If you fear failing and falling so much, that’s exactly what you need to do. Nothing will teach you more, or lead you to more success than your failures.
“Money” isn’t that important. It’s not even about the money. It’s only about you and your growth.
Save first, spend second.
I haven’t heard anyone ask, “How can I be more successful?” in a long time. At least not in those words specifically.
When you understand the value of your time you learn not to waste it.
It is true that the universe favors the bold and the courageous, but it is also true that reality will catch up and bite you in the ass.
You are too hard on yourself and your work.
Beating ourselves up feels bad, and despite our mental image of a mean drill sergeant being super motivating, mentally shit talking ourselves does nothing to motivate us to change or take action.
Paul McCartney didn’t have time to take lessons. He was on stage and his guitar string BROKE. He didn’t have time to read a book. Or listen to the greats. He had to get up, sit down at the piano, and start playing.
Attitude is everything.
