Sometimes you have to be cracked open to get to the good stuff.
We walk around in layers and masks to protect ourselves, but really we’re just keeping our gifts from the world.
It takes a certain amount of nerve to put yourself or and your work out there. Nerve you might not even realize you have because of a healthy sense of naivete. But that’s what new experiences are—doing something with enthusiasm, but risking failure in the process.
Failure is natural, it’s nature. But the question is where does failure end and success begin? They often start at the same breaking point.
One day you’ve failed, the next day you choose to try again. To me, that’s what success is—no matter how many times you fall, you keep getting back up. Even if it hurts.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
