Don’t Be Afraid to Fail - Scoutmaster Minute

Don’t worry about failure. Worry about the chances you miss when you don’t even try.

You’ve failed many times, although you might not remember. You fell down the first time you tried to walk. You almost drowned the first time you tried to swim, didn’t you? Did you hit the ball the first time you swung a bat? Heavy hitters, the ones who hit the most home runs, also strike out a lot. Babe Ruth struck out 1,330 times, but he also hit 714 home runs. R. H. Macy failed seven times before his store in New York caught on. English novelist John Creasey received more than 700 rejection slips before he published over 600 books.

Don’t worry about failure. Worry about the chances you miss when you don’t even try.
