If at First You Don’t Succeed…

if at first..



If at first you don’t succeed you are normal.

People fail and that’s part of life. It’s part of your life.

So get used to it. Don’t get too used to it though.

Failure is just part of the success curve. You try things once, twice or many times until it works.

There is a whole learning curve involved in getting things right. If we didn’t have that process of trying and trying again nothing would ever get done.

That’s’ why pencils have erasers.

Mistakes lead to better answers and sometimes unexpected results.

First thoughts are often wrong and we often need to try things out several times before getting our ideas straight.

Pencils have erasers so we can change our minds and try new answers and solutions.

In life we have to expect to get things wrong.

Ultimately isn’t that what life is all about. Learning, trying and doing.

Don’t let the fear of failure hold you back.

Give it a try and another try.
