The more you fail, the greater the chance that you will ultimately succeed. You can actually fail yourself to success. Because every time you fail, you gain experience. In my case, I crashed my way to the top. For two years I crashed in four out of every five luge runs. But I learned something from every crash. Then, on my third year, all of my luge knowledge miraculously came together, and I hardly ever crashed anymore.
“I am not discouraged, because ever wrong attempt discarded is another step forward.”
– Thomas Edison
