F N’ F (Fear Not Friday)


On the discussion of fear — Do you fear failure?

I certainly do.

When I was a kid I didn’t dream much — at all. I didn’t have time to dream. I merely survived. Today, I actually live, makes mistakes, and dream. Dreaming of what might be brings a risk that I might fail. If I stay put and don’t try anything new, I most likely won’t fail. I’ll be stagnate but maybe that’s better than failing?

Is it really better?

What is failing really? Doesn’t it mean that I first had to try? If I tried, is it really a failure?

Failure is the lack of success or the omission of an expected action. Maybe that’s not so bad. Failing certainly means I did try.

Do you fear failing?
