"Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it's not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won't. it's whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere."
- Barack Obama

I will admit that I have let past failures and even fear of failure lead into inaction. How many people are victims of this and when do you stop letting fear control your actions?

Our environment has to continually let us know that it's okay to fail. That we can bounce back. Our community often sees failure as the end all and don't even see the point in trying. We're so used to people telling us how hard things are...with few offering another side to the story.
