You might. Actually you will.
Success comes on the heel of failure.
Without failure, we don’t learn as much. We don’t know and understand as much. We can’t appreciate as much.
I love the story of the prospector out West years ago, who dug and dug and dug, looking for gold. He was so sure it was nearby. No gold.
Finally, after much digging, he gave up.
A couple of his cohorts decided to keep digging, keep moving on. Within days, they STRUCK GOLD!
Success is on the other side of fear.
“Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy. Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Do the thing you fear to do and keep on doing it. That is the quickest and surest way ever yet discovered to conquer fear.” ~ Dale Carnegie
“More dreams die due to doubt, fear and excuses, than to actually failing.”
~ Brian Chewning
To your success!
