“You did not fail. That is not failure”
Because if you did not try, you are coward – but you tried and that is different.
You put your foot forward and you hoped for the best.
That is not failure – that is courage.
Courage is facing what might be embarrassing or worse what might you uncover.
And you uncovered what was unpleasant, what was unexpected.
Now you know.
Now you know where to go – what needs to be done.
Now go ahead and start doing things you need to do.
Start re-learning and refining your craft.
Because in the end winning is doing something inspite of fear.
