Anything worth doing, is worth doing badly. No one’s born an expert, master, or with great talent. Everybody starts as a n00b. But if it’s worth doing well someday — start today, f*ck it up, do it badly… Just start. Just try. It’s okay to fail. Fail miserably. Fail spectacularly. Mess it up, screw it up, be a loser at it.
That’s okay. Get that huge flaming pile of failure done, so you’ll discover you did in fact NOT die, and life goes on, and there’s another chance to try again tomorrow. 🙂 And maybe next time, you won’t blunder quite so hard.
And maybe the time after that, you might even be passably mediocre.
And one day… if you keep going… that’s when you’ll be a star.

Failing is how we learn and grow. Mistakes are part of the process. So fail, blunder, screw up, and fall short with pride. It means you’re going somewhere new and worthwhile. It means you’re growing into a new, better, wiser, stronger, more talented individual.
