I watched the video of Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Peter Dinklage when he delivered the June 1, 2012, Commencement address. This video of Peter who plays Tyrion in the Game of Thrones tv series inspires the hell out of me.
The entire address is great this snippet is my favorite part.
Ever Tried Ever Failed. Fail Again Fail Better.
Don’t you just love the thought of failing better? I never thought of it until this speech. I have heard the phrase fail to learn or learn to fail and I have used it most of my career. Failing better has so much more impact.
Failing better means you are going harder, bigger and crazier than you ever have. You are doing explosive things that challenge you to light up this world. Failing better means you are learning from your failures and correcting on the fly and making smarter decisions.
Most people won’t even try for fear of failure. Without putting yourself out there you can never succeed. You can’t chase your dreams if you are playing it safe. Go for it, fail for it and inspire yourself. Become the person you were destined to be and always thought you would become. Live out your daydreams by failing better.
Peter Dinklage drew a line in the sand and bet on himself. He went for it not giving himself and a backup plan. If you go for it then go for it big. Do what scares you and watch your failures turn into victories.
