If at first you don't succeed, try, try 47 times again

Maxey never passed a certain test that he did. He never gave up but he was still failing his tests. He started to do better, but he was still not getting the grade to pass. After 46 times he passed the test. He felt so happy that he passed the test that he never did before. He had the perseverance to pass the test.


Maxey had a family. He wanted to be a lawyer all his life, but first he had to take a bar test. He took the bar test and failed. Then after 47 times of failing he passed. He knew he was getting closer to his dream job. As he got closer to his dream job, things got easier for him. Every test was easier and he was eventually able to become a lawyer.
