We will all fail at one point or another.
It’s not how you fall that matters most, but how you get back up.
One of the most important things you can do is learn from your failure. If you don’t learn from your mistakes, then they were essentially made for nothing.
Instead of constantly being afraid to fail, you should learn to embrace the failure itself, knowing that it will ultimately lead to being a better freelancer.
