Pressure of Failing
What is failing to me? Failing to me is when I am unsuccessful at my goals. Failing isn't one of the best things but when I fail it motivates me to do better a next time. The thing I don't like about failing is that it makes you feel like you have so much more to do to accomplish something. Another thing is that it gives you negative thoughts and makes you feel that you can't do anything right.
The opposite of failing is more than just pasting. It’s achieving your aspiration and living your life happily. Everybody fears failing. But at one point of your life you over come that and it strengthens you. Here are 3 stories about this topic. Enjoy!!
My first year in high school was a mess. Just passing my grades and failing 1 or 2 classes got me thinking about my future. I was wondering if I just did well enough would that help me in the future. Or if I pushed my self to the limit what that be better or would it be a waste of time. It's time for me to think about the choices that I'm going to make. I don't want to regret any of the things I've done in the future because I know I had a chance to do better but I choose not to. I made myself a promise. I promised myself that I would do better in school. I really don't want anyone else help but my teachers, I want to know that I can do the best by myself. The reason why I want to do this by myself is because I want to know that I can reach up to my own potential so it betters me in the future. I don't want to have to rely on nobody when it comes to anything. This is my step forward of pursuing that goal. I also want to let my friends and family know that I can do greatness due to my ability.
Some of things that I've done last year will not repeat it self, but some things I will never regret. There were times were I had fun, and I want to keep enjoying those moments with the people that I love. I'm in 10th grade now and I don't want school to take over my whole life because it seems to me that my whole childhood just passed by my eyes. I don't want to ruin the amount of time that I have, struggling and beating myself up for perfect grades. Basically what I'm trying to say is, I want to do my best this year without people getting in the way, but at the same time I don't want to over due it and regret it in the future. This year in 10th grade I'm willing to do all I can to get a good grade and also spend more time having fun.
Next year I'm turning 16 and I want to get my drivers permit just like my older brother Andrew. I know I have to do a test first, but if I past I still have to go through my school work with outstanding grades too. I really want to drive before I'm 18 because I will be more experienced and so I won’t have to rely on people to drive me places. The first time I saw my brother driving I was actually a little jealous because since he's the oldest he gets anything he wants, but I have to work for what I want. It was also cool seeing my 17 year old brother driving. I wanted to drive after him but my dad said he didn't want to take any chances because I don't have a permit. So I really can't wait to drive now. I really have to work my hardest to get what I want.
