“If You Fail, It Is Not Important. We Have To Try.”

by Scott Edward Walker on July 12th, 2014

Last night, I watched the documentary “Jodorowsky’s Dune” on Google Play, which is the story of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s relentless pursuit to make the greatest movie of all time.  In the end, he failed — just like many entrepreneurs fail.  But what he learned and created in the process was a grand success and indeed an inspiration.  I love his plea at the end of the documentary:  “Have the greatest ambition possible. You want to be immortal? Fight to be immortal.  Do it! . . .  If you fail, it is not important. We have to try.”  Amen.
