Have no fear

The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make a mistake.

Elbert Hubbard

Constantly fearing to make a mistake will eventually push you into making the biggest mistake of all which is not doing anything. By doing nothing you become nothing and there’s nothing wrong about failing.

You are human, you are not supposed to know anything! Life is about learning and learning means being overwhelmed and then working your way through.

Be not afraid for life consists of mistakes! Go out there and enjoy them. Like I always say: Fail, try again, fail better!

Make mistakes!

The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.
Elbert Hubbard

This is especially true when it comes to human relations. People have so much fear of making the mistakes that they eventually make the biggest mistake which is making nothing at all!

Often when I talk to people who have problems approaching strangers they come up with excuses like “What if they don’t like me?” “My hair looks bad today” blablabla!

Well there are no perfect moments therefore there is always the possibility to make mistakes. But making mistakes is not failing! Not trying is failing and so is making mistakes and not learning from it.

So don’t be shy, don’t be scared, just do it and the reward will be so much more than you can dream of right now, believe me!

Watch out, you are being surpassed!

The world is moving so fast these days that the man who says it can’t be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it.

Elbert Hubbard

Awesome quote! I totally like the idea of someone who is always complaining and seeing negative things about stuff, someone who always points out, why things CAN’T possibly work out, is suddenly surpassed by someone who is just doing the stuff the critical guy was doubting to be possible :)
