See, a lot of people think that failure is a step backward. No, no, no. Failure is a step forward; a step forward in the right direction. Every time you fail you learn something from it, you gain something from it. You feel less anxiety when you’re doing it again. You want to think that’s a step backward? That’s progress in every sense of the word.
There is no guarantee in life. But there is one guarantee: if you don’t take action there will be no outcome at all. No positive outcome. The outcome will be that you didn’t achieve anything. You didn’t achieve what you wanted.
