“When one tries to master something, it ends in either success or failure. But it is in the attempt itself where you find the true value. Believe in your own power and walk your own path.” ~ Oki
I view this as a valuable lesson to live by. As a person constantly finding new interests in mastering different things, from writing, to drawing, to calligraphy, to science, to mythology, to guitar. Each path that I have walked for each interest, be it successful or a failure, has taught me important facets of who I am as a person.
After all, it is my belief that mistakes are what teach you, as opposed to triumphs.
