I am proud to be a failure!

Friday, March 25, 2011

Did you know:

Albert Einstein was 4 years old before he could talk...

Ludwig von Beethoven's music teacher said he would be hopeless if he tried to write music...

Thomas Edison's teachers told him he was too stupid to learn anything when he was a young boy...

A newspaper editor fired Walt Disney because he lacked imagination and had no good ideas...

J K Rowling was homeless and destitute when she began writing the Harry Potter series...

Winston Churchill failed the sixth grade and barely made it through school...

Michael Jordan was cut from his High School basketball team...

Abraham Lincoln lost election after election before he was elected as president...

Bill Gates is a college dropout...

Steven Spielberg is a High School dropout...

Marilyn Monroe was fired by FOX because she was 'unattractive'...

Henry Ford's first two auto manufacturing companies failed...

If you have failed at something you are in great company! Remember making mistakes does not make you a weak or bad person. The worst flaw in character is letting your problems defeat you or keep you from trying again. Let your failures be your teachers. Learn from your mistakes and become one of history's great failures.

    Wonderful reminder. We cannot succeed if we don't try. Some trials are bound to be failures. This is how we learn.

    Thanks for the reminder that those who fail are part of an outstanding group! I think I will share this one with my students next week when we return to school if you don't mind.
