We all fail at some point in life. That doesn’t mean we should regret our decisions. If we don’t believe in ourselves, who would?
We make decisions using limited information. We don’t know the outcome till it has happened. All you can do is your best.
Pulling someone back doesn’t mean you get ahead. You still lose, remaining behind the person.
Be brave but also careful. Because if you’re too brave you ignore to see the costs, and if you’re too careful you fail to see the prize.
Failure is frustrating. That’s why we strive for success.
Run, walk, crawl; but never give up.
You can’t do everything in your lifetime.
But you can accomplish a lot by doing little things every day.
You won’t feel like you have done much in a day, but when you look back you’ll see you have been climbing up all along.
Don’t endure passively. Just endeavour actively.

Quick and easy fix? I wouldn’t count on it as much as on a long term plan.

Reading and understanding your favourite book does give you knowledge about it, but the expertise needed to write such a book only comes with experience.
Experience doesn’t come as you age, it comes through exploration and experimentation.
Humans are much closer to each other biologically than they are different culturally. And yet our differences predict the outcome more often than our unity.
