If you want to grow, you can’t avoid failure. You are going to fail. If you are not failing, you are not growing. The problem is that people want to succeed, but they don’t want to fail. They don’t want to make mistakes. They don’t want to take risks. They just want to remain where they are. If you keep doing the same thing, you will keep getting the same results. To face your fears, you must do what works. Don’t do things that are hurting your life. Don’t stick with things that are not working well for you. Stay away. If something is not working, don’t stick with it. let it go. It is okay to fail at something. If you don’t want to fail at something, you will fail at everything. It is okay to fail. If you are not failing, or you haven’t failed in your life, you are playing with yourself.

There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”- Paulo Coelho

There is no such thing as a perfect time. The perfect time to do something great is now. If not now, when are you going to do it?
