After seeing “Captain Marvel” there was an interesting perspective on the human condition which I found connected with learning. Learners fall and get up.


There is a book of John C. Maxwell entitled “Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn.” Failing is part of every learning process. But, it doesn’t matter how many times you fail, as much as the times you get up and try again.

Also the comedy movie “Night School” deals with the same issue as a person with dyslexia. At the end of the movie, we see him try to perform a GED test over and over again, smiling each time he fails, until one day, he succeeds.

“Getting up” is intrinsically human and one of the most powerful tools to strive at learning. Therefore, in learning, failing is incomplete without getting up.
