Failure

We are all far too afraid to fail. We are very hesitant to brave the world and give exciting but challenging ideas a shot – that is because we’re afraid what might happen if we failed. But saying that out loud (figuratively speaking), it becomes obvious how restricting this way of thinking is: If we … Continue reading Failure
