Stop Worrying About Failing



If you’re going to do “out on a limb” you might as well at least enjoy the view!

Just a short thought for a Saturday…

I’m so tired of hearing photographers talk about failing. However, it’s a concept I completely understand. When I was trying to decide about leaving Rangefinder/WPPI, exactly five years ago today, I remember Sheila, saying to me, “So what are you afraid of?”  My answer couldn’t have been shorter or filled with more fear, “Failing!”

For those of you still holding back and afraid to let passion for the craft push you into a new chapter of your life, I found this quote from the legendary Mark Cuban.
“It doesn’t matter how many times you fail. It doesn’t matter how many times you almost get it right.
No one is going to know or care about your failures, and neither should you.
All you have to do is learn from them and those around you because…
All that matters in business is that you get it right once. Then everyone can tell you how lucky you are.”
Matthew Jordan Smith says it all with just one closing tag line on everything he writes:  Always Dream Big!

Wishing everybody a wonderful weekend, filled with BIG DREAMS!
