I have no concept of failure

“I have no concept of failure. I never have. A 4-year-old Meghan would have told you the same thing I tell you today, ‘I am going to be an actress.’ Not an ounce of uncertainty to my voice. No ‘possibly’ or ‘if’ or a lukewarm ‘maybe.’ The word ‘if’ is toxic. I never let it slip through my tounge because I set my own limitations and if I tell myself ‘if’ then I’m succumbing to the possibility that I don’t have what it takes. That I am doubting my very self. But we’re taught on knees of kindergarden teachers that the sky wasn’t the limit for Jack and the Bean stock, so why should it be mine? – Meghan Rienks
