We’ve all heard this argument or some variation of it before. We all realize that you can’t succeed without trying. How could you? You’ve got to at least give your dreams or challenges a chance; otherwise, you’ll never know what you can accomplish.
There is honor in trying. This we all know. But, what we don’t usually speak of is the dishonor or shame of not trying. You may feel these negative emotions when you lose or fail. But, that is not how it should be. Instead, the real shame or embarrassment should come when you do nothing at all because you are scared. So, be brave and go for it!
