It’s much better to fail than it is to have never tried.
How will you know the answer unless you asked?
How do you know you’re going to be wrong unless you’ve told that you weren’t right?
If you don’t ask, you’ll never learn and, if you never fall, you’ll never learn how to get back up and try again.
Failure is, in a sense, the first step to being successful because you’ve been through a trial and error process. You’ve tried different techniques, manifestos, business plans, types of people in a relationship, hair products, fields of work, etc., and now you know exactly what to avoid, so that you can be a much happier, successful being.
Don’t be afraid to get things wrong, nor should you avoid failure.
I really do have a lot more respect for the person who has tried and got it wrong, over the person who has never tried at all.
On the flip side, prevention is better than cure, but don’t use this as an excuse to be timid.
Be bold, be wise, listen to your conscience and I’m sure you’ll get it right.
