Failure is NOT trying

How have you failed today?⁠

“You can’t do it”, they said. “You’ll never make it”.⁠

Failure is NOT trying!⁠

Sara Blakely (a.k.a Spanx lady) says:⁠

Don’t tell anyone your idea until you have invested enough of yourself in it that you are not going to turn back. When a person has an idea at that conception moment, it is the most vulnerable–one negative comment could knock you off course…Don’t solicit feedback on your product, idea or your business just for validation purposes. You want to tell the people who can help move your idea forward, but if you’re just looking to your friend, co-worker, husband or wife for validation, be careful. It can stop a lot of multimillion-dollar ideas in their tracks in the beginning.⁠

Honour yourself first. Trust yourself first. Be your best friend. Validate your own ideas by surrounding yourself with people smarter, braver and more daring than you. Then you’ll feel silly for not trying! You’ll feel out of place among those who at first dare and fail, then dare again to succeed! ⁠
