Because if we are not failing, it means we are not trying enough
We are not going after seemingly unachievable goals.
We are not exploring uncharted territory.
And by avoiding failure, we stall our growth.
We avoid failure because we want to keep the illusion of invincibility for ourselves and others.
We do it because ego comes in the way.
Ego tells us I’ll take the risk of no growth, but I won’t want to be seen as a rookie who is starting from scratch and who may fail.
Announcing big dreams and accepting the risk that what you do may not work takes courage.
I hope we find that courage and go ahead while knowing that everything we do may not work.
