No worries, I wanted to make sure we were thinking about the same thing.
This is an interesting topic. The best place to start you search is the All Purpose Research Guide in the library libguides: https://libguides.brenau.edu/allpurpose.
Using the box labeled library catalog from the libguide, select the books tab and enter these search terms (exactly as written): failure AND "personal growth" This search will bring up quite a few books that you will find helpful to your research. If you want to read an ebook just click on the View eBook button and you will be asked to login using your six digit student ID and the first part of your Brenau email address. You can then use the table of contents to navigate to areas of the book that you find interesting or you can use the arrows to move back and forth through the pages.
You can repeat the same search using the articles tab to find journal articles. After entering the same search (capitalized and quotation marks) you can use the tools located on the left side of the screen to narrow your search results. I recommend selecting: Brenau Trustee Library, Full Text, Peer Reviewed, Last 5 Years for the best results.
