I'm not talking 'life philosophy', more along the lines of waking up 10-20 years in your past knowing what you know today and whispering the lesson in your ear.
For me there's a clear winner. Just FAIL sooner, more often and care less.
To fail you need to START.
- I'd start competing before I was ready.
- I'd start SELLING before I knew what I was doing.
- I'd go bust younger.
- I'd make a fool of myself because of my naivety more often and not care.
I'd hero worship less. (Admire? Yes, but to hero worship is to relegate your own identity to the 'I'm not worthy' category.)
There are NO failures in life, there are RESULTS/outcomes of action and inaction.
Failure represents the gap between a first step and a desired destination. Without a first step there can be no journey.
