Why are we afraid to fail? How many times have you said or heard someone say, "What if I mess up" or "What if I get it wrong"? We seem to be so scared to make mistakes. I have made tons of mistakes and learn from them all. Half of my mistakes have made me who I am today. We cannot be afraid to fail. Failure is one of the key ingredients to wisdom. If you never mess up, you will never learn anything.
