Do you fear failures?

In order to have a lot of ideas every day (often required by my work) I have to get out of a warm nest in a big wind, in a rocky desert, in a forest full of unknown animals. And then you turn on all your creativity as you want to come back to where you know what will be tomorrow, where everyone has their place, where dinner and a fun company are waiting.

But I know the secret: life is everything we are given. There will be nothing more. But if we realize our freedom, then we will have very much – as much as it does not fit into the heart.

When it comes to taking an important step and I am afraid of failure, I say to myself: if I do not try, I will regret much more. Any failure is less misfortune than the last day of life to realize that you were a coward and not even try to follow a dream.

  1. I try to tell myself to live by two words: NO FEAR. While I’m doing that I remind myself of the quote, “Those who are fearless in being bold shall meet their death while those who are fearless in being timid shall not. Heaven hates what it hates. Who knows the reason why?” – Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

    The operative word is “try”.
