You know that thing you’re not doing because you’re afraid you might fail at it?
NEWSFLASH: You are already failing at it!
Having NOT stepped out into the world and started doing that thing you are being called to do (because you risk failing) is itself, by default, a failure.
Don’t kid yourself that you are staying free from failure.
When they nail the lid of your coffin shut, if you haven’t succeeded at the thing yet, you will have failed, no matter if you tried or not.
Whether you try and fail or you fail to try, you are failing just the same.
Why fail by default when you can fail in action?
Isn’t the latter more noble?
More of what you really want anyway?
