Afraid You're Going to Fail?
A thought that's run through my mind a couple of times as I go through the training is .."I wonder if I can really do this?"
Sometimes there's just so much new information that you're brain seems like it's going to burst. It can be overwhelming and at least with me it has led to an occasional doubt and fear of failure.
I don't want to fail ... I want to succeed!
So I've had to remind myself of a quote I ran across a while back that I've put on a sticky note and posted to my computer. It simply says:
"IF YOU'RE AFRAID TO FAIL, YOU'LL FAIL FOREVER"
The truth is - "Failure" is about learning. We can't learn until we learn by our mistakes!
Edison experienced a thousand "failures" in order to discover the light bulb. Babe Ruth had thousands of strike-outs on the road to becoming one of the greatest hitters baseball has ever known.
I guess the lesson to be learned here is --- Be excited to Fail!! It means you are closer to Success!
