Do you struggle with over analysis? Do you agonize over seemingly simple decisions because you are afraid to make the “wrong” choice?
Being able to properly analyze the future possibilities, probabilities, and outcomes of our choices definitely has its advantages; but we must be careful not to let ourselves get so lost in analysis that we continually stall action. For action is the only way to get proper feedback and achieve growth.
Yes, you might fail, you might make a mistake or two. You might not see the results you were hoping for right away – so what?
It’s natural to want to do everything right the first time. It’s natural to always want to know the next step before taking the first. But so often the next step only truly becomes clear once we have taken that first. Trust in yourself; in your capacity to learn, to adjust, to overcome, to change.
Life is about growth, about taking a chance. And failure? Well, failure is so often the greatest teacher. If you’ll let it. Don’t fear it. Learn from it. Use it.
