What is a good quote from Crushing it!?

"Not worrying about what people think frees you to do things, and doing things allows you to win or learn from your loss—which means you win either way. Hear me now: you are better off being wrong ten times and being right three than you are if you try only three times and always get it right.”

― Gary Vaynerchuk, Crushing it!
