Try Everything

I haven’t heard enough praise of the new Shakira song premiered as part of Zootopia. It has an amazing message that we can all stand to hear more often.

A few excerpts:

Birds don’t just fly, they fall down and get up
Nobody learns without getting it wrong.

I’ll keep on making those new mistakes
I’ll keep on making them every day.

I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
‘Til I reach the end and then I’ll start again.
No, I won’t leave, I wanna try everything,
I wanna try even though I could fail.

We could all stand for more reminders of failure as the path to success. This one comes as a catchy tune that my sons walk around singing. Double bonus!

(The only quibble I have is the line “even though I could fail”–failure is inevitable, but is necessary to reach success.)

What song have you heard recently with a powerful lesson?
