Take Chances, Make Mistakes, That's How You Grow. You Have To Fail In Order To Practice Being Brave

Take Chances, Make Mistakes, That's How You Grow. Pain Nourishes Your Courage. You Have To Fail In Order To Practice Being Brave

Mary Tyler Moore Quote

Mary Tyler Moore quote about being brave enough to take chances and not allowing mistakes from the past jeopardise your hope for the future.

Her understanding of 'what it takes' to be successful speaks volumes about the courage of this remarkable American actress.

Mary Tyler Moore won two Emmys appearing on the Dick Van Dyke Show in the sixties and she followed that up with three more Emmys during the seventies with The Iconic Mary Tyler Moore Show.


Pain Nourishes Your Courage


The show was about a 30 something single mom in the working world and I find it fascinating that this very same single mom in the working world theme has been repeated so many times and it is always a draw for audiences.

Maybe Mary had to take a few risks throughout her career to reach the highly esteemed status that she did achieve, so maybe the underlying message in this quote is a good one.

Her meaning for this quote could have been that pain nourishes your courage and the pain of failure and falling down feeds your determination to keep trying to succeed
