Getting up again

Fall down seven times. Stand up eight.

Japanese Proverb



Being active

I would rather die of passion than of boredom.

Get going

Better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing flawlessly.

Losing yourself

To dare is to risk losing your footing for a moment. Not to dare is to risk losing yourself.

Soren Kierkegaard


Take a chance

My father could have been a great comedian but he didn’t believe that that was possible for him, and so he made a conservative choice. Instead, he got a safe job as an accountant and when I was 12 years old he was let go from that safe job, and out family had to do whatever we could to survive.

I learned many great lessons from my father. Not the least of which was that: You can fail at what you don’t want. So you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.

Jim Carrey


Take chances

Even when you have doubts, take that step. Take chances. Mistakes are never a failure—they can be turned into wisdom.

Cat Cora


Get nervous!

Anything that gets your blood racing is probably worth doing.

Hunter S. Thompson
