Are you fearful of making mistakes in life? …or perhaps it’s been a while since you’ve made a mistake. If so, could it be because you haven’t taken enough risks in life?
Taking risks is like a numbers game, the more risks you take the more mistakes you will make. When you go out on a limb, chances are you won’t get it right the first time. That’s okay! Life is all about learning along the way.
If you want to grow, learn to take risks. Be bold. Be courageous! It’s okay to fall — it’s not okay to stay down.
Don’t allow others to dictate the risks you take. Along the journey, you will find others who will tell you what you can’t do, but don’t let that phase you. Tune out the voice of the nay-sayers — aspire to prove them wrong.
Be like star trek — Boldly go where no man has gone before!
I’m reminded of the bumblebee. According to 20th century legends, the laws of aerodynamics prove that the bumblebee should be incapable of flight. Studies have shown that it does not have the capacity (in terms of wing size or beats per second) to achieve flight.
The bumblebee is the perfect example of how we should tune out what the nay-sayers say we can’t do. You see, this genius species of bees can’t understand the language of the scientists. They don’t know that the odds aren’t in their favor. Like any other creature in nature, they’ve learned to fly as a natural part of life. They’ve learned to fly in-spite of the quote on quote “handicap” that scientists have placed on this them.
Dare you rise up like the bumblebee and defy the laws that others have placed against you. Rise to new dimensions. Sure you may fall time after time. It may even seem like all odds are against you. But if you make mistakes in life, it doesn’t mean that you’re incompetent, it just means that you’ve put yourself out there. It means that you’ve endeavored to take more risks.
So when you fall don’t stay down, get back up. Brush your shoulders off and keep charging forth toward your victory today!
