Success Requires Failure, So Just Start

Think about the last time you were at the beach, and gazed out to the point where the lake or sea meets the sky. The horizon, off in the distance, seems reachable. But if you jump on a board and start paddling out, the horizon appears just as far off no matter how far you travel. The same is true of the progress we make in life. We move closer to our goals, but each new stage we reach becomes the new normal, and we expand our goals accordingly.
