Why?

Because I am a self-confessed harsh self-critic and very simply, I don’t like to make mistakes.

My perfectionism is checking out.

The biggest mistake you can make is being afraid to make one.

Think of it like this, a mistake is just the outcome from an activity that doesn’t produce the desired results that we anticipated.

In some situations we can kick ourselves because reflection shows we could have avoided that mistake. Other circumstances are rightly unavoidable and are simply the associated negative outcomes from experimenting and taking a risk.

One of the most common reasons to hold people back is being afraid to act or move toward their dream because of a fear of failure.

Ask yourself: Are you making excuses, procrastinating, or waiting to act on your goals? Perhaps a key part of your fundamental fear is worrying that you'll make a mistake.

There are no mistakes, there are lessons.

Remember that mistakes are proof that you're trying, and that without mistakes you miss the opportunity to learn and grow.

So before you take the next step, remember to enjoy the journey - trials and tribulations included."
