I think so many people out there are so scared of failing that they won’t even give it a try.
An aspiring artist won’t pick up their brush or submit a piece of work to a gallery because they might not get in, and in that moment they are more worried about what someone else thinks of them than their own creation.
Let me give you a small piece of advice.
You need to fail. You need to know what it feels like to be pushed down, because in that moment you truly find out what you want to do, if someone is passionate enough and this is what they want, pushing them down will only be coiling a spring to then release it higher into the air.
Being afraid of failing is only restricting the life that you can live. It’s leaving doors locked because opening them might be a tough and painful struggle, but I beg of you, that struggle is worth it when you get to the other side.
Put yourself out there, fail until success is the only answer.
