I was reading the wonderful book ‘To the Summit’ by Hiroshi Tasaka. A different kind of book or prose writing. It is most wonderful with simplest of language and not packed with content. But whatever it has are these extremely thought provoking and inspiring message. You should read it and make sure your child reads it or you read it to them.
One of the message (I haven’t finished it) is Success is not guaranteed in life however much effort you put or desire you have. Does it mean no one’s life is a success? No. If one learns from the failures, they grow. And Growth (personal), is what is guaranteed in life. With Growth, you climb to the summit of mountain that is life, not with success alone.
