Your actions may very well fall short of the goal. You may pick yourself up and make another attempt, giving the entirety of your focus and energy to it, and fall short again.
Even so, you matter very much. You are unique and beautiful in your very own way and always able to take the next step, to make some kind of a difference, and to have an influence.
If you're even the slightest bit ambitious, it will take many attempts and will demand much of you. Don't punish or disrespect yourself for that.
Just keep going. You have something important and meaningful to do, so keep going until you get it done.
Then set your sights on an even more ambitious goal and quickly begin moving confidently toward it. You do indeed matter, you can always make a difference, and doing so is what will bring the fulfillment you seek.
