“Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.”
–Robert F. Kennedy
As we mature in life, all the “wisdom” we’ve gained can turn around on us and actually impede our growth. We can just stop trying certain things, new ideas, “risky” ventures.
Yoda has been misinterpreted in saying “Do or do not. There is no try”. Trying is not bad…because taking action at least gives us something to stand on, to learn by, and to move forward from in a particular direction.
Trying, taking a shot, going for it, diving in the deep end…they are all a form of DOing.
The point is, we have to start somewhere.
It’s just that to take the shot and go for it, we have to be willing to not know how it’s going to turn out.
“Wisdom” tells us to know ahead of time.
Where can we give ourselves the courage to step beyond our wisdom today and take an action anyhow?
Got action anyhow?
“It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.”
