Of course it is. Who’s going to remember? So what if they remember? What do you have to lose? Even if you lose what do you lose?
The price of success is the risk of failing. It is OK to fail.
I can give you a lot of quotes about failing. Stories about people who failed and became successful later. You will say you believe in it. But you won’t embrace it. You risk your ego being bruised. That’s why you fear failing.
You will say it is OK, you will speak like a hero but you won’t believe it. But it’s OK.
Whether you are successful now or not is immaterial. It’s still OK to fail.
