Try & Fail

Updated: Mar 4, 2022


Fear of failure is one of the most restricting phobias we can have. As children we were taught that failing grades were worse than bad behavior. As adults, we have all heard the saying,


“Failure is not an option.” 


I disagree! Failure is a very real option and an underestimated one. Being afraid of failure limits our capacity to take risks, try new things and learn from our mistakes. 


Here’s a secret. There are two kinds of failure. There is the failure that takes place when you try something new and don’t quite get it right; or you take a risk to achieve great things and it doesn’t work out the first time.


The second kind of failure takes place when you don’t try, don’t learn, don’t aspire, don’t work, don’t take risks and, don’t live.  When you reflect back on your life and have nothing to show for it.


People learn from the first kind of failure. People can’t learn from the second kind. People move on to succeed after the first kind of failure. There’s no chance of that from the second.


Which one will you choose?
