Greg Mortenson failed in his attempt to climb K2, the second highest mountain on earth. Yet a lesson was gained from that experience that we can all learn from. With K2 in sight, he began building schools that would change the lives of hundreds of children and his own.
Within sight of a great failure, at the base of your greatest disappointment you might find your greatest success, your calling, your purpose, and the most meaningful accomplishments of your life.
We and our students should never forget that.
