Failure

We are all scared to fail.  It means we did something wrong or that we are perhaps unable to do the task at all.  It never feels good to fail, but sometimes you have to fail in order to succeed. 

 One of my favorite quotes is from Thomas Edison.  It took Edison almost 2000 tries to get a working lightbulb but when asked about all of these failures all he would say is that he found 2000 ways how not to make a lightbulb. 

Here are some other famous failures.

 
There are even more examples of people who were considered failures but became huge successes.  So please keep in mind that if you never try anything you will never fail, but you will also never find success.
 
Is there anything that you have ever tried and failed at?  Did you just give up or did you try again?

  2. These are kind of inspiring. It's cool reading about famous people's failures and they still ended up famous and rich, and somehow changed the world in their own way. People say that you have to fail to succeed. But i think that you need to tell yourself that what you're going for, is truly what you want to do. Just because you failed at something doesn't mean you should keep going for it, it's your choice if you want to succeed or not..I went for things that other people wanted me to do, and i pretty much failed most of all of them, i never got back up, i just accepted what happened and moved on...but once i told myself on what i wanted to do, i went for them and succeeded. You just have to have your mind on the right track.

  4. I think its cool how these people have failed yet continued to do art and ended up famous. This just shows that hard work can almost take you anywhere. I will still probably never continue on with art in the future just because i always fail.

  6. This is really neat. Most people probably think that these people never 'failed' but this shows how they were not perfect. Its kind of inspiring in some way.

  9. These quotes are unique. Full of insperation, but they arent really art... They are just quotes

  10. it seems that these people are very relatable. but they arent, these are all lies.

  11. The are very weird because the fact that theyre true makes it awkward. Even though they were famous people never say what was in their background. Its weird I think.

    ReplyDelete
  12. These quotes are pretty amazing and true peices of art

    ReplyDelete
  13. This quotes are kind of inspiring, but i dont we can call this art.

    ReplyDelete
  14. this is funny but true becuase even though they are really famous doesnt mean that they have any embarrasing moments in their life.

  18. Theses quotes are cool, but it doesn't really look like art work to me. I am not really a fan of this art work.

    ReplyDelete
  19. These are very ironic. The thought of people doubting successful people just shows how people can push them harder to do better.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  24. Well i tried basketball in the 3rd grade it was only a camp, but still i tried and it was fun at first, but it just wasn't me. So then in the 8th grade i tried again, but still i didn't last. I only lasted a day in practes and sense i never really played i was realy confused so i quit. I still play basketbal (well sorta) but only the game horse and im really bad at it so i need a longer word. Also when we play i play in my driveway with my brother and dad because they mostly play aginst eachother so i don't have to do much and when my mom plays shes worse so we mostly laugh at her.

  25. Amazing what people can do when they set their mind to it. When i was little i couldn't read very well and didn't underestand the teachers, so i taught myself.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think these are really cool. It shows not to give up. I tryed basketball in 7th grade but wasn't very good so i quit. But i'll been in dance since i was really little and i used to be very bad at it. Now im one of the best in the class and get solos.

  27. There were times when i gave up on something because i couldnt do it anymore. For example, i gave up on driving in snow because i cant drive in snow. But there were times where i was having a hard time snowboarding but i still kept trying.

    ReplyDelete
  28. These are very cool. its great to know that people had a dream and didnt give up and now they made it. it is inspiring to know that if you keep trying you can make it work.

    ReplyDelete
  29. thats cool!!! i like how they all mean something and its just not random things.

    ReplyDelete
  30. This is very true and people often dont realize that most famous people didnt just get it handed to them. They had to work at it and pick them selves back up.

    ReplyDelete
  31. These are really cool stories. They often can inspire people when they think they cant accomplish their dreams. Never give up.

    ReplyDelete
  32. i dont think this is art but it kind of insperational. i wouldnt like to do this

    ReplyDelete
  33. Failure is for people who try to do many things. At least they get out there and try! rather than being scared to fail.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I don't find these quotes art work. On th eother hand they are inspirational.

    ReplyDelete
  35. sometimes when I do an art project I fail miserably, but then i just try harder and fix it most of the time. Failure isn't fun, but it is nice to know that some very successful have failed along their way to greatness.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I try to draw something really good, but it turns out bad, so I just give up and try to draw another thing. I can draw a few good things. I like reading about famous people's failures, because it seems like they're perfect and they never do anything wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  37. These are very cool ideas of how to express things that have happened to you in a more elegant, and easier way. I have failed at a few things, and i did keep trying and kept trying and eventually i did succeed. I love these ideas and think that they are so inspiring and can change peoples lives.

  38. "failure defeats losers, and inspires winners". i really like this but just dont see how it ties together with art.

    ReplyDelete
  39. It almost inspired me to do my homework, almost

  40. these are pretty interesting and cool to read. But they aren't really art work, but still pretty cool.

    ReplyDelete
  41. This is actually really inspiring. It's cool to think that really well known people have failed but never gave up and came out extremely successful despite their failures

    ReplyDelete
  42. This makes me feel alot better about myself knowing about their faliurs, and knowing how they became very successful people. This is really cool.

    ReplyDelete
  43. when we lift you may not be able to get the a certain wight but you just have work harder and keep being able to work your way back up with never quitting

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think its cool how these people have failed yet continued to do art and ended up famous. This just shows that hard work can almost take you anywhere. I will still probably continue on with art in the future just because i like it.

    ReplyDelete
  45. People never really look at failures but successes. But once brought up I really thought how much all of these people could have given up so easily but have try again and changed the world in all different ways. I did try basketball my 5th grade year. I wasn't very coordinated with my hands so I gave up. Next thing I know I found the game of soccer and I'm in love with the game.

    ReplyDelete
  46. This is very inspirational because they failed but yet they got back up and tried again that is really cool.

    ReplyDelete
  47. These are so ironic because they "lacked imagination", yet they still manage to get back up and prove everyone wrong. I love how they don't care about what others said.

    ReplyDelete
  48. This is interesting because these people are such an inspiration now it is silly to think that at one point they were failures.

    ReplyDelete

  51. It is very inspirational. You should always try something new even if you might fail. Try new things

    ReplyDelete
  52. In some point in life we are going to fail. These's quotes are so inspiring. Just like the famous motto. If you don't succeed, try try again.

  55. It just goes to show everyone is human and makes mistakes. It is so funny because of the irony.

    ReplyDelete
  56. there are many thing i ve tried to do and they ended up going really bad. Most of the time i just start over so its better. I like things to be perfect

    ReplyDelete
  57. These are really cool. I have always failed at making noses in your art class, but I belive that one one day, maybe, I could draw a nose if I tried incredibly hard.

    ReplyDelete
  61. These are really inspiring because even they biggest, best, and brightest people have had failures and been rejected. It's just a nice reminder that we're all human
