“Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.” 

~Denis Waitley

True success can only come from taking action. And taking action will always involve some risk – sometimes a little, sometimes a lot.  The result of taking action might include failure, disappointment, mental or physical pain, monetary loss, and more.  But by not taking risks, you guarantee no victories, no excitement, no pleasure, no financial security, nothing.  

So keep taking risks and taking action.  Yes, sometimes you will fail.  But every time you will learn something that will make that next victory come sooner and stronger.
