Where would we be without failure?

Where would we be without failure?

Failure (and the fear of failure) gives you a wonderful opportunity to learn and try again differently.

Failure also means you are moving forward.

Note: There are rare times and places for inaction – it usually involves our primitive instinct for flight or fight – when our physical safety is in question – and we freeze (we don’t move, or act).

Sometimes, we stay frozen – unable to move (no decision and no action).

When we choose not to decide, we still have made a choice.

Here’s the competitive advantage though for taking action:

  • Fear of failing frightens people who care less than you do.
  • Use “caring more” to propel you to action, and possible failure.
