Ever watched a baby try to walk? They struggle to stand.....and fall over. They struggle to take a step.....and fall over. They take 5 steps.....and fall over. They constantly fail in their pursuit of learning to walk yet they don't give up or blame others for their failures. They reflect on what they did, they learn and then they try again. They do this repeatedly until they can walk.
We all want to succeed in our endeavours, to be the best and gain experience but a lot of us, myself included, fear failure and ridicule so we hid behind what is safe and comfortable. We peak out from our safe place at those we admire and hope to be as successful as them someday and convince ourselves that if we stay in our comfort zone long enough it will happen.
Having been that person let me tell you that jack sh*t happens, you just lie to yourself daily to make yourself feel better. The reality is we don't progress in our comfort zone. We convince ourselves that we do so that we can avoid failing but the truth is we must put ourselves out there, take a shot, be prepared to fail and most importantly be able to reflect on the experience so that we can learn, develop and grow.
Keep pushing to improve, be prepared to fall over, dust yourself off, learn and try again. You'll either succeed this time or fail and learn another lesson. Either way you've gained more experience and progressed.
