“The Only Man who never makes mistakes is the man who never does anything.”
– Theodore Roosevelt
How many times have you gone to do something new and way out of your comfort zone and then decided to not do it at all?
You have kept yourself safe!
Keeping yourself small was the preferred choice!
Avoiding judgement and criticism was easier!
So many people choose to not do the things they really want to do because they are afraid of what others might think. Afraid of making a mistake. Not wanting to have the limelight on them.
Allow yourself the moment to shine and succeed and also allow yourself to make mistakes.
Making mistakes shows you are human and it feels good to try. The growth you experienced in that journey was huge and it has made you the person you are today. Without growth, nothing will change in your life.
I have had many businesses from Jumping Castle Hire, MYOB Consulting, Author, Arborist Business, Kids Characters, and Life Coach. All these businesses came about from a desire within me to just go for it.
Where does your validation come from?
My validation comes from me and I don’t rely on others to make me feel good. I learned this through books, coaching and self-discovery
I have made mistakes, in fact, many of them. People have looked me in the eyes and said, “Don’t expect that to go anywhere!”.
Wow!!! Wasn’t that a crushing blow?
What it made me realise though was that I would rather try and fail and make mistakes, than always wonder if it could have been. The journey I endured and the growth and learning I was able to achieve were huge. I got to learn about industries I had never worked in before. I was able to learn different skills and make decisions that really made a difference.
What do you do in your life?
Go on, be brave, and have no regrets when you look back on your life. Say you did what you really wanted to do and weren’t influenced by the people who want to keep you small.
