When You Fail
At some time, you might come to think that you will never be able to reach your most ambitious goals, and that perhaps you were silly to even think it might be a possibility in the first place. That sentiment is essentially self-doubt, and if you experience it, it is really a healthy indicator that you are thinking in the right way. If you are dreaming big dreams, you are certain to have doubts about your own ability to succeed. All successful people have experienced self-doubt at some time in their journey to success.
Filled with self-doubt, many people are prepared to give up. They justify their decision by reasoning that there is nothing wrong with living a quiet life. The sad thing is that, in making that decision, they also are sacrificing their one opportunity to make a real difference in this world. But, at least, they don’t have to worry about the effort of trying and therefore, never have to face the prospect of failure. As the saying goes, ‘show me a person who has never failed and I will show you someone who has never tried!’
