Sometimes we're too afraid to fail because of the feedback we'll get from our peers or even complete strangers. We're afraid that it just won't work for us and they just got lucky.
You NEED to fail because that's how you'll learn. If you have a bunch of success and very minimal failures you won't last because the failures you face will steer you away from taking risks.
I believe not failing at all is far more worse than failing BACKWARDS. Why? Because if you're avoiding failure so that every project, speaking engagement, social media posts, are all perfect you'll never release it or if you do, you would have wasted all that time from not making money or building brand awareness.
It took me FOREVER to start making money because all of my social media projects just HAD to be perfect. DO NOT be a perfectionist. Tweak as you go. You need feedback, negative feedback is still good feedback (to a certain extent).
I went broke and literally living in my car working at dunkin donuts because I was scared of releasing my projects to the world. Bills started piling up and my mom ended kicking me out because I wasn't paying them on time. One day I woke up to my sunroof being open and raining dripping on me. I thought how did I end up here? Why is this happening to me? Oh yeah that's right, I was afraid to launch my business.
Now I'm doing 4 figure days after pursuing failure!
Don't be afraid of it. You need it. It's healthy for you trust me!
