Have you ever laughed like a burrito, or a dandelion? How about an ostrich? Tommy Wells, presenter at Tuesday’s Hope Week kick-off assembly, asked students to do just. Happiness brings power into our lives, Wells told students, the power to overcome obstacles and the power to achieve our goals.
He also warned students to expect to fail. Learning means failing and trying again—sometimes again and again and again. Babe Ruth, one of the best homerun hitters of all time, struck out 1,330 times. Achievement comes only after failure.
