I’ve Learned: Mistakes are sometimes the best memories. We’re born, we die, and in between we make a lot of mistakes, and some are too much fun to only make once. You cannot always wait for the perfect time, sometimes you must dare to jump.
Don’t fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have and should have. Don’t be afraid to go after what you want to do, and what you want to be. But don’t be afraid to be willing to pay the price. The times in life that seem to be the worst, usually turn out for the best.
Research suggests that it can take ten years of experimenting with a skill and making mistakes to become truly good at it. This is true for everyone from the composer Mozart to the basketball player Kobe Bryant. Go easy on yourself if at first you don’t succeed, because that’s normal. It takes a lot of effort over a long period of time to achieve greatness at something.
