Failure is not the opposite of success. You may have been taught otherwise. But, it’s time to unlearn that.
Actually, failure is a part of success. You can’t succeed without failing first and probably failing often. You can’t let the fear of failure hold you back. Even once you do find success, failure can and still will happen.
Don’t just do something because it’s “safe.” You may find yourself hating your job and being miserable all the time. Sure, paying the bills is important. But don’t let fear hold you back from trying something new or pursuing what you love.
You don’t want to be looking back at your life and asking a whole bunch of “What If” questions. It’s better to try and fail at something than to never have tried. Those past failures may allow you to learn something important that one day leads you to a success in something entirely different.
Chase your dreams and do what feels right and don’t fear failure, because it’s going to happen no matter how prepared you are or how good you are at something. Being practical is fine to a point, but true success comes out of taking steps that others just won’t take or haven’t thought of taking.
Live without regret. That’s hard to do, but that’s what makes success so satisfying. Always use failures as stepping stones and don’t ever let them sink you. Get up one more time than you’ve fallen and you’ll get somewhere awesome one day!
