“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.
So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.”
― Neil Gaiman
I like this quote. Not because I'm all about encouraging failure. But because I want 2014 to be a year that we take risks...and soooo often we don't want to step out because we don't want to fail...but hey if that's what's standing in the way then don't let fear of failure stop you from going after your dreams...fail a hundred times if that's what it takes...make mistake upon mistake if that's what will finally cause you to succeed...just don't stop trying. Let 2014 be a year where you keep trying no matter what the result. But hey...we're champions...the winning is in the trying...and you'll find that because we are champions - if we are willing to try, the victory will certainly follow! Happy New Year. x
