Do not fear failure. Do not let negative experiences- and there are always plenty- get in your way. In your life, many things-especially the biggest heartbreaks-will only make sense as you look back, not as you are experiencing them. Many of what seem at the time to be your biggest setbacks will end up leading to your biggest opportunities, and in ways you can’t predict. So don’t let that voice of doubt-the obnoxious roommate in your head- have the last word. As Montaigne said “There are many terrible things in my life, but most of them never happened.”
