I read a lot of articles on failure, how it’s good to fail, you learn from failing, all that stuff and I get it. Failure is how we grow, how we learn about ourselves.

There is one thing I know for certain about failure.

I can’t fail.

When I fail, people starve, become homeless, go bankrupt, die. America does not reward failure, she punishes it. Swiftly, with white-hot cruelty.

Quit being cavalier about failure. For many of us, it’s not an option.

Save your comments for others who can afford to fail. Don’t need them here.
