If you knew failure wouldn't happen
What would happen if you KNEW you couldn't fail?
Better yet how would you approach the jump if you knew falling wasn't going to happen?
So many times in life I see people want a guarantee with their investment. They want to know they're going to get a return while they're halfway in everything in their life.
My friend, something that I adopted early in my web development career was "Fail early, fail often... ", then throughout my years I added "Fail fast, fail forward".
A lot of people might think that's a lot of "failures" in that one phrase... but what they don't know is that if you don't fail you won't succeed. There's no one that has succeeded in the history of mankind that didn't have a graveyard of failures around them.
Those failures are what will help you throughout your journey to success. In fact, failures are the stepping stones to success, they're the path you must walk and go through to get where you want to go in life.
So don't fear failure. Rather do what most won't, embrace it and understand it's just the way.
It's your path.
Jumping is scary, falling is scary, but I promise when you realize the jump helped you fly, you'll be glad you rode the wings of failure to wherever your path to success takes you.
So if you knew failure wouldn't happen... success couldn't happen.
