Many people are afraid to fail.
Terrified of flunking a test, getting fired, having their heart broken, or being laughed at.
Loss is painful, yes, it truly can be.
The problem with this way of experiencing life, though, is that it represents fixed thinking. A belief that things can stay the same and a desire to preserve the way things were.
There is an alternative.
You can look up at the stars and appreciate the abundance of space.
You can reflect on the passing of the seasons and accept that change is constant.
You can be curious about life and cultivate a openness to new ideas and experiences.
You can have heroes and role models who remind you that, if you dare to dream big, success is possible.
You can bear with life’s changing tides and be open to new opportunities to learn, contribute and grow.
