Lebron James once said, “Don’t be Afraid to fail this is the way to succeed.” This quote has many reasons he tells us with all his achievements he has failed as well it’s a normal person thing to do. Failing will give us knowledge on what he or she did wrong and that person will have a idea how to fix it and then you can start winning or succeeding in life. Maybe a person can’t find a way to succeed or win by failing maybe that’s just not something they’re good at but on themselves know what they’re good at and take matters into our own hands and fix that. Go pick something yourself loves or good at but if you’re okay with losing than that person is probably not a
Roger Von Oech proved that a person who has no experience in failing would not have enough strength or a harder time getting back up. In his article, “To Err Is Wrong”, he talks about having a friend who just graduated with a master degree and is having a hard time getting a job. He says her problem is, “she doesn’t know how to fail”(Oech 89). He explains that because of her inexperience in failing, she is afraid of taking chances in doing what might not go right. For me, I have failed at many things like writing an essay but like many people when I receive the grade I just don’t throw the essay.
When I look at the word failure I didn’t see success. But that slowly changed as I read the book What the Best College Students Do by Ken Bain Chapter four. Bain, for me and I’m sure many other, have changed our view point on failure being a bad thing. He instead expressed failure as an “opportunity to learn something.” (121) As infants we grow and develop, we learn to walk by falling down a couple hundred times, and we learn to speak by babbling. By trying to walk, and trying to talk, we may fail at first. As an infant, you cannot give up when you are face to face with failure. You must get up and try again to learn. In the book, What the Best College Students Do by Ken Bain he uses people’s experiences and research to explain why failure is an opportunity to learn something new, rather than seeing failure as something bad. He asserts “people who become highly creative and productive learn to acknowledge failures, even to embrace them, and to explore and learn from them.” (100) Failure is important. If we did not get up and try again as infants, we would not be where we are today.
Failure for some, is one of the hardest things to come back from. When you do not succeed at something the first time around, you can develop false hope that you wont ever be able to accomplish that same goal, ever again. But it should be seen as the complete opposite. The effect of failing at a particular thing should give you even more drive and want to, achieve it. It shouldn't knock you down, but aspire you to be stronger and want what you are striving for, even more than you did before. I have gone through very many experiences where I have not received the outcome that I thought I deserved or wanted and I have felt like quitting. Knowing now that I didn't quit, makes the success of that one goal, that much better.
In a famous quote by Coco Chanel she states that “Success is most often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable” (Chanel). This could be telling us that if you haven’t failed you will never lean. A different person Eminem, tells us that, “I was a smart kid, but I hated school” (Eminem). From this we can see that even tho a student is smart he or she decides
It is often assumed that failure is a deterrent to achievement. Rather, failure should be seen as a motivator for a person to keep trying until the objective or aim of a particular mission is fulfilled.
Failure is ok. You will fail, and you will get a bad grade. Though, to let that define you and your future is not realistic. By failing we represent we are only human. We make mistakes, and the best thing to do is learn from them. Sometimes we are not the human making the mistake, and other times we are. We cannot fault ourselves for everything, and we cannot fault others. Learn from the mistakes you make in a class, or the mistakes of classmates, or a professor. Maybe sometimes you won't be able to prevent them in the future, but they will happen and it will be
Some failures could let you later to succeed. I experienced failure when I didn't pass my TSI Reading test. I took it too many times and failed it. When I took the TSI the first time I was really nervous. I was so worried about passing the first 24 questions. However, I kept trying with the second test which includes 36 additional questions. Finally, I decided to not take it again until the following year. Therefore, I took it again and failed it again. At first I found it so difficult to understand the questions because I was not that used to reading in English. I came from Mexico and had difficulties with this Language. Furthermore, that was not an obstacle that would last too much.Although I thought that I would never be able to take college
I was in Mr. Griffin History class when I saw a student exhibiting a negative identity pattern of failure. While in the class the student was require to complete a class assignment in which he had to write a paragraph about the three important developments made during the Renaissance period. As soonest everyone started to work on the assignment the student walked up to the Mr. Griffin staying that he could not complete the assignment because it was too difficult for him and writing a paragraph is too much to do. This shows that the student has a mentality of failure already limiting his ability to complete the assignment successfully.
As I discussed earlier in my writtings, I think that failure cannot be avoided and we are presented with failures to gain an opportunity to learn. Failures will be an aspect at some point professionally and or personally so that we can grow and develop as
“Develop success from failures, discouragement and failures are two of the surest stepping stones to success” (Carnegie). Putting in the work and not getting a grade deserved is discouraging. Failure does break the average person, and they accept being beat. A negative experience is always hard to overcome, however the ones who recover are the most successful in life. A negative experience can leave a forever positive influence on their life.
Shocked standing in confusion you find out your friend intentionally failed at something you needed help with. Trying to grasp the reason they failed you you are dumbfounded. Some people believe that failure is essential for success. In the book, The 5 Elements of Effective Thinking, the authors, Edward Burger and Michael Starbird, state that a person should intentionally fail in order to succeed. However, this stance is inaccurate because it goes against biblical evidence, causes psychological problems, and make success impossible in the professional world.
Through out my high school career I never took my education seriously. For most of the four years it was a big blur. I’m not quite sure if it was because of me or if I found myself blaming my surroundings or teachers for my lack of focus and strive to learn. A failure can mean different things to everyone else. Maybe there’s just different types or categories of failures. These failures are meant to teach us something, or motivate us to simply not make these mistakes again.
Traditionally, failure is seen as a negative concept and is defined as lacking success. I, on the other hand, try to put a positive spin on everything in life. I see failure as an obstacle that is experienced by all, but it does not define an individual. Failure in essence will force an individual to be more receptive to their surroundings and actions and also will force an individual to mature. Looking back on my childhood years I can now pinpoint the areas where I failed and I can confidently say that I have grown and prospered due to those failures. The three major failures I have experienced were my attention deficit issues which affected my ability to succeed in school, my anti-social habit that I let consume my early years, and my
