Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? The saying, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again" means to continue working toward a goal in spite of difficulties. Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.

We have all struggled to ace something in our lifes at one point, wehther it was a hard exam, a challenging task at work, or with life in general. In my opinion, I believe that every person needs to try multiple times to reach their goals before they give up. I feel this way for two reasons , which I will expand on in the subsequent paragraphs. To begin with, As most people say life is not easy, and we go through challenges everyday. If every human on this earth gave up on their dreams after any failure, we would have never seen all those inspiring and successful people we all know about that are figures that motivate others to keep going. My personal experience, I must say, has had a significant impact on my viewpoint on this matter. Two semesters ago, I had a very difficult subject that I could not understand. As a result, I failed this class, but I never gave up since I had a long term goal of becoming a proffesor myself. I tried again and again; studied even harder, and seeked help from my friends and teaching assistants. Evetually, I passed and got an A, If I just surrenderd, I would have never reached my goal. Secondly, although it might seem easier to quit doing something your struggling with, than to give it another shot, the sense of achivement afterwards is truly worth it. Drawing from my own experience, Looking at my father and his business at first when he decided to open his own project it was very hard form him, he faced so many challenges that made him almost give up on his dream, but because he made the decision to never give up and overcome all the obsticles, his business became very succssful. This incident made him very proud of himself, that it is something that he talks about all the time. To sum up, it is okay to have failures in your life, what is important is to never despair and try again and again. This is because the rewarding feeling you'll feel afterwards and reaching your goal in life.
