Survivors | Bothsides of the Table
Failure. To most people it smells. People are afraid of it. It’s like cancer or divorce. When you have it you find you who your true friends are because they’re the ones who double down on helping, on being available, on listening, on understanding. Most people run from failure or disease because they’re hard to handle. Hard to know how to deal with. Awkward. But I am attracted to those who have had severe set-backs in life because it tells you something about the mettle of the person with whom you’re dealing. It reminds me of a famous quote in one of my favorite novel’s “Damage” by Josephine Hart “Damaged people are dangerous. They know they can survive.” [...] closed up shop at the very first hurdle. I wouldn’t work with him again. [...] Honor is what I’m looking for. How you failed is significantly more important than if you failed.

Ballet star Tamara Rojo says modern children lack discipline - BBC News
The principal dancer at the English National Ballet says many of today's pupils lack the discipline to succeed. Tamara Rojo told Radio Times magazine that children were often praised for quick results rather than hard work. "We live in a society that rewards fast success based on little talent or commitment, which is transient and a dangerous place to be," she said. "Do we want to promote instant success and instant failure, or do we want to promote self-esteem and hard work?"
