Former India captain Rahul Dravid ,Across formats I batted 604 times for India. I didn’t cross 50 runs 410 times out of those innings. I failed a lot more times than I succeeded. I’m more a failure than a success, So, I’m quite qualified to talk about failure.”
“Let’s look at the best batsman of my generation: Sachin Tendulkar. He scored a hundred 100s. But he didn’t cross the 50-run milestone in 517 out of the 781 times he batted. So he too was more of a failure than a success, if that’s even possible.”
“One of the things that I picked up from the great players who I have played with, and the athletes I know, is their attitude towards failure. They know how to fail well,” he added.
