There’s no mystery, there’s no avoiding it, and no one born has ever, or will ever, be immune. Failing is as certain as sunsets and detours. So why exert energy avoiding the unavoidable? Shift your energy from protecting yourself from failure to squeezing the life out of life.
I expect failures when attempting to do something important. But they aren't really failures if you get up, adjust, and proceed again.
Only a failure when you walk off the playing field... and quit.
