Many individuals experience different amounts of failure in their lifetimes. Many learn and grow from their defeats and others let it keep them from succeeding. I made sure that failure was another obstacle to success. Icons like Randy moss didn’t let failure get the best of him when he didn’t make the freshman high school football team, and look at him now, he is one of the best Football players of all time.
In the article, Want to Get Into College by Angel B. Perez, a Vice President and Dean of Admission and Financial Aid at Pitzer College, in Claremont, California (2012), argues that failure is an option in human nature and that 's people should embrace it and learn how to recover from it to gain experience to make less mistakes. Perez point of view of this topic is that there 's no perfection and it 's fine to mistakes, failing and getting back up even stronger and more experience than before doesn 't show failure it shows courage and heart that you don’t give up no matter the predicament you in. The author’s purpose is that there’s no perfection in the world, he wants more students that want to fail and not afraid to show it but can also get
Roth isn 't the only writer who had bad experiences with failure, better yet a writer Tim Harford wrote a book Adapt:Why Success Always Starts With Failure. In this book a quote stands out that immediately makes the reader think of Roths stories. “Few of our own failures are fatal”(Harford). This is very convincing because many people take there failures in a harsh way, and both Roth and Harford explain that failures aren 't fatal.
Failure is vital to the growth of not only heroes, but ordinary people as well, as it teaches them how to move past their guilt and negativity in order to persevere. Through the article Nine Ways to Fail Better, the author shows that it’s not easy to deal with failure, but it is extremely important to move on. The author states, “Blaming yourself for the bad things that happen to you--are probably the biggest reason people metabolize failure badly.” In expressing that one should put the blame on themselves, “for the bad things that happen to [them]” stresses the idea that failure is often inevitable, and there is not much that can change the outcome of the situation. Additionally, there is no sense in feeling shameful about failure.
In life, failures sometimes happen. It happens to everyone. However, failures don’t define us as a person, but it builds you as one from those experiences. In my seventeen years, I have experienced my own share of blunders, each teaching me a new lesson. The person who succeeds without first failing hasn't really learned anything; in failures, there can be a learning experience and an opportunity to grow.
The satisfaction you feel when you are successful always doesn't come easy sometimes you need to fail in order to know what the true joy of being successful feels like. In the essay The Right to Fail written by an American critic William Zinsser, he states “Don't be afraid to fail!” “The right to fail is one of the few freedoms that the country does not grant its citizens.” Zinsser depicts the rich truth that you can fail, you can get back up and try again. You do not need to fear failure everyone makes mistakes and in America that is acceptable and understandable.
“I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying. (Michael Jordan)” Humans learn from their failures, but they learn nothing if they do not try to succeed as Michael Jordan explains in this quotation. We must try to truly learn, as simply being taught does not lead to true understanding.
As a 17 year old, my view of failure is when I fall below my family’s expectations in my academic endeavors. I have not had many failures that have crippled me, but I have had a few failures that have caused detours in my path to be in pharmaceuticals and in epidemiology. J. K. Rowling says that “it is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all.” She is saying that life comes with failure, which gives you experiences to move on and continue living. I have absolutely no plans to live cautiously; I want to gain these life experiences from my failures.
I have always believed these lessons help me in my everyday life and the classroom. If I don’t do well on a test, forget my homework or I don’t do well on a project I don’t let it get me down. I think learning what you did wrong, fixing it, and getting it right the next time should be the goal. A failure needs to become a learning experience that you can build off of.
This is where failure comes in. Sherry proclaims that we need to recognize that this fear of failure is a positive teaching tool. To make this tool work, teachers and parents need to accept that if the student doesn’t learn the material, they must follow through with their promises of flunking. Both teachers and parents have to realize that the future of the child is at stake, and only good intentions come from the
We sometimes think if it is hard we are not going to make it. We think everything is hard, but we don't give up to accomplish what we want to do, we will never give up. Sometimes is hard to not give up, we have to have determination on that goal. As a student we that quote i learn that giving up is not a choice; when we choose to give up is because we don't think on the cosequenses that the choice is going to impact our lifes.
