Our pal Dan Zehr takes a look at failure and the lessons kids can learn from The Last Jedi over at StarWars.com, focusing on Luke’s errors in Episode 8.
Yoda tells him, “The greatest teacher, failure is.” But what does that mean? How can failure teach you anything? If you mess up, does that mean you are not good enough?
Of course not! Failure is the best teacher because it teaches you how not to do something. Those mistakes are actually springboards that can catapult you to try things in a different way. What Yoda is telling Luke is that just because it did not work the first time, does not mean that it will happen every time, or that it defines him. Luke just has to look at this situation differently, and maybe, there will be a different result.
