I always say never be afraid of rejections. First, at least you tried. Second, it's their lost not yours. For me it's better to try than not to try at all. I think what's worse for me is never trying at all...

Failing is one of the spices of life, we cannot learn and we cannot grow without it, and success is very wonderful feeling if we had tried to failed before we reach success, well the worse maybe in failures is when you never tried at all, then you are a total loser.

I think never trying at all is worst than you tried then failed. At least when you failed you learn how to stand up again. because for every failure we learned so much, we learn how to move on, to walk through the ups and down of life and be able to handle life carefully.

I think that an old person regrets the things he or she wanted to do but didn't end up doing. I think that never trying is worse than failing. During trying to do something challenging it might seem that success is a long way away but it might be just around the corner. A person wanting to do something particular should keep trying. I failed my practical driving test many times and almost ended up wanting to try again. I had one last attempt and amazingly passed my practical driving test. My older sister wants to learn how to drive but she hasn't ever tried. I hope that she will one day be able to learn how to drive because driving a car would make her life much easier.

Hi Santosmarichris, You are abosuletely right when you say it is better to try and fail then never try at all. Because if you try then you may fail or may not fail but if you donot try then you are a failure. As we have a saying that only horse riders fall in the war, those who crawl wont fall. So it is better to ride on horse rather than crawl on your all fours like cowards.

Look into this"Never used failure as an excuse for not trying again.We will not be able to undo the damage or reverse the consequences but we can always make a new start."...Failing is just a part of growing up,it teaches us on how to be strong and to be wise in our dicision in life.Everyone of us experience failure.Its better to failed that not to try because you will never know until what is your capability.

Never trying is the worse one. Because if you don't try then you'll never succeed. Its in trying that we fail, but if we try and try we have a chance to succeed.

Hi santos mari chris: I totally agree with you. If you stop doing things just because you feel worried about failing you will ask yourself what would happend if you give yourself the oportunity to take a risk. If we fail, well that's hard but we are humans and we have the right to be wrong. We can't control these things, life is full of risks, that's what actually make our world an interesting place. ALVARO
