Nobody remembers failures. In fact my point is success matters. Failure is inconsequential - yet what I hear most people do is not do things because they are afraid of failure.
"People's fear of failure restricts them from doing most of what they can do. I like to say most people are limited by what they think they can do not by what they can do."
