For example, instead of thinking ‘what if they don’t like my designs?’, think ‘what if they love my designs?’

Prompt #3

Your mistakes are steps to becoming better

“Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”
– Samuel Beckett

You can’t have growth without failure; they are inextricably linked. Failure is just a lesson learned. If fear of failing has been holding you back, take a small step today. It’s harder to be stuck where you are than to risk failing.
