I’ve been asked whether I’ve ever failed before? My first answer was ‘no’, I can’t think of failure anywhere in my life. That bothered me for a few days until I realized why.
I don’t fail because I don’t reach high enough. I reach for goals that I know I’ll achieve. Someone asked me if that is what I wanted to teach Kate. Of course it’s not what I want to teach her. So it’s time for me to change.
So to add more failure to my life, I am going to be reaching for higher, asking for more and preparing for failure and rejection. It’s still scary, but I already notice a little less lack of fear.
The feeling is good. Fear empowers me.
