[dropcap type=”1″]Y[/dropcap]ou miss a hundred percent of the shots you never take. This is one line that has been repeated over and over again and has always been my motivation. You know this girl who always sits across the table from you in school every day? You know you like her and your heart skips a beat every time she smiles at you. Maybe you’re meant to be together, maybe not but until and unless you take the next big step you will never know.
There are hundreds of thing that can change your life forever and you’re missing out on it. Who knows you were meant to be a singer but you were always too scared or shy to sing in front of an audience. Maybe you want to try out for the basketball team or you like to dance but you’re afraid to perform on stage just because you think people are going to laugh at you. Life is not short, there will be thousands of times that people are going to help and will laugh with you, and there will be thousands more that people will push you and laugh at you. But I assure you, at one point in your life you’re going to ask this question to yourself. What if?
Think again, Which is worse, failing or never trying ?[quote_box_right]The thing is life is hard and you are going to fail in a lot of stuff before you excel at doing anything. Maybe you’re meant to be the next Zuckerberg or the next Bill Gates, you never know until you try.[/quote_box_right]
I’m a person who believes in learning from my mistakes, I will fail but I will come back again. The thing is life is hard and you are going to fail in a lot of stuff before you excel at doing anything. Maybe you’re meant to be the next Zuckerberg or the next Bill Gates, you never know until you try. These two names that I just took, it was not easy for them. Maybe they did not dream about owning a multi-million dollar company, but what if they never took the first step? Mark Zuckerberg would just be an ordinary person who did not touch the lives of a billion people through social networking. The laptop or the phone I’m using now wouldn’t have existed if Bill Gates did not develop his dream.
There have been countless of times that I have thought back and said to myself maybe I should have done that. Who knows? My life could have been different; my life could have been better just because I took that one step. One thing that I have learnt is you never fail, you learn. You fall down once but you get up and vow never to make the same mistake again, people push you to the ground and once more you get up. Because failing is a part of life, learning from your mistakes is how you’re going to excel at anything. Don’t wake up one day just to think “what if I had taken a shot at it? What if?”
