“Take risks: if you win, you will be happy; if you lose, you will be wise.” Anonymous
“The only real failure is the failure to try.” – from the movie “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.”
We all want to be successful, whether it’s in business, raising kids, or marriage. We often hesitate to do something if we’re not sure it’s the “right” thing to do, because we equate unsuccessful attempts with failure.
When you equate unsuccessful attempts with failure, then you play it safe. You shy way from trying new and different things so as to not fail. The end result is that your life and your options become more constricted and you become less free.
