Some say that if at first you don't succeed, you should try and try again. Have you ever heard that saying? At first glance it might sound like a reason not to give your best at the onset since you get second and third chances. Sometimes those other opportunities are the ones that take! Whenever you try something new, there's a good chance you won't get it completely right the first time. You can take what you learn from that experience and apply it to your second or third try. These other chances make attaining the goal that much sweeter. Sometimes the things we work the hardest for are the ones that mean the most. We somehow appreciate them more once we have succeeded. So instead of thinking of what you did wrong or how you've failed, think instead about the next time you'll try and how much better at it you'll be!
