When I was a kid I loved to poke my finger into cake frosting and eat it.
Not gonna lie, I still get tempted.
One evening (think I was around 4 years old), I was in the kitchen and saw on the counter some green frosting. Big ‘ol scoop with my finger and into my mouth it went. Turns out it was wasabi. The aftermath involved crying, choking, and my mom lifting me over the sink to vomit.
One of the best ways to learn, grow, and be successful, is to fail. To experience mistakes. I love the mistakes I’ve made because they have brought me to where I am today. With photography, I have made business mistakes and technical mistakes. When that happens, I do what I can and move forward. It’s a blessing because it is presenting me with the perfect opportunity to learn and do better next time.
Don’t be afraid to fail. There are and will always be things out of your control. Try new things. It’s means you are taking action, learning, and growing.
A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new. -Albert Einstein
