challenge. By not fearing failure, children are one step closer to having a GROWTH mindset and living a big life!
This kit includes:
The story of each famous person can be used to begin a discussion with your child about what it takes to overcome the fear of failure in various settings: at the dinner table, while traveling on vacation, during bedtime reading, etc. It can also be used in conjunction with the SUCCESS ICEBERG poster (also available as PDF).
At the end of the kit, the list of other successful famous people and companion template worksheet are a great tool for self-directed learning (research) by the child.
Either alone or assisted by a parent/teacher, the child chooses from the list someone they find interesting. The child then investigates the person's story learning about times when they failed or struggled and their eventual success.
By filling in the template themselves, the child begins to internalize the understanding that failure and struggle is not something to fear, and in most cases, is necessary for success.
