Don't be afraid to fall

  1. Don't Be Afraid to Fall

    You've failed many times,
    altough you don't remember,
    You fell down the first time
    you tried to walk.
    You almost drowned the first
    time you tried to swim.
    Did you hit the ball the first
    you swung the bat?
    Heavy hitters, the ones who
    hit the most home runs, also
    strike out a lot.
    R.H. Macy failed seven times be-
    fore his store in New York caught
    on.
    Novelist John Creasey got 753
    rejection slips before he published
    564 books.
    Babe Ruth hit 714 home runs,
    but he also struck out 1,330 times.
    The message is, don't worry a
    about failure.
    Worry instead about the chances
    you miss when you don't even try.
