Mental Health and Wellness Book: Fail Fail Again Fail Better

If you’ve made it to law school, you and success might be pretty close. Maybe you’ve had good grades in college. A good LSAT score. A successful career. But now that you’re here, you might be getting to know failure a little better, which is never actually a bad thing. Some people say fail stands for First Attempt In Learning.  You could even think of it as FAILL – First Attempt In Learning Law. That’s a positive way to think of failure, a way to focus on growth and personal development in your chosen career path.

Fail Fail Again Fail Better, written by an American-born Buddhist nun, is a book that you can pick up and skim (maybe over a coffee or in between classes) when you need a dose of inspiration. It’s short, sweet, and comes with a little drawing on every other page. It might help you get through a stressful point in the semester. You can find the book in our Mental Health & Wellness Collection, located in the Ohio Room as you walk in. All of the books from this collection can be checked out at the circulation desk. You can explore the collection online through our Mental Health & Well-Being research guide.
