We say to ourselves, ‘I’d do XYZ, but what if I mess it up.?’ ‘What if I fall on my face?’ Those are darn good questions. They are things that should be considered before taking a risk, but I think we should rephrase the questions.
The bible, my favorite book, says that a just/righteous man falls seven times, but that he gets back up.
So what, then if we asked instead, ‘if I fall, how do I get back up?’ Or, if I fall how do I do so gracefully.
i believe failing is a part of life, but so is dusting yourself off and trying again. I believe that you don’t ultimately fail until stop trying. I believe that each failed attempt gets you a step closer to your goal. So let’s keep shooting for the moon. So what if we miss by a mile or two? Would it be so bad to hit a cloud?
Just a thought.
