IF YOU DON’T KEEP LEARNING AND MAKING MISTAKES YOU DON’T TAKE ANY RISKS
Life is an ongoing process of growth, learning and change. If you want to challenge yourself, to optimize your potential, to produce your greatest work - you must keep trying.
If you screw up, get up, move on and try something new or do it in a different way. Boring people always get it right all the time because they don't really do much of anything new. It's easy to critique others and point out their shortcomings, to be a backseat driver or an after the game quarterback.
It takes quite a different perspective and effort to find the good, the best intentions and the beautiful in all.
I'm just saying...but I'm only one voice. I could be wrong, but it wouldn't be the first time and I'm proud to say it. True?
