Don’t Be Afraid to Fail

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. 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. 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.

Scout Tip

Enjoy the Journey

Next week at the Court of Honor we will celebrate your accomplishments. But, this week, take some time and think about the journey. Never again will you be this age, this rank, or completing this grade in school.

Enjoy the Journey!!!
