I practiced horse jumping when I was a kid.
One day I told my instructor how bad I felt because I kept on falling off my horse despite years of practice.
…and their answer marked me forever.
It’s not as much about how long you’ve been practicing, as it is about how many times you fell and got back up again.
I learned to welcome failure into my life on that day. I never felt so proud for falling over 100 times. In fact, I was now eager to jump higher!
On that day I realized that you don’t become the best rider by only treading carefully, avoiding the hard jumps or the challenging paths. You don’t become the best by refusing to ride that one scary mare or to try new things.
You become the best by embracing failure and then seeking some more.
How else are you supposed to get better if you don’t challenge yourself?
Are you ready to get back on the horse?
