Aim big. Give yourself the chance to fail — and then give yourself a chance to build steps from the corpses of your failure so you may climb higher every time.
– Chuck Wendig
I have started and stopped writing this and other blogs a few times over the years. As such, I’ve made many promises to myself that each time would “be different.”
So after all of those apparent failures, it can be hard to keep going. Hard to believe in yourself or that it can turn out any other way…
But that isn’t to say I haven’t learned something each time I’ve tried. In fact, I can look back and see tangible growth that has blossomed out of each “failure.” Life skills and lessons that I wouldn’t have gained otherwise.
And because I’ve put in so much hard work in the past, each time gets a little easier. Each time I have a little more confidence in myself because I can see my previous accomplishments (however few and far-between) and be reminded that I can do anything I set my mind to.
