Success is defined by being able to fail and learn. Don't let your failures knock you down. Instead use them to create your story.

... to ask questions and look to others for references. However, remember to listen to your gut as you know your "tribe" better than anyone else. Have the s e l f c o n f i d e n c e to believe in yourself too.
