Why do we fear challenging ourselves in new areas of our life? We have dreams, ambitions – things we’d love to see if we can do, see if we’d love them as much as we think we would. Yet we don’t try. We fear failure. But what if we changed our perception?
“Don’t be a quitter”
Ever notice how many virtues there are which are noble to teach a child, yet become self-limiting and self-defeating after we hone them to perfection as adults??
What exactly IS failure? After all, every great success story has a lot of glorious failures that precede it – often failures that are credited and celebrated in hindsight. Yet, they hold us back… so it is not really the ‘failure’ that we fear – for most common things in life, it is really the internal dialog of criticism we fear.
