“To make no mistakes is not in the power of man; but from their errors and mistakes the wise and good learn wisdom for the future.”- Plutarch, Greek-Roman biographer

Whatever you want to achieve in your life, go for it. Do not let the fear of failure stop you from pursuing your purpose. The reason we are here is to pursue our purposes. If you are not pursuing your purpose, what are you pursuing?

No matter what you want to achieve in your life, it is not going to be perfect before you start. We are not perfect. We live in an imperfect world. So, our decisions are not going to be perfect. Remember, there is power in imperfection. Publilius Syrus said, “No one knows what he can do until he tries.”

To achieve greatness in you life, you must follow your purpose, not your passion. Your purpose is who you are. It is bigger than your passion. Your purpose in life is your driver, meaning it controls all your decisions. Your purpose doesn’t change. It stays the same.

On the other hand, your passion changes with time. If you want to be successful, follow your driver- purpose.
