Have you ever failed?

Thanks to Twitter: The English Teacher (Karenne) for this idea

Of course everyone has failed some time in our lives. The key to success is to fall several times. We all learn through our mistakes.

Do you know anyone famous who failed in achieving his goals?
This video shows you some few examples.

Hello Miss Ale
I think that is not the best thing to do , to fail, but when you fail then you learn the mistake you had done and then you don´t repeat it again. Imagine I fail in a test and yuo corrected then I can learn the mistake I had done and in onother test I can make that part without any problem..
Nice blog

hello miss Ale,
Is very good the video is fasinating I like it a lot yes I failed a lot of times and after that I thought and what I thuoghtwas correct I I never fail I couldn´t learn nothing at all.
and after my mitake I knew that I never repeated again, but I know that I can impruve more a more but if I don´t fail in the "place/right way,etc" that I am working or learning I can not learn either work.
I like this post very much the video tell the truth
It´s in the right way the video.

Hello Miss Ale,
What a great video! I really thought about it and thought about that anyone makes a mistake and as the video says, if you havent been failed never in your life...Thats not like because as Miss Ale says we live of the mistakes. I didnt knew that famouse were failed, I had never thought aabout it. I had neever lisnted that Walt Disney was failed of a newspaper! Neither than Michel Jordan neither than Abrahmm Lincon! These is a geat video that teaches a lot to you because people, that hadnt seen these video, think that famouse persons, or as we say now celebrites or heroes, think that they had never been failed because they think that they are accepted everywere! I think that the video trasmits you that every one neither heroes or celebrites or normal people can do mistakes and they learn about them because if like I fall of a bicicle because I ssteped on a rock. Then the other one is not going to step on a rock because he knows that he is going to fall! You understand?!? The blog and the post is great! Keep on!

Hello Miss Ale,

I think it's great the idea of the video, it's excellent. I knew such things like Thomas Edison who was so stupid, but I didn't know that Michael Jackson had cried. I think it's excellent this video.

See you tomorrow,

Hello Miss Ale,
I think the video is great, it's true, if you don't fail, you don't live and also it is true that life=risk...

P.S.:I don't understand how a teacher can say to a pupil that he/she is stupid!

Hello Miss Ale!
I think that failing isn't at all fun nor good. But it is good to fail because that helps you get up and get better in that subject or thing!
Because if you never fail you will never achive because everyone needs to fail for there achivement, if not it wouldn't be an achivement. Failing, for some people (for mee) is very bad, but really it helps you get better and better and gives you more determination. But also once you failed you don't have to go look for another thing you have to keep on trying like all those people on the video!
I liked the video a lot and ass all your videos this one was very encouriging!

Hello Miss Ale
this was a very good video because failing is part of life and having everithing perfect with no failing it would be SO boring, I liked the part of LIFE=RISK it is a very clear message.

Miss Ale,
This video is great! I liked it. I think that this video tells us to don't give up! We have to try and test ourself as much as we can to be better (at what you want to be good.) It tells you how good is to fail because, Michel Jordan that he faild a lot, became a great basketball player. The message of this video is to DON'T GIVE UP!!!

Hello Miss Ale

What a great video i really liked it.It is great how every people fail some day. And the heroes when fail they make an enourmous effort to do it better . And they can. Like Micheal Jordan that when he was small he cried because he was kicked out of the bascketball team.
This video was like the one that told you of heroes and celebrities.

Hello miss ale:

To be sincere, I only distinged some few, the first ones were not people I really know, but after, the people were more and more recognisable, such as Thomas Edison, Walt Disney, Micheal Jordan, etc.

Hope you put another video as this one, I love these kind of videos, thy look sort of discovery channel.

Hello Miss Ale, the video is great!
We always have mistakes, because of those mistakes we learn. If you cheat, you are never going to understand the supject. If you cheat, you are being selfish to your self. If you don´t get mistakes you are not a human being, because all the persons, at least, gets one mistake on his or hers life, thats why they know and always says you to don´t cheat. Theres always a person of your family, that reminds you that.
the blog is great...keep on posting
ps: sorry I didn´t blog this week, is that I had a lot of home schooling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello Miss Ale.

I lear by many years that if you fail you learn about your mistacs. I dont like failing,but I dont reamember if I fail.I think yes. but eberybody must have fail. No??.
Failing helps you to see your mestake. For me is okey you fail you learn your mistakeand and you dont makit more again.It isen good to hell your mistak, Is good fiksing it. I think that the people that the video mensun fail and fiks there mistake.
Bye!!!!

Miss Ale,

I think that the video is wright in saying that if yo never failed you never lived because nobody is perfect but it is no reason to give up you true dreams.

Hello Miss Ale,
I think that we can learn better from our mistakes... but not to repeat them!!!
You can't have always done everything perfect every time you try something new. It takes time to learn something, though some might have more facility than others, but everybody makes mistakes.
If you don't fall off the bycicle, you will never learn how to ride it because you always make a little movement that can make you fall.It is natural.
Nobody is born knowing everything perfectly, that is why we go to school, to learn new things, and if we fail, we know that it is natural and that we can improve.
I loved the video, it is very significative.
See you on Monday morning,
Eleonora
