“What would you try if you knew you couldn’t fail?”
|Mr. Steltman - Redirecting ...||
I have been so proud of each and everyone of you over the past two weeks. As a class, you are truly kind, caring, and compassionate. You work hard in class and stay focussed. I have been incredibly proud of the dedication and effort that you put into the robots, the excitement and engagement I’ve seen as you take on codesters, as well as your efforts in math club and Annie Jr. Thanks so much for being so great. As we think about inspiration, iteration and ideas of pushing ourselves forwards let’s continue that idea for your blog post. I want you to think to yourself, what would you try if you could not fail? What would you try that was different, what would you be, how much further could you go if you knew that you couldn’t fail? Is fear of failure or rejection stopping you from accomplishing something you’ve always wanted to do? Shoot for the stars and this week, tell us,
“What would you try if you knew you couldn’t fail?”

This is just a summary of what I wrote the first time. So basically, if you believed that dying was a failure, you wouldn't ever die, blah blah blah, and that you would often be convinced to work for people in army's because you can never die, and you invincible and all that, and if I could never fail, I would jump off the CN tower. Done.

I know the period is missing because I know what a proper sentence looks like and what types of words and such go where, and where it would make sense to put a period. So, I guess that Josh wasn't exactly wrong, but he could have done it better.

if I never failed, I would learn to drive, and I would try every skill there is in gymnastics I am kinda happy we do fail though beacause you learn from falling, boring sappy stuff,and would get a job and do what I want.

If I knew I couldn't fail I would try do do my best for everything I can manage. I would also practice every thing just in case. I would practice everyday as well so I could be better at everything. If failure wasn't an option I would never try anything dumb or risky like jumping of the C.N tower (*josh*). I wouldn't join the army or be a pilot or do any job that might risk your life

If I knew I couldn't fail, I would try almost every idea I turn down in my day to day life. I understand it sounds like I'm just trying to get the easy way out with this but I have a reason. The reason we don't chase our dreams, no matter how distant, is because of fear. Fear we are going to embarrass ourselves, or spend our lives on a lost cause, or get severely hurt or injured or die. All of these are situations where you would be failing. But to finish the dang question! I would try writing books, genetically modifying animals so I could name them after random objects, ice climbing (was going to try it last winter with my Aunt but never got to it), and heck, I would rob a bank (also muddle in dark arts)! Lots of ideas would grant endless happiness and I hate those ideas! sadness is a natural human emotion and with it I am more human than anyone else who tries to drown it out. Well anyways! That's what I'd do if I couldn't fail!

If I could any thing with out failing I wouldn't do anything. I wouldn't do anything because I don't want to not fail. The one thing that makes a dream a dream is the fact that you might fail. If you could do everything than you would never dream. if you don't dream you can't plan anything fun or good. Dreams are ideas ideas are decisions decisions are actions actions is why the world for me works. Sometimes stuff like failing is a good thing. In your mind you learn by mistakes with out failing mistakes can't be made. If you think about failing is actaully the best thing in life. Take the chocolate chip cookie for example. What happened I think is a guy tried to make oatmeal cookies. the guy spiled chocolate chips into the batter by mistake and the chocolate cookie was born. I am not shure if thats true or not but mistakes or failers. So thanks to failer we have the chocolate chip cookie! That is only one example of failer for thing and total sucsess for another. Like one of the think about that today things: shoot for the moon and if you miss you land in the stars. failer is the comet you hit off of when you shoot for the moon. Stars are really bright and the moon is reflecting a stars light calling people. The stars are will you want to be and failer will get you there.

Now, I want to be honorable here and say that I wouldn't want to do something without failing, because then where's your sense of success right? But, then I'd be lying. There are so many doors not failing opens up. If I could, I'd find a studio that does acro. (Not acro gymnastics. Yes, acro is a type of dance too.) I've wanted to do this for several years now, but was too afraid. Of the pain it might bring me. Of my lack of proper training. My lack of technique. My lack of strength. Of not being accepted by my peers because DUH, they're better than me. There's also the pesky fact that my studio doesn't do acro, and I obviously can't be in two studios at once. Of course, I would never leave the studio I'm in now. I couldn't leave. I don't want to. But if I was allowed to be in two studios at once, I would audition for the acro team. Because of this whole 'not failing' thing, I would instantly make it on the team. I wouldn't have to practice. Everything would just come to me. But if it were that easy, I would persuade my current teacher to include acro in our studio and BAM! Problem solved. If I couldn't fail, I'd do everything the world has to offer. Heck, the universe has to offer! I'd go to space! There's no chance of me failing right? I would do everything in just one day. Remember, I can't fail. I would do everything no one could ever do, because I can't fail. Life would be a breeze! I could alter the course of my path with just a thought! I could go back in time and fix every stupid mistake I've ever made. I could travel into the future, come back, and be top of the class! I could fix pollution, poverty and crime in less than an hour because I can't fail. There's nothing I couldn't do to better myself and others. I'd do EVERYTHING that exists and then invent new things to do so I don't get bored. Because again; I can't fail. Heck, with this kind of power, I could get rid of all bad governments and gain control of the world in one fell swoop! My life would perpetuate into a state of blissful immortality if I wanted it to. I'd do everything possible and everything impossible, because I simply CAN'T FAIL!

Failing is a good way to learn your mistakes, and it is an essential piece of our life's. We all want to start from being successful to rich or whatever it is but you have to start from the beginning and work all the way up to in order to achieve it. We've all have made mistakes in our life's, (especially me). At Thursday, I was trying to remind everyone that the circuit border works on chrome books, and I didn't notice that I accidentally wrote it on a whiteboard with a sharpie. Yes, I looked at myself and I was playing stupid. However, that was a very small mistake that I have made in my life.

If I could never fail I would make a video game. I'm not taking about those games that all you do is click and drag or jump on platform games. I'm taking about a full get things---explore---fight people---beat a boss at the end to win, type of game. And the game will never fail. Also from that game I could start a business. Yup a business. Just imagine having a business that would never fail. I could be rich and be able to make a whole series of games to go with it. Scared of failing has always been my flu but if I couldn't fail I would be able to push myself to the max .That is two things I would do if I couldn't fail.

If I could not fail what would I do? Hmm... I would invent a machine, with wings, so I could fly. Yes, there are planes, but I don't think that is actually like a bird or something. I wouldn't actually do it now because if the machine works then suddenly doesn't work, I would be in midair then falling to my death. And let me tell you, I DO NOT WANT TO DO THAT!!! And before I make the machine, I will have to probably take a lot of courses that I won't understand and study a lot. If I wouldn't fail, then my motto will be... I believe I can FLY (actually it wouldn't be that)!

I could do whatever I wanted, there's plenty I would do if I could not fail. Though I think this is not quite what I was meant to do for the blog post this week, this is what I would do if I knew I couldn't fail.
4/10/2017 04:33:07 pm
If I knew that I couldn't fail, I would never doubt myself. I know that a lot of people doubt themselves because they think they can't do it. I would never say how "I can't do this or, I ca't do that!" I would say that "I can do or, I will do it!" I would also be the best in my trampoline class and get my double front pike.

If I knew I couldn't fail, I would try every single risk that would come at me in the day. For example I was walking to school and then there were two paths, one was a dangerous path with a train passing by. The other one was friendly with unicorns and rainbows . I would take the dangerous path. Another one would be at Niagara Falls where the boat was about to plummet down and people would jump off when I would stay on.

I think we should all do our best to not fail. One of the reasons is because we all have had mistakes and people have been thinking oh it's a little mistake.Well it doesn't matter how big or small of a mistake you made you should always try your best not to. Even if you do make a mistake you can also try not to repeat them again . People have also misjudged this and have been to hard on themselves. For example if you accidentally broke your friends toy or a thing they like they will obviously be mad at you. You don't want to be too hard on yourself but you still got to know it was your fault . You can also get yourself into a I CANNOT FAIL NO MATTER WHAT SITUATION!!!!!!! When you come across this problem you should always stay focused no matter what . The reason why you should stay focused because if you don't then that is when you will mess up so it is very important that you stay focused otherwise you will make mistakes in your life .

If I could never fail I would do everything that I usually would not do. Why would hold back if you could never fail, I would build city's just to burn them down, I would rob a bank, I would learn dark magic. Who am I kidding I would build transporters, I would stop pollution and global warming, but why stop there the possibilities are infinite. I would build a train with Link on it waving the master sword like Queen Elizabeth and her scary wave, HA while I am at it I would try to mimic that and become the hippie that imitates people as they walk by on the side walk (Looking at you Nathan with your nightmare giving smile). I would become a millionaire and take over Donald Trump and his fellow Americans, but why stop there. Because you would be to over confident you would lose who you were and join me in the underworld for people that are not for that world (Our Class). I think that fear and embarrassment are good feeling to have every once and a while but if I could do anything... You know what, lets just leave this at a happy not and not talk about my future (and the death of the world). So end of story don't rob a bank (Once again, everybody in our class).

I would do a lot of things if I could never fail, but I kinda like it how you can fail, it makes life more, well interesting. If I could never fail I would make a time machine, so I could go back in time. It would be really cool to go back in time and see everything happen again and even see things that I did not see before. I would also make a machine that could make you invisible, because hey, every person want to become invisible right? I would not do anything dumb or stupid, just because you can't fail doesn't mean it's right. I know maybe turning invisible and time travelling isn't right ethither, but whatever it would be really cool to do that. I would probably do a lot more things then that but, this is just some of the things I would do.

If I could not fail I would make a force field so asteroids won't damage earth and if the sun turns into a gas giant, and earth dries up we won't die. YAY us, Sun BOOOO.

If I couldn't fail. Hmm. That could be invincibility. Because if you believed that dying is a failure, then you couldn't fail. Also in which you couldn't die. Sorry I should've said those two the other way around. But this, this could be something anybody. Sorry, everybody has wished for or at least has thought of in their life. Unless you haven't. Thank you for proving me wrong. But basically, you would never look like an idiot, never fail, never fall, never be underestimated. You would be someone and I should say a lot of people's hero's. Someone to look up to. But again, you would be guilted into doing things for other people a lot. Like, people could ask you to help out in an army, and you can not say no, because they would give many reasons why you should help. "You can't die, Just give us some time!". If I couldn't fail I would try to do the impossible. No not jump out of a helicopter from an amazing height without a parachute and land through a tiny hole in a ceiling onto a trampoline. It would be to try and high jump onto the CN tower.
