What if I fail?

A question asked by my overly anxious teenager.

Fail as much as you can and fix it

Fail as much as you can and fix it
It’s called skill building. Without failures, you can’t sharpen your skills. Your problem solving muscle will grow. If you are comfortable, you are not growing. If you are frustrated and uncomfortable, it means you are building your problem solving skills and you are growing. Don’t quit. Keep on trying, hone your skills.

Our famous 16th President, Abraham Lincoln, quoted “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”

He means, before you can become great at anything, you have to put in an effort to grow your skills. Each skill you develop will become a foundation for you to build your dream life. More layers of skill you have, the stronger the foundation will be. Strong foundation will hold a large building. You will be ready when an opportunity to build a large building presents itself.

You don’t want to pass on the lifetime opportunity due to a lack of skills foundation. Keep building skills, add to your arsenal and you will be noticed by everyone.
