Many people refuse to try new things or take a chance because they are afraid they will fail.
If they FAIL, they could suffer embarrassment, or even (gasp) ridicule.
Do you know anyone anywhere, EVER who has not failed at something?
The fact is the only people who never fail are those who never actually DO anything.
If you don’t try, then you cannot FAIL. Of course, if you do not try, you cannot WIN, either.
You will never make good decisions about anything if the only thing you have to go on is your own “fear factor.”
We all have fear factors.
The essential difference between those who DO and those who DO NOT is their willingness to take the chance of failing, but even failure is an opportunity to learn.
