Know the difference between a failure and a failure.
Hm? A little confused are we?
Let me explain:
A failure is a singular instance, where you took your shot and for whatever reason it didn’t work out.
A failure is an individual who was reluctant to take any shots; content just watching others take theirs.
Now, one could argue that the perspective held by the latter is what ultimately led to them becoming a failure.
If you’re unwilling to accept failure in the short-term, it’s likely you’re increasing your chance of becoming a failure in the long-term.
