Motivational Monday - The Courage to Succeed

Before we experience success, we must face the courage to fail. The biggest mistake we make in business (and in life), is not taking action because of our fear of making a mistake. 


We fear mistakes and failure more than just about anything in life. In fact, our fear of failure can sometimes lead to a form of paralysis. We are so fearful that failure is in our future, we won’t even take necessary steps to try something new. 


The courage to succeed


There are really only two mistakes we should fear - not starting and not finishing. Don’t allow fear of starting a difficult journey force you to give up before you’ve mustered up the courage to at least start. 


Remember - as Zig Ziglar said, “Success doesn't define you, and neither does failure.

Happy Monday!

Morning Debe.

I have never been one of those who won't start something for fear of failure.  Goodness knows I've failed time and time again

I totally agree. A fear of failure (and of success) can keep people in a never-ending state of limbo.

Debe one sure way to fail, is to be paralyzed by the fear of failing.  Inaction never produces success.

Thank you for sharing - I wasn't familiar with the Winston Churchill quote,

"Success is not final, Failure is not Fatal.   It is the Courage to Continue that Counts."      I retyped that to help embed it in my own mind....
