“Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience.”
– Paulo Coelho
One thing I learned a few years ago – after a dream didn’t turn out to be what I thought it would – is that there is no such thing as failure. We might have failed in getting what we thought we would out of a situation, but very rarely do we actually fail. It’s more the case where we gain experience – and that way we grow richer and wiser.
Exactly where is the failure in that?
So be brave. Take risks. You’ll gain far more (even if it doesn’t turn out the way you hope) than if you never dared at all.
