You’ve failed many times you may 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. R.H.Macy failed seven times before his store in New York caught on. English novelist John Creasey got 753 rejection slips before he published 564 books.Babe Ruth struck out 1,330 times but he also hit 714 home runs.

Don’t worry about failure. Worry about the chances you miss when you don’t even try…..Don’t ever give up, Coach Pete
