Have you ever failed? And after the failure, were you able to look beyond the failure and see all the positive results of those failures?
For me, I’ve always been very good at this, being that I was an athlete and I always had to look at failure as a way of winning. And If I looked at it any other way I would continue losing. It’s when you look at failure as a way to win, that you actually start failing to win – and this is what you want!

In the last nine months or so, I’ve learned more things and experienced more life changes than I had pimples during puberty. That’s what following your gut and jumping into risk with both feet does. Why so many life changes? I started my own business – a creative communications company.
In truth, it seemed like a crazy idea. In this economy? Especially when I started to count how many other little creative agencies and studios there are in my city. There’s a lot of them. But, I did it anyway.
Don’t wait until tomorrow. Things are never going to be just right. If you are waiting for that perfect moment, you will be forever waiting. Stop waiting and get started now. Drop everything and get going. It will be a journey, but with each step and each day you will be making progress towards your goal. And if you keep at it, you will grow stronger and stronger until that day when you wake up and you’ve made it.
