The Courage to Make a Mistake

A recent Workplace Mojo blog post got me to thinking about the fearlessness of failure. What if we were to fail. Big time. What if we were to fail so badly, we lost everything, only to begin again? What if we were to take risks that made us look foolish? Who would really care?

Failure is in the eye of the beholder. Risk is nothing more than uncertainty wrapped in opportunity.

If you want to live large, you’ll have to dance on the ledge of things sometimes.

If you want to live small, play it safe and watch from the windowsill.

I don’t know about you, but I’m convinced if we live with courage and truly trust ourselves, great things can come of it. Sure, we may fall, but it is only those who dare to dance that move forward.

The rest doesn’t move at all.
