Why is failure good?

dads fail

This question was recently asked on professional (and super addictive) Q&A site Quora.

As always, the answers ranged in length and usefulness but one answer really stood out to me - and not just because it's had over 3,500 upvotes in a week.

James Altucher is described as a 'trader, investor, writer and entrepreneur', with one of the most popular blogs on the internet. He also happens to be a very proud dad, often writing about topics like:

I want my daughters to be lesbians

Advice I want to give my daughters

I'll let you make up your own mind on the rest of his writing, but this answer to a simple question was so bang on, I had to share.
