Be a Queen

"Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness."
 -Oprah


I saw this quote on Twitter and it screamed blog post. Why shouldn't we think like we are queens? 
We are queens after all -- warrior queens. 


Warrior queens think the best of themselves: they're brave and they're not afraid to fail. If I fail, if my creation of a magazine fails -- so what. Warrior Queens have STILL made a difference on an individual level. By helping one person, we're helping the world. 


Failure is a scary concept. It seems to be the opposite of success. We all want to succeed right? So the opposite of success is the opposite of what we want. Sometimes it's easy to think this: 


If I fail at this, then I have wasted my time and have nothing to show for it.


Let's get away from this negative thought process. Especially because this is not true. AT ALL. It's not a waste of time because there's a lesson in it -- there's someone who's going to see the effort you put into it. Determination. Passion. There's so much more that can be found in failure. 


As Oprah said -- it's just a steppingstone.
