  • Experience shapes learning
  • Too much success can lead into blind spots
  • Be a kid! You need to be one to learn. Like riding a bike, trying to eat and understand what’s bad or good!
  • Make a plan B (usually my plan B is that plan A must work)
  • I belieave that failure is what brought us here. Success is important, sure, but imagine if there weren&apos;t mistakes, big ones, throught out history ... the dinoussaurs might&apos;ve existed...
  • ALERT: I do no belieave on the eureka momment, but on the fail momment, where failure happens, by mistake or on purpose. The problem is that people aren&apos;t keen to failure, to mistakes, they think is a bad thing, so they try real hard not to fail, with leads to insecurity and things not happenning.
  • Move forward
  • You should laugh at your own failures
  • Virgin Mary Assumption
  • Failure the mother of all success
