Fear of Failure

I finished reading a management tips ebook written by a friend of mine. I thought this quote I picked from the ebook was inspiring:

“Don’t fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have.”

  1. Heh, didn’t even spot that. I read it “unknown”.

    I leave it there. :)

  2. You failed to spell “Unknown” ;-) But at least you don’t fear misspelling or grammar errors otherwise we’d never have this blog!

  3. Yea, but sometimes taking a loan or entering other economical adventures might be scary.

  4. So true.
    Sadly I have a few “entrepreneur” friends that are afraid to give it their best because they fear that if they fail, they won’t be able to say “If I gave it my best it probably would have worked”.
    How sad of a reason.
