A discussion with Mark Anshell, Professor of Health & Human Performance at Middle Tennessee State University and author of the new book: “In Praise of Failure in Sport: The Value of Overcoming Mistakes to Achieve Optimal Performance Success”. We discuss why we need to change our conception of failure, the importance of failing for success in sports, fear of failure, using exercise as punishment and how coaches can create environments that embrace failure.
