“Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards.” -Vernon Law
Mistakes are okay; they’re the stepping stones of progress.
If you’re not failing from time to time, you’re not trying hard enough and you’re not learning.
Take risks, stumble, fall, and then get up and try again.
Appreciate that you are pushing yourself, learning, growing and improving.
Significant achievements are almost invariably realized at the end of a long road of failures.
One of the ‘mistakes’ you fear might just be the link to your greatest achievement yet.
