Don’t be Afraid to Fail

You’ve failed

many times,

although you may not

remember.

You fell down

the first time

you tried to walk.

You almost drowned

the first time

you tried to

swim, didn’t you?

Did you hit the

ball the first time

you swung a bat?

Heavy hitters,

the ones who hit the

most home runs,

also strike

out a lot.

R. H. Macy

failed seven

times before his

store in New York

caught on.

English novelist

John Creasey got

753 rejection slips

before he published

564 books.

Babe Ruth struck out

1,330 times,

but he also hit

714 home runs.

Don’t worry about

failure.

Worry about the

chances you miss

when you don’t

even try.

 

Don’t Be Afraid

 

To Fail
