If you aren’t willing to fail, you won’t succeed. Period.
Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
I need to give myself permission to try something new, and fail. That’s the key to gaining new skills. If I don’t give myself room to experiment and fail, I’ll never grow. This is closely related to willing to be uncomfortable. If I always choose to do the things I’m comfortable with, I’ll never grow either.
If only we could find a highly skilled individual to endorse this position.
