Just try...sounds easy, yet why does the phrase scare us. Since we were little we have been told to try things we don't like....for me it was vegetables. As adults we are told to try things to get out of our comfort zone or think outside of the box.
So what is the deal with people being resistant to trying new things. The bottom line is this. We fail to try because we are scared to fail. Hey I am right there with ya...I fear failure...we all do. In my new position especially...things can go wrong...a lot of them...real quick...however failure is not an option.
A lot of people seem to have this motto...if at first you don't succeed, stop right there. Setbacks or failures don't have to make you more afraid. They can be the light that motivates you to change the way you think about failure. So good luck...go for it and try.
