I’m not saying throw caution to the wind and risk screwing up your life but if your only reason for not doing something is that you might fail, then so what!? FAIL!
I constantly have to remind myself of this on a regular basis.
Here’s the thing though, failures don’t often come in one giant mistake crashing down on your head. Failure often comes in regrets of the chances we didn’t take, and the opportunities we didn’t stick with.
Most often the biggest regret people face in their lifetime are when they decided not to do something.
Don’t believe me? Here’s a quote from the book Leadership 101 -John C. Maxwell
“100 people over 95 years old were asked one open ended question.
💥”If you could live your life over again, what would you differently?”
Though it was an open ended question, the same 3 answers continued to rise much more than the rest.
▶1. ‘If i could do it over again, i would reflect more.’
▶2. ‘If i could do it over again, i would risk more.’
▶3. ‘If i could do it over again, i would do more things that would live on after i am dead.'”
Really makes you think huh?
It should make you act! lol
