You biggest failure amazingly, is not that great thing you did with good intent that ended in a disaster.
No, your biggest failure is the thing you dreamed of contributing but didn’t find the guts to do.
The biggest blank mark on your CV is the road not taken, the project not initiated, the business not started, that idea not implemented.
It is so much easier to fail than it used to be. So much easier to put something into the world and see it not work. You do not need a building or a degree or an advertising budget. You do not need anyone’s permission.
If you want to write, create that blog, it’s free, you do not need anyone’s permission.
If you want to sing or act, record it and post it on YouTube, it’s free, you do not need anyone’s permission.
If want access to the internet, there are WI-FI hot spots with free internet, it’s free, you do not need anyone’s permission.
What an opportunity. Please do not let a hundred years of brain-washing cause you to waste it. The cost of being wrong is dwarfed by the cost of not trying.
You learn to swim by swimming. You learn courage by couraging.
You don’t need validation, validation is for parking.
