There is no such thing as failure
I've been trying to live my life by this philosophy lately. I'm guilty of not trying things from fear of failure. But there really is no such thing as failure.
The reality of life is that we will either succeed at something, or we will learn something. We should take these lessons and use them to propel us forward.
We are rarely born being good at something, so all the more reason not to be afraid that we might suck at it until we eventually figure it out.
Don't be afraid of failure. Because it doesnt really exist. Move towards your goals knowing that you'll either succeed or learn something.
