My 30 Day Challenge: Day 24

Get over your fear of being "wrong." We are too often afraid to make mistakes or take chances for fear of looking foolish but is the reward not worth it? I use to be very much in my shell about a lot of things, afraid to stick out of the crowed and get myself noticed but I now say throw caution to the wind. Yes you may look like a fool if you do something that doesn't work out but own that, stand up and say "well at least I had the guts to take the chance." Most people are too scared to take that chance and often end up being sad because they never too the shot. You should take 100% of the shots because the worse that could happen is that it doesn't work, but at least you tried! The more you try the more chances you have to succeed, so take every last one you get. The options are endless as long as you have a "can do" attitude and are willing to look a little bit funny sometimes. It's also very healthy to be able to laugh at yourself if you do make a mistake because then no one can turn around and use it against you because you have taken that possibly negative situation and made it a positive one. There is no being wrong, you simply haven't found the right answer yet, but at least your are making the effort to find it.

Positive Affirmation of the Day: "I may make mistakes, but at least I tried."
