Have you ever failed at something, but did it again and achieved? I have once. One time I had to serve at a volleyball game and I had to do it over hand. Well, when I did it didn't go over the net. When I got to try again, I hit it over hand and made it over the net and got us a point. My coach and team mates were really proud of me making it over. When I kept trying on and on I could never make it over. Maybe that was a one time deal for me.
Autumn you have some very good points. I've had a similar experience.
I agree with your points, you can fail a lot in sports. Even if you are normally really great at them, you can still fail.
A time that I failed was York Vs. Aurora in basketball this winter. There was a minute or two minutes left in the game and I had a perfect free throw opportunity and I missed both and we were down by 1. We would've been up but no I had to miss the stupid free throw. Then they called a timeout and then MY guy that I was guarding snuck around to the other side and popped the game winning 3 so, the loss was kinda my fault but now I know that I need to be focused and on key at the end of the game.
A time that I failed was the first time I rode my bike. I remember it still. I had just turned 7 and I got a bike it was decorated in Ariel stuff and it had a little bell and basket in the frond. I was so excited to ride it. My dad helped me and then he let go because I told him to and I was up on the mike for like 2 seconds. I face planted into the grass in our yard. I was crying but after a while I wanted to try again. A little later I tryed it again but this time with training wheels and I did it all by myself. I was so proud of myself.
You need to be careful about that Ty Bart. I know to are good at that but don't be depressed like Thomas. You are amazing and you can be one of the best people in the state. I know you make mistakes but you think that you are not that good.
I remember that game. It was so fun to play with all my teammates. I think there were multiple times that game where we could've done better and won the game.
Ty Bart I totally remember this. It just wasn't your fault for this game. It was the team who lost the game. You did great I think you dropped 21 point so don't be hatting on yourself. You are also like the best player on the team.
I failed at a lot of things in life just like everybody else. I've failed in school, sports, dance, life. I feel like I fail a lot but I learn even more every time. I've learned to try to be confident and to be respectful of others and myself. I've also learned a lot about myself in general and who I am.Everybody fails, it's life and you have to take the fails and learn from them. I don't think it's fair to say that someone is better because sometimes the best of people fail the most.
Noice fam, real nice. I totally agree with you. Everybody does fail, but some people don´t like to admit it. It´s hard for people to accept that. Nice job buddy.
I agree with you. Everybody fails but sometimes its hard to admit it. I think that if people don´t fail then the world wouldn't be the same. Good job, it was almost as good as a giraffe.
I have failed at a lot of things in life. I fail in all of the sports that I do, school, and lots of other things, but people always tell learn from your fails, and just try and get better. I have learned to never give up and always try my hardest. I know that one day I will get better at those things, from learning. I learn new things about me, like what my weaknesses are and my strengths. I also know that everybody fails at things in life, because that is what life is about. When you learn from those things you get better.
I agree that we all fail at times. I agree that we learn new things about us every single day. I also agree that life is full of you failing. That, that is what life is about. I have also learned to never give up at things and to always try my hardest.
I have failed at a lot of thing because no ones perfect but one of the fails that I really remember was. When I was about four or five and I was learning how to ride a three wheeler and I was going full speed and I ran into a TV pole and I went flying I hurt and I am amazed I dint brake any bones. But when I remember that I just laughing it was such a fail but I instantly went back to my three wheeler to see if it was ok I didn't even care about myself at that moment.
Have I failed, yes. Have I attempted to do that same thing again, yes. Like one day I tried to shoot string right out of my hand (still working on it). Ya that did not go over to well. Well there are lots of things I failed (a test once HAHA). One time we were playing at Aurora, and I was center (so this was like the practice game after the real one) and I miss snapped and that may not seem like a lot but to me it was. So I continue to work on snapping the football so I can get better mistakes are prone to happen but you need to get as close to your goal as possible.
One time that I failed was in our last basketball game. There was five seconds left in the game and I was supposed to catch it at the box and shoot a bank shot from there. The play worked, we tricked the other team and I was wide open at the box for a shot. I rushed and barely missed the shot. Later in overtime we lost the game. I learned to always work on doing something right the first time so that if it comes down to a situation like that you win.
I so remember that Jake. I know you could've had that. You just probably didn't have a grip on the ball.
I have never failed. Well maybe, okay I have failed. I just don't like to admit it to other people. When I fail I learn from my mistakes but not always. Sometimes people say failure is not an option, well I think it is. You can't try and fail though. You must still try your hardest instead of sitting o your butt eating potato chips all day.
Yep that's right Spivey! No sitting on the coach all day eating potato chips. It's alright to fail. You just have to get up and try it again. It will work out sooner or later.
I have failed at a lot of things probably more than the average person should fail but that's just because I'm bad at everything although I can still try and get tons of criticism for some that is well deserved and some that has nothing to do with the subject or topic at hand here's a list of most of the things I failed at
Being a kind and thoughtful person
and many more those where just a few of the many many things that I have failed because I'm bad but you got to at least try and learn to keep your head up from these situations even if it feels like an impossible task what have you failed at?
A time that I have failed was when I was at my friends house and we were playing hide and seek. I was hungry so I started eating and forgot that we were playing. I was eating for 15 minutes or so then my mom was like why are you not playing with them and I said wait what oh right. It was so embarrassing so I bolted and tried to find them as fast as I could. When I finally found them I had to tell them about what happened and I did not want to tell them I would rather eat instead of playing with my friends. And that is a time that I have totally failed at.
I have failed in a lot of things like sports, or homework. But one thing that I have learned from all of these things is to always get back up on my feet. I know that some days are just not going to be my day. Every time I fail I learn something new that maybe I could use later on in life. If I see someone else fail I tell them I have done it before just get back up on your feet and keep trying, until you get it right. Yes, I have failed but every time I fail I don't not do it anymore. I keep on trying and maybe I don't successfully complete the challenge, at least I know that I tried everything possible to make it be right.
I agree with you, and I think the same. Whenever I see you down or not get something done successfully, I always see you get back on your feet. I think that is a great way to put it.
I never though about it like that. That's a good way to think about it. I was thinking when it said something that you failed in but learned from it, I thought it meant like homework or a test. I agree with Meaghan when she says that you do always just get right back up on your feet and keep trying. I like your thinking Natalie!
I have failed at many things in my life. No one is perfect so i think everyone has failed at something.one time it tried to shoot a hand gun but i kinda lost control of it. Failure helps you get better at what you are trying to do. If you want to pass driving and get your licence then you work on and you might fail a lot but the out come is great.
I remember when I shot my first gun I more or less fell down. What I mean is when I shot a gun that a actually has kick not a BB. It was a shotgun and like I said it hurt and I fell down.
I remember when I first shot a gun. It was when I went turkey hunting with my dad. I shot it and when I did I fell down and my back and my shoulder hurt for 3 days.
I have failed at many different things in life. Sports, school, and just life in general. It´s hard to tell tell yourself that you´ll get it next time when you tried your very hardest the first time. Even when these thoughts inside your head bring you down, you can´t let them control you. You can´t let them define who you are. You have to get back up and keep trying, even if your discouraged. If we´re discouraged, we can´t see things clearly. We need to stay true to our vision. See it in our mind again.
I loved reading this. You made really good points in this. You're right, you have to get back up and keep trying. You can't let them get to your head. You can't let thoughts control you like you said. And it is very true.
I think that is really good what you said. The sports and school are just general of what you said. Being discouraged is bad. That's good how you say true of our version. So that was very good. Nice job Erin
I have failed a lot of times In my life but one that made me mad was when we were playing Adam Central In basketball season this winter. During the third quarter I got my fifth foul and I fouled out of the game.So I got to sit on the bench while my team was losing to Adam Central.That is a fail I will never forget. I feel like that was my fault we lost 19-38 but we always learn from a loss.
I have failed in a lot of things. There always seems to be one thing that stands out when I think of this and it would have to be the first time I tried to ride a ripstick. It was in 6th grade the last Friday of play practice, and Addison was coming home with me. She brought her ripstick along because she had ridden it from the high school to the middle school. Play practice had just gotten out and we were waiting for my mom, so Addison persuaded me to try ridding it. I hoped on thinking it would be easy, but it was far from that! I ran into the brick wall of the building and it hurt! I asked Addison why it would n't move very well and she said that I was trying to ride it backwards! She finally showed me how to step on it correctly and I kept trying and trying till about 8:00 that night and that's when I finally got it! I was so happy that I figured out how to do it, but it still needed some work. After all that night was great and I got to try something new!
Abby this is great. The first time I tried a ripstick I ran over my friends foot and I fell to. I still can't ride one, I don't have enough balance to stand up on it right. I have tried to do it so many times, but I can't. My sister can even do it. Good job no errors.
Have you ever failed? I have failed in some basketball games when I was supposed to do this but I did that. Like this one time I was supposed to play the post on the left side so when he spun he would spin into the paint, but he got the best of me and he drove baseline and scored two points. You see we all fail but on a couple of plays later I led him into the paint and stripped the ball from him. It doesn't matter how many times you fail, it matters how many times you get up and face adversity no matter how hard it is.
So we're writing about something we failed at? This is stirring up some bad memories. Oh well, one thing I did fail at and tried again was when I was learning to use tools. I almost cut off one of my fingers! Almost. And yes, this was in Kindergarten. Partly in class, partly not. I was at my dad's workshop and he was teaching me about tools, even though I was, like, 5 years old. I didn't listen. Then, at school, my teacher brought actual tools to school (though I think the saw was a bit unnecessary). I played with a hammer for a bit (hey, at least it wasn't the saw or nails). After school, back at my dad's workshop, he let me use a saw. Luckily, he was watching me and made sure I still had eight fingers and two thumbs. Because little 5 year old me apparently didn't care about my limbs. Now, I have some experience with certain tools and I know NOT to point a saw towards me.
good job,I think you did a good job because you said a thing you failed at.
One thing that I have failed was at trap. I was using a new gun and got three of 25 clay pigeons. I was mad so I gave the gun to my brother and he hit 15 out of 25. So now I use my dads gun and shoot a lot better. After all we learn from our mistakes.
This is a perfect thing to write about! Fail is my middle name. Cara Fail Carranza, pretty catchy eh? I can't seem to stop failing at everything I do... I remember one time I went on a rage and punched a wall, I ended up with bruised knuckles for about a week. Life lesson: Calm yourself. I mean, life isn't the only thing I fail at. Being a daughter is one of them... I just wish I could be the daughter my dad always wanted or the best friend anyone could ask for. Nah. I guess God just wanted to create a fail to watch how funny a mistake would be. Yay me right?
Cara we all fail in life, but you are not a bad friend. I am not the only person who can tell you that. You are one of the greatest friends ever. God did not make a mistake when he made you and that is a fact. I also agree that you need to come down sometimes, but you are a great person Cara and I would never give you up for a better friend.
Everyone fails, its human nature. Just because you fail at a few things doesn't mean your a failure. I don't agree with you whatsoever you are not at all a failure.
Hey keep your head up! God loves you and everyone makes mistakes and no one's perfect trust me I know.
This is a very good paragraph! Its not true that you say that you are a fail. You are a perfect gift of god and your mom would be very proud of you. I really did like this paragraph though!
Once again, you are a great friend!!! I would never trade you for someone else. You're amazing and one of the many good things about you is that you just understand people! When I feel sad which isn't very often, you just seem to understand and know. I am very proud of you and the many things that you have accomplished in life!!! I love you Cara JoAnn!!!
Have you failed and if so what was it? Of course I have failed. I fail in school, but I get my grades up by studying. I fail in basketball, but I still play because I know I can get better. I fail in making new friends, but I try to talk to people so I don't feel alone. Everybody makes mistakes and nobody's perfect I'm sure you have heard these two phrases before. I know quite a few people who think they are the best people in the world and that they never make mistakes. But are they perfect? The answer is no. They are not perfect. If you see someone you know and they are sad about something they failed at tell them that nothing never really comes out exactly the way you want it to. If you try and try you will become good at that thing you first failed at.
Have you ever failed? I have and the time I mainly remember is when I was at national wrestling I tried to do this move on my guy with like 20 seconds left and I turned the wrong way and he got me down and won. I lost and found out how to fix my mistake and wrestled him again for fifth place and I won and got fifth.
Good post kaden, Wrestling is a sport you can fail in a lot.
It's okay kaden. You fail a lot(i'm joking). I hope you learned what you did wrong and improved.
I remember you doing that. I try to do that move on you all the time but it doesn't work. It is a very hard move to do. I won the tournament. Good job though bro. I'm happy to see you get fifth in your first.

Hey when you go against him again remember to not go the wrong way.I think you could have beat him if you went against him again.
I have failed at a lot of things. Sports, cooking, hunting and a lot of other things. I think that if you don´t fail then you are doing something wrong. Every one fails at one point in there life. Failing is like living life. If you don´t fail at something then you are not going to learn the life lessons like everyone else.
I agree completely Bradyn. Your are right if you don't fail you will never learn.
I have failed a \t a lot of things and I am not afraid of saying it. Not every one is perfect. I failed at baseball the first year that I played because I had to learn how to play. Now that I have played for 6 years I know a lot about baseball. Now I play on a baseball team with all my friends.
I have failed at a track meet before. I didn't place. But I said that's ok because you don't have to place. What really matters is that you had fun and tried your best. for all those people who lose just know you had fun and tried your best. And for the winners good for you but when the winners lose don't fell bad you tried.
I think somethings in track can be tough. Track is a hard sport to do sometimes. I´ve failed before and it wasn´t pretty. Things are tough sometimes.
I have never tried track before, but it sounds really difficult. I have failed on some sports, but you just have to try harder. And if you don't win, and you tried, you got better.
I failed in 6 grade math. I'm not really sure why, but I just did. Math has never really been my strong point. I could say that this year I picked myself up. I have had a grade of 88 or higher this year. I know my family is proud that I've been doing well. That's probably why i'm doing good, because I fell accomplished when they are proud of me.
Yes I remember that.. I gotta say you really did struggle but you've shot way up from last year! Good job Halli!!!
I have failed at a lot of things, but one main thing is making people happy. No one is perfect. No one lives perfect lives, but they can try if you make them feel good about themselves. Failure is just a one time thing, you can always fix it. Once you fail the first time, always try again better than before.
Yes I agree not everyone is good at making people happy. I also wish I could make people happy easier. It's hard. Life's also hard.
Ya, you do not always make people happy. You can always do something to fix someone being unhappy though! I agree we are all not perfect, and we have to keep going. Life is an obstacle and we are tackling that every single day of our lives so that just proves we can tackle any other obstacle.
Everyone has failed at something at least one time. I have failed at many things like dance, sports, school and more. This one time in dance I had to show them a competition dance and there was a group a, group b, group c, and group d. I was in group c and nobody in group c was there except me so I had to do that part by myself. I got so nervous that I had forgot the dance and I was just standing there. It was the most embarrassing moment in my life. I had to go talk to Kirby about it but she already saw me do the dance and she knew that I had known the dance. I learned to keep going in embarrassing things and not to care what people think. Ever since then I have done the dance by myself many times in front of the class.
Good job Molly! You've told me this story before and it sounds painful! At least its over and you're still in dance! I'm glad you let that moment slide and you keep on dancing! Everyone has failed at something, anyway good job!
I have failed at about everything. The thing is though, you don't stop on your first try. You have to take that opportunity to get better. Your not gonna be perfect at something on your first try. You have to pick yourself up and try again. When I first started pole vault it was really hard for me to learn the steps. I stayed till 6:30 every night at practice until I became good at it. In dance when I don't understand a step... I never give up. I go home and watch videos on how to do it until I can get it. It's really all about not giving up. You never gonna be good if you just quit.
One time when I failed is when I thought I could go sugar free for 30 days (which I happen to be doing right now for the school 30-day challenge). It ended up terrible, just awful. I learned a lot of things from this. 1, when I don't eat sugar, I am very cranky...constantly. 2, It is not possible for me to go any day without sugar. Not only will I be driven insane, but you will be driven insane because I will constantly be complaining.
I fail at a lot of things but one I also seem to do is not let other people bring me down. I always listen to rude things people say and I never just ignore it. Even friends say things but from now on I need to ignore it. The only thing that will make me happy is by not listening. When I think hurtful comments are getting to me I just get right but up and think there are better people and that's not gonna bring me down.I fail at many more things than that but that is just on of the many things.
I think letting people get to you isn't a good feeling because you know all those hurtful comments are towards you. I agree that it would be good to just ignore them. I think anyone can get better at not letting things get to them so much. Rude comments do hurt but it's good to ignore it. Good job and I agree!
Have you ever failed? I have failed may times like when I failed in wrestling. I went to stand up and he grabbed my leg and I went down on the mat but I didn't give up I kept trying to get up and up again and I finally got up and I went for a single leg take down and got his leg up in the air took him down and pinned him with a period to spare. I learned from this experience that if you try hard enough and keep working at your goal you will not fail at the end but you will succeed.
Very true. If you don't succeed try again. I have failed over and over and over again, and that is why I suceed. - Michael Jordan
I have always failed. I've failed almost every sport I played in. First is football, my first year, but I failed at it by not doing what I was told to do on the field. I failed at wrestling (not club). I put my arm around an opponent about 4 or 5 times. but yet I conquered it. The word fail is used everywhere we always make mistakes or mess up.
Have you ever failed at anything in life well I have. I have failed at many things in life but you can´t just give up right then and there when you do fail. Whenever I want to try something new and fail at it yeah I will admit I have just never tried it again but that was not the right thing to do. My parents and teachers are always telling me to never give up because one day you will achieve your goal. I am always going to try again and again at something I am not just going to give up even if I do fail.
I agree with you Tory! you can't just stop trying you gotta get up and try again. I think that everything you said is true. That is good that your parents and teachers are telling you to never get up because that is true. Nice job Tory!
I've failed, I've failed more than once, and I've probably failed more than one hundred times. That doesn't change who I am though. I have been failing since I was born, but it's not big things. I've been failing at are things like taking out the trash, forgetting to read at night when I'm suppose to, or forgetting to be nice, I don't know. The things is when most people fail they act like it's the end of the world or they just lost all their opportunity in life. Well those people are totally wrong. With failing you learn to get better. If you never failed how would you be good at at anything. Like lets say you go to sports practice and you totally make a fool out of yourself by doing something so off, so what! Laugh at it for a little bit and then think of ways you could better yourself. You don't need to be so negative about things.
I failed at cooking. I was making an omelet and I went to get the cheese because I forgot it after i got the cheese I got out the milk and poured a glass for myself. I turned around and knocked the milk over so I cleaned it up and then put the rag in the wash machine down stairs and then I remembered the omelet I sprinted up stairs and flipped it over and it was burnt I had just ruined my breakfast so I dumped it in the trash put the pan in the sink and turned on the cold water. I learned that I should pay attention to what I'm cooking so I dont burn down the house.
I have failed at reading. Yeah it sounds weird, But when it comes to reading it isn't so great. I was a really bad reader we I was smaller. What I learned is that it takes practice to become better.
I fail at talking a lot. like i'll want to say " i have some chocolate" but instead i say " I have some calories". I also fail at paying attention. and that includes being normal(I mean seriously have I ever been normal.).
I have failed at many things during my life. But one thing I definitely know I have failed at before is making new friends. Now, most people would think that it's a piece of cake for me to make friends, wrong. I love talking to new people but lots of people don't see me as the "friend" type. They just see me as someone trying to kick up a conversation or someone they need to get rid of as soon as possible. I love meeting new people but I don't know how much they like meeting me. I still keep talking to new people though. Sometimes they even become good friends of mine and we know a lot about each other. I hope that more people will start to see me as the "friend" type. It would be a good change because I pretty much see everyone as a friend!
I like you post and you are the nicest person I have ever met and you are a friend type heck! you are a best friend and I should know. I think people think your there friend because your so kind and positive. You have so many friends even if you don't see it others do.
Okay, let's take it back here JacJac. You are totally the type of friend person. Whoever doesn't want you as a friend, has no idea what they're talking about when they say stupid stuff about you. Hannah is my witness, she even agrees! You are the most best friends someone could ever have. I'm even your twin and I say that. You do make me mad a lot but that doesn't change that I still love you!!!
From: Jordan (Whom you better love too)
I've failed at a lot of things, but the main thing is I've failed myself. I'm just me i'm nothing special I may seem like a good person but truly i'm not. I do have anger issues especially at school when someone tries to test me and I go all out mean on them. I'm just tierd of people trying to tick me off heck some people think its funny, but I'm actually being serious. I wish I was not even born at all.
I'm sorry that you feel that way. I wish you didn't. You have so much to give to this world. That's just a load if you think you shouldn't have been born. I don't want you to feel that way. If you notice, you can make my day. Sometimes you'll just be yourself, and I will just laugh at how much fun you are to be around. I strongly dislike it that you feel that way. If anything, you have failed at accepting yourself for who you are. That's something that I've failed at. Except I've failed at accepting others as themselves. But I've accepted that nobody can judge others, unless they have perfect reason to (which I doubt anyone has a reason to).
One time I failed in catching, and that just made me better. Catching is a passion I have always had. When you fail, and do not catch the ball you get right back up in your stance, and try it again. Lately, I have not been catching all the balls I want to because I am getting adjusted to a new pitcher since I am in 14 & under now. You just have to get back up and keep going.
I agree with you. I think that even when we fail sometimes, we should try and try again. I know that catching is your passion and that you love it which is great! I've seen you fail plenty of times but its so amazing how you get back out there and try again.
Good job! I would probably fail every time because I am not a catcher. I like how you said u just have to get back up and keep going.
Yes, I have been watching you catch. You have been failing a lot, but you can always get better. I know once we get more into the season, you'll become more successful in your stance. You can do it.
What is one thing I have failed at? Well one thing I have failed at is at volleyball and basketball games. In volleyball it took a while for me to get my serves down. Most of the time I couldn't make it over the net. During basketball games I couldn't make any baskets when I tried. I couldn't get many rebounds either. Those are some of the many things I have failed at in my life.
I have failed at many things but one of them if getting along with my siblings. This is not just one time. Iv'e failed at this a lot of times. My siblings and I have a weird relationship. We all love each other but we don't express it that way. I always get mad at my sister and go all rage mode on her and then she tattle tales. So that really gets on my nerves. My brother thinks he is so cool and does really weird things. He is also very sensitive and he cries a lot. I still love them and don't know what I would do without them but they are still a pain in the butt.
You and your sibling do have a weird relationship. But it's good that you still love them. I think you get along pretty well with them sometimes..... Good job!:)
I agree some days you try to get along but it never really happens. I have at least an argument every day with my sister. I also agree you have a weird relationship with your siblings. It's good you still love them though.
I have failed once when I was doing hurdles.I was at the the Aurora track meet,and when I was doing the hurdles I biffed a hurdle.I only biffed it because it was taller than the normal ones that I did.I was hoping that I wouldn't mess up but I did.I just tripped,and I didn't fall which made me a little happier.But,that is one time were I had messed up and failed.
Quin I'm so sorry for your loss but if you would have done soccer you probably wouldn't have biffed that hurdle. Just saying. Just believe in yourself and you won't fail.:3
Yeah I failed. I failed this at this one basketball game where I saw the other players girls were talking to each over on the court trying to pass to the other one. I saw the whole thing and then when they passed the ball I came in and stole it from them. I then went to try and make a lay up. I then missed. I now know that I should take my time and set up and not rush it. I also need to have good form the whole time.
One time at our first wrestling meet this year I got beat three times. I was pretty sad. I wanted to quit but I didn't. This has taught me to not give up and now I cant wait for wrestling to start next year. That's what I learned from failing at our first wrestling meet.
I have never completely failed a test but I guess you can say I have done bad enough to call it a fail. I knew going into the test it was going to be pretty bad but I didn't think failing bad. I did get to retake the test but even my second try I didn't ace it. I have learned from this experience to study more, get enough sleep the night before the test, eat a good healthy breakfast, and ask questions if I have any. I don't want to ever do that bad on a test again so I try my very best to do well.
A time that I have failed is a lot but the one I remember was trying to get a good dive off the diving board when I was like 7 . I was trying really hard to get a good dive but I ended up doing a belly flop . I heard some ohhh or yeaaa because it was a big belly flop and it hurt so bad. I tried again and failed I kind of stopped after that. The next day we went to Mason Hoffman grandmas house ( cant think of her name) for a pool party they had a small diving board so I could practice and not be scared. I go it on my first try I was so happy! I learned that day that practice takes time and effort and pain on certain occasions .
I believe that this is a hard thing to accomplish. It also took me awhile to learn. It takes time and I have learned that also. I never learned that at first, but now that we are growing up we take that extra time to make it as perfect as we can. You did a good job at picking something you failed. Good job Hailee.
One of my many failed was at our first 7th grade basketball game against Beatrice. I didn't properly box the guy out and in return my tooth got knocked out. I spent the whole first quarter in the locker room trying to stop my tooth from bleeding. Finally when I got back out there I remembered to box the guy out and in return nothing happened. That just goes to show you should try and do things right the first time.
I have failed a ton of stuff. I have failed at sports, hunting, and especialy cooking. I have failed at basketball many times. I miss lay-ups all the time. I have failed at football. When I try to block a huge line men or throw the ball to an open receiver. I have failed over and over and over again, and that is why I succeed. My dad told me this quote once and it has stuck with me ever since.
I have failed many times and I mean that when I say I have failed many many many many times.I have failed every day of my life so far, so you could say I have failed at life. Like let's see ooh I used to do dance and lets just say I can't dance because I can't. So we were rehearsing for the big show and during the dance I totally failed and went tumbling toward the ground and landing on my face.Another time I have failed at life like every day is actually being a good friend I feel like "m not the friendly type and I am really not I'm actually quite mean to my friends and I have no idea why. I am also very very annoying around my friends. I have failed at many attempts to do things but I don't think I have that much room so bye bye.:)
Your an amazing dancer ;P And your not annoying... all the time. You are very nice actually I think you are one of many nice people I know.
I have failed at a lot of things, but one thing I failed at and I am now pretty good at is soccer. I failed lots of times in that game. Whether I passed it to the wrong team or I couldn't even kick the ball right. I didn't want to give up because I played soccer with my cousins and I did not want to be the kid that no one passed to because he couldn't score a goal. I kept on trying to get better and soon I did. I could score goals and pass to some teammates. I still kicked it wrong once in a while, but I became good at the sport eventually.
Wow you failed at soccer I would not think that you Jesus would fail at soccer because you are so good and so great that I would never ever think that you would ever fail at soccer for multiple reasons one of which I just listed for you because your so good and all that but I would never have though you or Albert would ever change.
I have failed. I have failed so many times that I can't even remember all of them. It was this year in State Wrestling I had a chance to place but I failed. It was hard. I have no excuses for this match besides I didn't put full effort into it. It was in the past so I don't really care anymore.
I have failed at many things. Everyone is writing about how they failed at sports or tests. I guess you could say I failed at those also. The one thing I feel terrible about failing is making everyone around me happy. I tried to make sure everyone was happy before me. I didn't quite care at the time if I was happy, but then I realized being happy for yourself is important also. I didn't even succeed to make everyone happy which made me disappointed in me more than anything else.
I really like your post but it is totally false! You make a lot of people happy. You make me happy and pretty much everyone else in the entire population! If you think that you don't make anyone happy, don't be disappointed. Everyone around you knows that you make them happy. Especially me!
Don't worry Erin. You make me happy every day. And by the way you laugh everyday, you seem pretty happy. You can't always make every soul happy, but it's the thought that counts. Good job Erin, I really liked your post.
I fail a lot, but one thing that I remember is when a missed a pass in volleyball. A ball was coming towards me and I just stood there and waited for someone else to take it. I was so embarrassed because everyone, even fans were yelling at me. I learned that I have to take every single ball. Though I did also learn that everyone makes mistakes. I have been very aggressive at volleyball since then.
I have done that before. One time the ball was coming toward me and I stood there not looking. Everyone yelled at me because I thought someone else was going to hit it. Now I pay attention when I play volleyball! I was embarrassed when it happened.
Finally, something I can compare to. I fail A LOT in life. I mean, everybody fails at some point but me? I fail way more than the average person fails. For goodness sake, I can't even get out of my room in the morning without failing. Yep, pathetic, I know right? You have no idea how many times I have ran into my door or wall trying to get out of my room. Most people would say that they failed at a test, or something like that. But, I just have too many to choose from. Especially when things that this happen to me everyday. Like, and example for today would be this morning. I was trying (key word being TRYING) to open the door to walk outside to I could come to school. I opened the door, then... The moment of truth. It closed when I was halfway through it! I mean, I can't even make it through a doorway. That's a pretty big fail if you ask me. I'm also not very good at making friends or anything. I'm just so energetic and happy that nobody really wants to be around me very much. Some of the people in this world do like to because not much really gets me down. Someone could say I'm fat, stupid, ugly, or whatever, but it doesn't get to me. Now, the rest of the world, just thinks that I'm another one of those really annoying, cheerful, girls that never shuts up. I mean, they aren't really wrong but you just gotta give someone a chance every once in a while right? I should probably be writing about a time that I failed, like big time, but I also have too many of those so you get this I guess.
That is a fail but there is no way you could have more fails then me. I think you are one of those really perky and cheery girls and that not a bad thing that is why you are such a great friend your perky and are always in a good mood. Some people think it is annoying but it is a great quality that you can stay happy through a rainy day.
A time I failed at something was pretty much my whole life. We all fail, but it is just how we cope to those failures that makes us strong. I failed at riding a bike so much. Probably much more than the average human being. I failed so many times, and got so many scapes. I had terrible balance so I couldn't ride a bike until the second grade. That was how bad I was. I wanted to quit so many times. It was the times that I decided not to quit that made me a better person.
Good Drew I liked your response. I know you pretty well and you fail A LOT. I could've named all kinds of things you've failed at. But at least you can ride a bike now. Well I don't know if you can, I would hope so. Now that I think of it I haven't seen you ride one......
I have failed many times before I know I know most of every one thinks I am perfect. I am superior to every one else on the planet while that's true I still have failed before. The most recent fail was when I was not able to go 30 days with talking to someone who I usually don't talk too. The reason I failed the challenge was because it just drifted to the back of my head while I went through my day. I am not going to lie I find the challenge very stupid. I have only just today succeeded from a long losing streak. Only thing is today I have forgot to do it.
Hey Albert it is okay just keep trying. You can do it. Maybe you could talk to people if you walk by them on the sidewalk and just say hi that would count I think.Well any ways just keep trying it will get easier. Good luck on your challenge.
There are many people who, not only succeeded, but failed at first. They happen to be celebrities now, but before, they failed at doing something that they were trying to accomplish. One major thing that I, personally have failed at, is taking people as they are. I am not a, so called, "perfect" person, but I will try my best to be the greatest I can be at being myself. Some people may be, on the outside, snotty, judgmental, arrogant, pushy, "ugly", and other awful things. But I have failed at accepting people for who they are, and judging them. I can't do that without consent. Even though, that doesn't make it right. I don't know what their home life is. I don't know what they have been handling, or going through. They could be in a mid-life crisis and I wouldn't know, unless I ask. Their parent could be dying and they try to look happy all the time. So, if someone doesn't "act" like themselves, ask them what's that matter. If they say "nothing", don't disregard it. Please! It could make everything all the better. Some people judge me, but they don't know what I'm going through. So please. Don't judge. Walk a mile in their shoes before you judge.
I think that the biggest fail I have had was riding my bike into a tree. It was my dads bike. I was 8. And the tires were flat. So there fore it was a fail.
I one thing that I have failed at is jump serving. But this is making me try really hard to achieve it. I always have been taught if you can't do something there is NO reason to quiet the is the Brown way. So every since this I been trying, and practicing a lot.
I have failed at trying to ride a bike. Everyone tried to teach me but it failed I ran into trees I fell over and more. But then I final did it and I was so happy that I could ride my bike.
I failed when I tried to come up with a theory for an invention of mine. I then I leaned something new and it didn't match up with my theory, so I tried a new one. But soon learned that that one didn't add up either. I was ready to give up. I was siting in front of the TV watching some commercials; when one came on that had the answer. Though this wasn't related to my idea the product gave me an Idea on how I could make it work; and I did. I've failed with my theories more than once, but this experience has taught me one thing. That if you don't keep trying you'll never know if it's possible.
The biggest failure I've done is doing tests at school. I have studied everything I've done at school, but when there is an essay at the end, I flunk it! Tests are always hard to do every day for me except everyone.
The one time I failed is when I was throwing discus and i scratched my first three throws. But I learned for that to keep your foot planted and to keep trying no matter what. Now that I have failed i van learn for it and get better. When i heard scratch my mind went blank and on my last throw my mind accepted the reality that this is my last shot and I threw my best and I am still improving. So keep trying at the things you think you can't do you will eventually get better.
I have failed over and over again but when I think of fail I don't think school tests and things like that. I think of sining and oh boy do I do that a bunch. Being rude or mean to someone I haven't talked to and just judging them. Or to talk about someone behind there backs. When I think of fail I think it's over and done with can't be fixed. So I don't look at it that way. Look at it like I should of been nicer or not of said that. Learn from what you have done, but never say you have failed. Because then it sounds like you have giving up. Don't give up because you have a bad day or bad game or bad test. God has a plan for every singe one of us!
A time that i have failed was on my first science dissection because i wasnt very careful and didn't care to think that i would get an F on the paper but then i tried harder and my next dissection was an A.
the one thing i will always is doing high jump for the first time i was terrible at it but and a few practices i was quite good at it.
One time I failed was when I first picked up a bow I was off target by at least 10 feet.
One time I failed was when I tried to dress my neice. I was trying to put on her red leggings that perfectly matched her red and gold Christmas dress, but I had a slight problem; She wouldn't stop moving! As I finally got the leggings on, my brother pointed out that they were inside out. Although I tried and tried and tried, I couldn't get it right, but I didn't give up and now that I've practiced, I can dress her perfectly without struggle.
One time I failed and my only time failing (I wish) was a long long long time ago, about and hour ago on April 29th, 2016, at approximately 12:45 p.m. I was playing basketball after lunch and I got the ball (for once) and I was wide open, 4-5 feet in front of the 3 point line, and I shoot the basketball and I felt like it was going in but then it fell and hit the very bottom of the backboard. Even though I didn't learn anything it was still a pretty funny time that I failed
When I was really little I was made fun of quite a lot. One thing was a big target. I couldn't tie my shoes when literally everybody else in the class of 25 students could. I would try over and over again to get those stinking bunny ears to interlock, but I never could. It's not like it was in first grade either. It was finally in fourth grade I learned to tie my shoes. After all those years of countless torment about my velcro slide ons, I'm pretty sure I deserve to know how to tie my shoes now.
I have failed so many times in my life it's not even funny. But the time I most am embarrassed about is one time last year, we were at a gymnastics competition in Iowa, and I was on bars. I didn't fall on the easiest skill in my routine (a squat-on) not once, but twice. Yes, I fell off twice. I was so embarrassed about it because my aunt and uncle that I don't get to see a lot was there, and they watched it all happen. Along with my dad, mom, and brother Brayden. It was definitely a fail, and I have made sure that has never happened again.
I have failed at things may times almost too many times. One of the times I have failed is the first tie I tried o tie my shoes I got them in a big knot that I could no untie. My mom had to cut the shoe laces and get new ones.
I have failed at many thing, but when the word fail comes up I always remember one memory. That memory was before I moved back to Hampton, when I used to take Taekwondo classes. It was 2 days before my very firsts regional tournament. I kept messing up on a special kick and even landed wrong on my ankle. I was just about to give up, but my Taekwondo teacher gave me an inspirational speech. I kept that speech in my head as I practiced that kick, and can you guess what happened? I perfected it! I felt so proud of myself and carried that speech in my head as I went to the tournament. I came home proud with 2 first place medals and a second place medal. The best part about that speech is that I still remember it as if she told me it yesterday.
Don't you love a great old fall on the face. Sometimes great champions are formed by face plants. Do you think Stephen Curry, said "oh man I didn't win, so I'm done with this basketball stuff. My life is full of face plants, what can I say, I'm not perfect at all . But I've learned that failure is step one of success. I have started doing hurdles on top of running long distance. It can be sometime doing hurdles for you want to have the perfect form in order to float over the hurdle and immediately drop your foot to get to the next. I've rolled, tripped, smashed and failed but one thing I haven't done is given up. That is the last resort. There is one way the failure wins, is that you let it beat you. Whatever you don't go down, don't stop, keep pushing.
I have failed at so many things from tests at school to trying to serve the volleyball over hand for the first time and it barely getting 10 ft ahead of me. Everyone has failed at something and has tried again and has had or still has to overcome. Something that I have failed at and succeeded at was my overhand serve for volleyball it was my 5th grade year i finally getting close to the net. I play for a league it is called midstar and that is what helped me to be able to get my overhand serve over. I was so happy I forgot what I was doing.
Everyone has had a time where they have failed an assignment or at sports. For example for me ;when I first time I started pitching during softball on 10 and under. When I first started pitching I wasn't releasing in the wrong spot. For a good pitch you need to figure out where to release or to have a hop or don't hop because it messes you up. Now I'm a pretty good pitch if I say so myself. But this year i don't get to pitch because we made a rule that if your 13 you can't pitch because its 12 and under that is the regulation, also we don't have enough for 13 and under.
