“Failure” Is An Option
by Cheval John
What is stopping you from fulfilling your dreams?
Is it fear of the unknown?
Is it fear of failure?
Or is it the fear of people making fun of you after you fail?
Whatever it is, don’t let it stop you.
Dane Maxwell, founder of “The Foundation,” wrote a little post about failure.
He illustrates that it is o.k. to fail because it is a sign that you are making progress.
He used an example of how parents celebrates when their infant falls down when they try to walk for the first time instead of condemning him/her because they see that they are aiming for the impossible.
That alone encourages that infant to keep trying until he/she succeeds.
He can attest to that because he experienced plenty of failures before he became successful in building software products that have made him a millionare.
So whatever it is that you been itching to do, do it.
Whether it is learning how to play that guitar that you been craving to play or filming that first movie that you always want to film.
If it doesn’t turn out well the first time, keep on trying because in the end, it will turn out the way you want it.
And if someone says that you suck, celebrate!
Because at the end of the day, you did something that they didn’t have the guts to do themselves.
