Be very frightened not to try.
If you dwell on what ifs and choose not to do anything, you are not going to get anywhere, and this is guaranteed.
Failure happens not to deter you but to strengthen your resolve. Whenever you do something and venture into the unknown, you may fail, this is true. But who knows – you may also succeed.
Every person who has succeeded has experienced failure. It’s a rite of passage, so to speak. One cannot claim a great victory without a fierce battle. Nobody is destined for success without working hard. You cannot achieve success without knowing how it is to fail. You cannot be somebody without discovering your true potential.
It does not matter how many times you fail. It is irrelevant. What’s important is getting up. Fail once or twice or over a dozen times. It is alright. It is not the end. You always have a chance to redeem yourself and get back up. Learn as many lessons as you can and open your heart and mind to what life teaches you.
You can wonder and wander. You can experiment. You can start over. But you must forbid yourself from not trying. Why? Because when you do, you are selling yourself short and you are not allowing yourself to experience success the best way only you can discover how.
Remember that no matter what you do, you may still fail but it does not mean you are not making progress. You are. The fact that you have made an attempt is a proof of this. You also learn to fail better by learning the lessons each failure brings.
The next time you doubt yourself, know that you may indeed fail, but there is also a bigger chance that you will succeed. And no matter how you look at it, it is worth the risk.
Are you ready to fail better?
