"One must be a god to be able to tell successes from failures without making a mistake."
~ Anton Chekhov ~
Let's not be afraid to fail. As a general rule, we let fear stop us in our tracks, block us from getting started, cripple us, shrink us, and keep us down low. But what if we didn't? What if we tried everything that spoke to us just for the adventure of it? What if we were willing to risk even a little? What if we were willing to risk a lot?
In failure is blessing so that's never quite the end of the game; and looking at it that way, maybe there is really no such thing as failure at all, and what we think of as failure is just a lesson we learn along the path.
I have the courage to risk failure knowing that even in loss there is gain.
