I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying. – Michael Jordan
There's a handful of things I've learned in life, and sadly I've also seen those that have almost just failed at life! It's one thing to try and try again, but I've realized individuals that absolutely REFUSE to learn a new skill or even attempt it, because it's just easier to 'let someone else do it' will probably be the first to go in a zombie apocalypse or if just left Home Alone like little Kevin McCallister I would imagine your parents may arrive home to find a corpse rigamortis-style in the fetal position hidden in a closet while there is an entire kitchen full of food that you seem to have somehow been unable to open or prepare on your own without the assistance of someone else! Hopefully you are an able body individual, because I am quite sure that my 12-year-old niece is quite capable of ALL of these things, and you would be surprised at how many people I have met where their refusal to learn is going to cause them to continually fail at life.
