Hii everyone How are you doing..?? Hope all is good ,, Let's Start
How come all we ever read about is success? People who do something well .people who win medals . What about the rest of us? How come nobody ever writes about failing – something that most of us are really good at?
1. One of the most successful failures was Norway's song in the 1978 Eurovision song contest. This song called mile after mile , was so beautifully boring that every country in Europe gave it zero points. The singer , Jan Teigan was the first Norwegian to succeed in getting no points at all in the Eurovision. He became a star overnight, but the winner, Izhar Cohen from Israel (with the song A-Ba-Ni-Bi), was almost forgotten in the excitement .
2. Crimes often fail – But some fail better than others. David Goodall thought he had planned the perfect crime. One fine January day, Mr.Goodall walked into a store. He bagan to put things under his coat when suddenly eight men grabbed him. It seems that the store was having a meeting of it's detectives that day. Good work Mr.Goodall
3. But even Mr.Goodall couldn't compete with the robbers of the Royal Bank Of Scotland. As they were entering the bank all three of them got stuck in the revoling doors and the bank workers had to help get them out. The robbers politely thanked their helpers and left the bank. A few minutes later they entered the bank again and ordered a teller to give them the money. But the teller thought it was a joke. She and the other workers laughed at the robbers . Then one of the robbers jumped over the counter to show that he was serious – but he fell and and hurt his leg. The bank workers couldn't stop laughing. When the robbers finally left the bank- with no money – they stuck in the revolving doors again.
4. Sports is another wonderful activity to fail in. and there is no better place to do it than at the Olympics. Carlolyn Wood, an American swimmer did a fantastic job at the 1960 Rome Olympics. Carolyn was competing in a race when she suddenly disappeared under the water. After a few minutes she Came she came up again, choking. Her coach jumped into the pool with all his clothes on to save her. The swimmer later explained that she had gotten a mouthful of water and wasn't able to breath. Carolyn broke an Olympic record anyway: she became the first Olympic swimmer to almost drown. Quite an achievement.
