“Try and fail…but don’t fail to try.” -Sohaib Uddin Khan & Habil Guya
Keep this in mind whenever you are fearful of failing at anything in life. If you never try anything, how do you know what you are capable of doing in life. When you do try, you will encounter failures along the way, but the beauty is that you can get up from those failures, learn from them, and improve so that you can succeed in anything that you do in life.
I remember when I was presented with the opportunity to invest in stocks in 2003. I knew that I wanted to do it since high school when I did fantasy stock market games and did well.
I was faced with opposition from people because of their fears that I would lose money and that it was not meant for me to be apart of. I could have listened to them, but I probably would be left wondering how good I could have been at the stock market.
I chose to go ahead and try it anyway. I did fail in the start, but I did get better over time through researching and testing different stocks. I will say that because I was willing to try, and because I was willing to go through some failures, I learned how to be a good investor and expanded my horizons by taking advantage of my opportunities to be a good investor in peer-to-peer loans and land.
When you try, you will fail, but you will learn how to do things better. Do not let the fear of failure stop you from trying because you will miss out on seeing all that you can become. Let’s remember that you cannot achieve your goals and dreams by not starting; it can only come through starting, failing, and getting back up to improve so that you can rise to your potential in life.
