So I have several magnetics around the house with encouraging quotes. One which I have liked a lot says:
The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one … Elbert Hubbard
I’ve read that quote maybe hundreds of times and found it encouraging but maybe at times also a little bit pushy. Or maybe just an voice inside of me with a critical impatient tone going “hey yeah Wilson when are you going to be less cautious and not be so afraid of making mistakes?”
So now I’d recommend a followup to that quote:
… And if you continue to be afraid … that’s OK … because there are no mistakes.
And so to that critical voice I might encourage rephrasing of a desire to read something more like:
… I would like to be less afraid of … but I am not able to … yet.
