More Failure Quotes Below:
If you think of failure as an accident then accidents are part of nature. We evolve by testing genetic accidents as we adapt to a changing world. Accidents are how we got here.
We are here to desire, to experience and to wonder at our capabilities. We stand still, dreaming of ambitions, fearing failure.
We are starved of the personal achievements that inspire us to come alive. In the real world student loans, force you to settle for underpaying jobs. And that is if you are lucky to graduate college. Financing different lines of credit will become normal and the margin for error incredibly thin. With many responsibilities will then multiply the intolerance for failure. It’s all about paying the rent and keeping up with society. We get stuck watching t.v to pass the time till the next day of work. We read magazines of about the rich, powerful and famous. Sometimes, we follow our heroes and guilty pleasures on social media. Those who dish out some tasty tales. Think of how many success stories are made sweeter by accidents. A dash of error, stirred by perseverance.
You are part of an opportunity, life. Don’t waste it hidden in the fear of failure. Give it another go. Decide your approach. But you can’t fear it. Don’t stay tucked away when there is an entire existence to explore. Earn a few bruises. Dust your self off. And go. Go again. Don’t be afraid of it. It is natural.
