The Best Advice, Ever.

Writer Michelle McLean posted this advice on her blog today:

"The only true failure is not trying at all.  Just go for it."

Why are we always afraid to just go for it and give something a try? 

What are we so afraid of?  Failing?

Because by not trying, we've made sure that we fail.  By not trying, we've defeated ourselves before we even start.

So, what the hell? 

Why not take a chance on yourself and have a chance at success? :)

Fear of failure is a nasty beast and something I'm constantly struggling with when it comes to my writing. I love this quote. I think I'm going to put it over my monitor--a reminder I need daily. Great post! :)
