“The thing you have to be willing to do, and you have to really be able to embrace it and accept it, and really welcome it into your life with open arms in a wide, wide vision…is failure. Be sure to welcome failure. Always say, “you’re okay with me, failure, come on in.” Because then you have no fear. And if you have no fear, and you believe in yourself, and you only listen to yourself — you are number one.” — Neil Young
