"You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you do not try."
--Beverly Sills, Opera Singer

Twice, General Douglas MacArthur was refused admission to West Point. But he was accepted on the third try and would march into history books. Famous author Rudyard Kipliong received a rejection letter from the San Francisco Examiner saying, "Sorry, Mr. Kipling, but you just do not know how to use the English language."

The music teacher of Opera star Enrico Caruso told him he had no voice at all and could not sing. The schoolteachers of Einstein described him as "mentally slow, unsociable and adrift in his foolish dreams." By age 46, Beethoven was completely deaf, and he wrote five of his greatest symphonies without hearing a note. At age 66, after several political defeats, Winston Churchill became one of the greatest prime ministers of Britain.

You get my point, right? Life is about overcoming! So do not worry about failing; worry about not trying.
