The fear of failure; the monster that kills dreams before they are even born. How many of you didn’t dare to even think about doing something because you knew you weren’t good enough?

We restrain ourselves from living we want because we fear that trying and failing would totally destroy us. In fact, not trying at all is our real enemy.

Some of us take the risk, fail once or twice, and decide to give up. But many of the greatest people in history failed so many times that it made them feel like imposters. In spite of that, they didn’t stop trying and eventually achieved their goal.

Dr. Seuss’ first book, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, was rejected 27 times.

Throughout his adult life, Charlie Chaplin failed numerous times, yet he’s still one of the most famous comics ever.
