Try and Try Again!

I know a woman who is brilliant, but is so afraid of failure, her life is stuck in neutral. She has a lifetime of isolation and the mundane when it could be so much more.  Her choice, because she would rather stay the same than fail.

She’s unhappy; complains about her situation, but because of her overwhelming fear of failure, will do nothing to change it!

We learn and advance when we fail; it propels us forward. There is no shame in failure. There is only shame when you don’t learn from it!

If you never try, you will never fail.  But you will never move forward in life.  So you must try!!

    I couldn’t say better, like we say “the one who doesn’t try, will never have anything”

  3. Trying is definitely the key to success, Penny. Even if I do sometimes wonder why when I am sitting checking the proof AGAIN! Smile!

    Excellent! I learned a long time ago that if I don’t try, I have already failed. Great post. 😃
