“What great thing would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?”
~ Robert H. Schuller
The fear of failure is one of the greatest things that hold us back in what we do in our lives. This fear is so powerful that it can stop us in our tracks before we even start. There are innumerable things that have never happened in our world because the fear of failure has prevented us from even trying…we allow this fear to talk us into giving up before we even start…“What’s the point? I will probably fail anyway…why waste the effort?”
Why do we fear failure? Why do we care? We may succeed. A failed attempt is better than no attempt; after all, if you don’t try, then you will certainly not accomplish anything – the same result as a failed attempt, except that it isn’t accompanied by any growth. At least if you try and fail, you will learn something that doesn’t work.
Don’t let the fear of failure keep you from trying. Attempt the great things…after all, you may succeed!
What great thing will you attempt?
