In addition, the willingness to learn through failure can help to reach the desired destiny. Nearly everybody fears failing, because it has been associated with all sorts of negativity. Although an optimistic look on the other side of tripping or falling down in life can make someone to be successful in
There are the fears that are out of our control such as hunger, war, and death but just because those few ideals are beyond our own control don’t mean we shouldn’t take control of what can be within our control. There are modifiable changes such as participating in class and getting the confidence to give a speech but so many more realities are within our reach to change. There is a power within us all that can alter the outcome of demanding jobs, heartbreaking relationships, and even our state of mind if we all just take it upon ourselves establish a sense of control when in comes to fear. I for one was hesitant and fearful of starting my first day on the Mayo Clinic neurology floor. I had spent all day fretting about what if I did something wrong or what if I didn’t know the answers to questions patients asked me but once I actually arrived to clinical on the first day and put myself in a position where I would be able to help others, my fear started to fade away. My initial response may be a weary one to overcome but if I was to resist facing my fears in life, an unwanted course of action may have been chosen that could alter the outcomes for the patients. Due to taking control of ones own course of change the result will be was way more beneficial than one that could have forced upon me. This was a scary task to complete and yes it was be a difficult decision to
Everyone is born with a fear of failure. Failure is a part of our human nature, it is ingrained in us. Any successful person has achieved their success through failure. You can’t prevent it in any way, and it’s pointless to try and in the end, it will come. Some people have such a large fear of failure, they pass it onto their children, such as Morley Callaghan’s friend’s father. He gave his child only one chance, and lost all faith in him because of one failure. As a result of this, his friend lost all faith in himself and soon dropped out of school
“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ The danger lies in refusing to face the fear in not daring to come to grips with it. If you fail anywhere along the line, it will take away your confidence. You must make yourself succeed every time. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” That was a quote said by Eleanor Roosevelt.
Bo Jackson said “set your goals high,and don’t stop till you get there” so that’s what I did when I first started playing basketball I wasn’t very good I couldn’t make a shot and i’m still miss a lot someday’s. but I have gotten much better by courage and confidence thanks to my friends,family, and coaches.
Failures are something you shouldn’t be afraid of its something that you should acknowledge. Acknowledging your mistakes help you become a more productive person always striving for the better. Whether the mistakes are big as mine was in high school or small like mine was at my first job, you learn from them significantly. When you make a mistake you know what you did wrong for that mistake to happen now next time you’ll try a different approach. Lelyveld is right, we nee to acknowledge mistakes. There’s no other way to face fear then fear itself; we need to face our
In fact, the main reason to fear failure is how we imagine how others will view us when we fail. For example, if an individual keeps doing the same thing over and over, then the results will never change. As Albert Einstein stated, “a person, who never made a mistake, never tried anything new” (Brenner). Failure is not the enemy, but a life-changing experience. It is a human experience, and it prepares the way for us to grow and transform our lives. Mistakes are essential to the development of life, just as change is. Nevertheless, change is said to prepare us for life and without change, life would persistently be the same.
It was a chilly fall evening at the local park. There I was on the court, practicing my shots for an upcoming game. I felt like I was on the level of the greatest shooter like Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. I was “in the zone.” That is the greatest feeling any basketball player can experience. Every shot was going in the basket. I kept on hearing the swoosh sound of the net. Even my friend, who was there with me, was in shock. He knew I was a good shooter, but what I displayed was something beyond normal. This good shooting carried into two pick up games I played. I had felt as if I was given the green light to shoot whenever I pleased to. My teammates kept on passing me the ball and for the most part I did not fail them. That day I was “The
Although I was never really that good at it I loved to play but my biggest problem with me playing was I was afraid to take risk outside of my comfort zone. So whenever I got the ball passed to me I would just hold it and pass it off to the next guy over. I wouldn’t have any kind of aggression with the ball. I wouldn’t think about taking the ball to the hoop or shooting it. With this kind of mindset to the game it was really easy to take me out of the game and put me on the bench and keep me there. Then as I said before I would shut down and think bad about myself and that is not the mindset you need to play the game. I didn’t find this out until the summer of my senior year. It was during a team basketball trip up to Fort Kent Maine that I learned that if you don’t take the risk of failing then you’ll get no
There is one major issue currently in the United States that might be threatening youth’s health now and for generations to come. The big question is, are youth sports too detrimental for kids and teen’s health? New studies are saying so. The discovery of a condition known as Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, also now as C.T.E. This was discovered by a scientist, Dr. Bennet Omalu, the chief medical examiner of San Joaquin County, California. He is the associate clinical professor of pathology at the University of California. This disease is most seen in former NFL athletes and causes symptoms such as depression, memory loss, suicidal thoughts and actions, loss of intelligence and dementia later in life (Omalu para 4). This suggests a significant
Basketball had always been my favorite sport. I loved the sound of the ball as it hit the ground. When my friends and I were playing a friendly match. I played with confidence as a player should be. However, I later on discovered that when it came to competitive matches,
What's the Story Behind the Glory?Hate the thought of failing? Well guess what? You are really not failing! I have overcome the fear of failure. I realized that you cannot fail at anything. Mistakes should be looked at as results or outcomes. How should you look at mistakes? Well you shouldn't look at them as permanent. You should look at them as progression to getting to the result you wanted. Learn not to limit yourself. Do not miss out on doing something because you're afraid of making a mistake. You cannot be afraid of failing or you will never succeed. This is valuable because many people will not be successful in life as they want to be, if they think they are always going to fail. Remember, failure isn't a personal characteristic. Not
The Story of My Basketball Journey There have been several events that have affected my life. there's times that life will hit you hard that will make you fall over but you will need to get back up and continue what you started. This is how i viewed myself with my ambitious journey of basketball. I was around seven years old when I was bored at home and I turned on the TV and was skipping through the channels and I wanted to see what I was going to be able to watch. I stopped at the sports channel for whatever reason and I remember that it was a Spurs game in the NBA (National Basketball Association). I was in shock seeing people jump all around being able to run from the court coast to coast being chased down by others trying to get the ball through the basket. I saw this particular player at the time on the opposing team Ray Allen from the Boston Celtics. This man had such a dominant presence on the court just getting the ball and being able to shoot the ball in any given time in whatever position he was in either it was going to be contested or open he gets the ball its an automatic scoring machine. This got me very fascinated and i began to start watching basketball since that day. I also wanted to try basketball wanted to play the position Ray allen played a shooting guard, one that is a spot up shooter and is in charge to score from a convertible distance away.
