Do You Know Of Movie/TV Scenes Showing The Value Of Taking Risks & Making Mistakes?


I’ve got a ton of resources at The Best Posts, Articles & Videos About Learning From Mistakes & Failures, including the videos that everybody knows (Michael Jordan commercial, Famous Failures, etc.).

However, I don’t have any clips from movies or TV shows that illustrate the idea — in a funny or serious way.

Do you have any suggestions?

  1. I’m a huge movie fan as well! So a few of the movies I know about mistakes:
    The Internship (Vince Vaughn makes a big one and loses a competition for his class but learns from it);
    Sherlock Holmes (the 2nd one – he goes to the wrong museum, but learns from it)
    Lion King (Simba makes a mistake in leaving)
    Frozen (Elsa makes a mistake)
    I’ll keep thinking, but hope this helps a little.
    Thanks so much for your blog, I love it!
