Sometimes our biggest fear and worry is that we will make a mistake. Many of us live in sheer terror and dread that somehow we'll 'blow it' if we aren't careful. And even when we are super-cautious and so careful, at times, we think, "Ah, I've still blown it— even as hard as I've tried not to." Fear of failure or of making mistakes can paralyze us and keep us from trying anything the least bit new or different. Yet we can only grow as we allow ourselves to experiment with life. Buckminster Fuller said, "There are a number of very important irreversibles to be discovered in our universe. One of them is that every time you make an experiment you learn more: quite literally, you cannot learn less." So don't be afraid to make a mistake— how else can we Iearn anything?
