Your efforts will soon be rewarded by the people who love you. This kind of reward can't be bought, it can only be earned. Enjoy it.
You miss one hundred percent of the shots that you don't take. A fear of failing or getting something wrong will not help you to improve or grow. If you don't try, you may never improve or succeed. Life isn't about being perfect, it's about challenging yourself to grow through trial, error, research and persistence.
Be open to new ideas. Other people bring fresh perspectives with them that could open your eyes to fascinating or inspiring possibilities.
