I love this book: TWYLA THARP The Creative Habit!
There's so many quotable phrases here to but I wanted to share paragraph that spoke to me the most.
She lists 5 types of failures, explaining why they are necessary to experience and to ultimately overcome. Here is just a small excerpt on the type of failure that I can relate to most...
"The worst is failure of nerve. You have everything going for you except the guts to support your idea and explore the concept fully. The corrosive thought that you will look foolish holds you back from telling the truth. I wish I had a cure for this. All I have is the certainty of experience that looking foolish is good for you. It nourishes the spirit. You appreciate this more and more over the years as the need to not look foolish fades with youth." Twyla Tharp
