You start to sweat across your forehead and you're like 'Oh my God, I can't believe this is happening. The whole entire world is watching.' But have you ever noticed when you think you failed, it's the ego in your mind that tells you It's so bad and everyone is looking at you. And none of it is true.

Life is a rollercoaster. There's valleys and peaks. When you hit that valley, if you can't deal, then you won't make it. So switch the word failure for lesson. All successful corporations do that. It's called R&D. So, you don't have failures. You have research and development. You just have to change your perspective.

There's no such as thing as failure.
