Dave Bautista
Just getting auditions was rough. But also just learning how to act - when I did my first role, in a film I did which was a favour to a friend, I realised I was really bad at it.

As an actor, the only pressure I have is to just be truthful and to do my best work.
Cress Williams
German Actor
Craig David
I recognise life is like a magnet. Positive and negative are on the opposite sides of the magnet. You can try to cut the negative part off, but it's still there. When you accept both of them, it's like, 'You know what? Don't get too identified with success or too identified with failure - just be cool with them.'
Craig David
English Musician
Craig Bellamy
I can understand failure: I've failed loads of times in my life; it's not a problem. I've never feared it, because it's a part of life.

Cory Booker
I'm going to have setbacks and failures; I'm not going to see change right away all of the time or most of the time. But everybody I've ever respected has failed at one thing or another. I've definitely fallen on my face. But I've also had a comparatively easy life.
Cory Booker
American Politician
Connie Britton
The thing about taking risks is, if it's really a risk, you really can fail. It's only a pretend risk if you really can't fail.

American Actress
Claudia Kim
I got into modeling first, then acting came along pretty soon, and I landed my first role in a Korean drama without education, without any acting experience whatsoever.

My life has been nothing but a failure.

Christopher Timothy
My first role was on Broadway from 1963-64 in Chips With Everything.' It was very well reviewed but not very well attended.

Christie Hefner
In any endeavor, you have to understand your tolerance for risk. What's a failure you can afford?
Christie Hefner
American Businesswoman
Christian de Duve
The cost of our success is the exhaustion of natural resources, leading to energy crises, climate change, pollution, and the destruction of our habitat. If you exhaust natural resources, there will be nothing left for your children. If we continue in the same direction, humankind is headed for some frightful ordeals, if not extinction.
Christian de Duve

Christian Cage
My biggest fear, the only fear that I have is failing. I hate to fail at anything that I do and that's really my only fear in life, to be a failure.

The only person that is going to tell you that you can't do things in life are people who have failed.

Chen Shui-bian
I understand the harsh feelings and sentiments from my opponents and their supporters because I myself have been defeated twice in my political life in the past and I understand very well it is hard to accept your own failure.

Charles Stanley
Fear stifles our thinking and actions. It creates indecisiveness that results in stagnation. I have known talented people who procrastinate indefinitely rather than risk failure. Lost opportunities cause erosion of confidence, and the downward spiral begins.
Charles Stanley

Achieve success in any area of life by identifying the optimum strategies and repeating them until they become habits.

American Businessman
Charles Duhigg
A huge amount of success in life comes from learning as a child how to make good habits. It's good to help kids understand that when they do certain things habitually, they're reinforcing patterns.

Caroline Sunshine
My very first role was the character of Barbara Winslow in the movie 'Marmaduke.' Up until that point, I had only done commercials. I had never done a guest star role or a series, and yet they cast me!

Carol Roth
Many businesses fail because the owner wasn't willing to invest and wasn't educated on the difference between spending money frivolously and investing money into the business for growth, and the risks and rewards of that cash infusion.

Carol Alt
It's not about failure; it's about trying something and risking something for attaining your goal.

I feel like people are like, 'Ooh, French beauty, they don't do anything.' But I think it's more about looking as natural as possible.

I think the first role I ever played was Mr. Bumble in a production of 'Oliver.'

Colin Powell
In other words, don't expect to always be great. Disappointments, failures and setbacks are a normal part of the lifecycle of a unit or a company and what the leader has to do is constantly be up and say 'we have a problem, let's go and get it'.
Colin Powell
American Statesman
Burt Rutan
NASA's myriad failures are in many ways the natural consequence of a catastrophic combination of bureaucracy, monopoly, and a calcifying aversion to the kind of risk necessary for innovation.

Bryce Harper
My dad, he worked rebar, an ironworker. Watching my pops get up every single morning, going into work, working hard - I think that really made me want to work that hard, wanted to make me get up early and go for a run or get a lift in or get some extra hitting in and really try to better myself every day.
Bryce Harper

Brie Larson
I started acting in second grade - my first role was in the Thanksgiving play. I was the Indian chasing the turkey. All the other mom's encouraged my mom to get me into acting after that. Also, when I saw 'The Sound of Music' at Music Circus, I knew I wanted to act.
Brie Larson

Brian Tyree Henry
I've discovered people in my lifetime who are like, 'I always wanted to sing but... ' It's like, 'Well then, did you try?' My thing was always not caring about failure.

Brian Stokes Mitchell
The first role that I played as a musical - I was 14 years old, and I played Birdie in 'Bye Bye Birdie.' That was an awakening of, 'Wow, I'm good at that. People are responding.' And I hardly knew what I was doing back then, but there was something that people were seeing.

Brett Ratner
When you're fearless, you take more risks because you're less conscious of failure or what can go wrong.

Bret Michaels
I believe you must find the things in life that you love, and don't let anybody or anything stop you. There may be lesser successes, but you're never a failure unless you choose not to do something. I don't fail unless I quit. You must believe to receive.
Bret Michaels

Brendan Dooling
Every young male actor dreams of being James Bond in an action movie. And that's their first role. But the truth is, when it comes down to it, that's not relatable.
Brendan Dooling
American Actor
Brad Garlinghouse
To me, if we're not failing a little bit, we're not trying hard enough. I think great cultures encourage risk and are tolerant of failure. If you don't do that, you're going to end up with a culture that is stagnant and not thinking about the next generation of products and experiences.
Brad Garlinghouse
American Businessman
Bob McNair
A quarterback that goes out and performs for you and is a franchise quarterback is more valuable than a player playing another position, but there's a lot more risk there. It's a more difficult position to play, and there are lot more failures.

Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday's success or put its failures behind and start over again. That's the way life is, with a new game every day, and that's the way baseball is.

I believe the reason for my early independence is sport, through which I learnt at an early stage to take care of myself and be disciplined.

I think that what women need to hear is that there is life after failure.

Bernard L. Schwartz
Entrepreneurialism, to me, means being able to fail. And I believe that kind of leadership is not necessary only in business, but it's necessary for running countries, too. You've got to be able to believe in something strongly enough that you want to do it even if there's a risk of failure.
