Success is not final, failure is not fatal:
it is the courage to continue that counts.
~ Winston Churchill
We make a mistake.
And then relive it again and again, feeling worse after every replay.
We write that email.
And then reread it 378 times before hitting send.
We so wanna make our dream happen.
And then we lose ourselves in worst case scenarios of what could go wrong.
And do nothing.
Here’s 6 sizzling liberating views
on screwing up, dropping the ball, making a mistake.
And doing our thing nonetheless.
1) There you are – you made a mistake. Find out here why that’s actually a good thing.
2) Being harsh on yourself for having screwed up? Read this to put things in perspective.
3) Really wanna do something? Yet finding yourself procrastinating and afraid to step up and step out? Maybe this is what’s going on.
4) They make their dreams happen. And we just keep dreaming – feeling more deflated each time we realize we haven’t even truly started yet. Find out here why they create their best work. And we don’t.
5) They are always so confident, calm and in control. (And we aren’t, so that must mean we haven’t got what it takes.) Bust those disempowering myths right here.
6) What if it would work? Check out this gentle reminder that often gets buried under those worst case worries.
It is impossible to live without failing at something,
unless you live so cautiously that you might has well not have lived at all,
in which case you have failed by default.
~ J.K. Rowling
