What if we viewed failure as a legitimate possibility? What if we viewed projects as experiments and mistakes as iterations? If you enjoy this video, please subscribe at bit.ly/spencervideos

Transcript: So, I have this sticky note by my computer and it’s the same note that I have taped onto my journal and pinned to the cork board in my office. It reads, “This could fail.” This could fail. This could fail. I know it sounds negative and maybe even pessimistic. But, actually, it’s the opposite.
For me, “this could fail” is a reminder that every single creative act is an experiment.

It might work. It might fail.

But if it fails, it doesn’t make me a failure as an artist or a writer or a teacher.

Because every failure is another step closer to success.

But it’s more than simply a do-over card.

It’s also a clarion call to take creative risks. It’s a reminder to write blog posts even when I’m not sure what my audience will think. It’s a reminder to sketch these videos even when I don’t feel like a “real” artist. It’s a reminder to keep working on a novel, even when I’m afraid it won’t turn out right.

Sure, I could take the safe route. But I’d rather take a plunge into the creative unknown. I’d rather do things that are challenging.

Because ultimately that’s where the creative life is found.

Oh so many times we have the notion that we must think positively about our goals, dreams, and ambitions. When in actuality it could fail... We don't or should I say I don't want to think about that. You are right when it comes to the creative mindset that one must have. It could fail. Thanks for the reality check and you are right. All I can do is try, try and try again until it doesn't fail anymore.
