Such a big question, if you really ponder it. We all know that failure is how we grow, how we test ourselves and become stronger, but knowing how necessary failing is doesn’t make it any less intimidating. No one likes knowing they’ve been unsuccessful – it’s unattractive, feels ridiculously inefficient and throws up mental barriers like nobody’s business. Against such foes, “You need failure to grow!” feels like a really rusty sword.
It takes some time, to reach a point where you can ask this question and allow yourself the time and mental space to actually answer it. At first it feels like a cheap attempt to bolster dying dreams, at least until you reach the actionable point – the moment when you transition from mere pondering into the leap.
In the end, this question is really about two things: conquering fear and stripping away the procrastination. So ask yourself what you would do if failure were not even a possibility? Then find the right cliff to leap off of.
