BE WILLING TO FAIL
One of the key ingredients of creativity and innovation is failure. In order to be creative, you have to be willing to take risks.
Obvious to some and seemingly contradictory to others, success is found by those who are willing to fail. Even as history has seen countless examples of failure being a common prelude to success, it is often overlooked as people tirelessly search for the perfect success formula or tips.
It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all — in which case you fail by default.
This isn’t as much inspiring as it is statistical, the more times you try, the more you will fail and succeed. To avoid failure is to avoid success.
The difference between being willing to fail and unwilling to fail is taking risks. If you are one who is not willing to fail in a particular area of life, you will make sure that you have no opportunities to fail.
The truth is, if you can fail at something for long enough — and learn from your failures — you’ll eventually achieve true, lasting success on a large scale. If you want what no one else has, you must do what no one else does.
Push through. Be consistent. Invest in yourself. The short-term pain you’ll experience is nothing compared to the long-term benefits success will bring you.
