McCaskill: "Guts and the courage to fail" needed for success
By: Associated Press
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. -- Senator McCaskill tells high school graduates in Southeast Missouri that failing isn't always bad.
She says life's setbacks can lead to bigger and better opportunities later on.
McCaskill spoke to 19 graduating seniors from Delta High School yesterday. She told them to remain faithful to their family, faith and calling, and to prepare for disappointments.
She recalled the pain of losing the 2004 governor's race. But she said that led to a US Senate seat.
McCaskill advised graduates to consider their life's work carefully. She says a career isn't about accumulating wealth, but rather, doing what excites and energizes them.
