Dare to fail — Universal Principles

Principle — Dare to fail

Fail – to fall short in what is expected.

Most of us are afraid to fail, we’re terrified by it. Not so much for our own sake, but we don’t want someone else to see us fail. We always want to be seen as perfect. Keep the facade up at all costs. “To err is human,” it is said, but we do not want to be human, we want to be better than that!

Good decisions require bad ones

Quoted from LMI‘s Personal Leadership course. (FTBM)

If you are unwilling to choose and make decisions because you are afraid to fail, you will choose the safe alternative rather than the uncertain. You will thus miss out on the experiences which enable you to make better and better choices. Good decisions are made on basis of the past.

Fear of bad ideas

Seth Godin talks about that you must be prepared to lose in order to win.

Many people are petrified of bad ideas. Ideas that make us look stupid or waste time or money or create some sort of backlash.

The problem is that you can’t have good ideas unless you’re willing to generate a lot of bad ones.
