Fear of Failure

“Failure seldom stops you. What stops you is the fear of failure.” Jack Lemmon

How often fear holds us back from trying something new and even more so, from achieving success in something new!  Once we realize that a failed attempt at something new is not only fleeting, unless we give up, it is one step closer to success and certainly nothing to be afraid of.  It is simply part of the process or journey of learning.  Never trying anything new or challenging ourselves to improve or increase our potential and just maintaining the status quo…now that is something to fear!

Congratulations to all of us who took classes this summer and who now are going to put what we learned in those classes into practice with our students.  It is great to be modeling for our students what we preach, ourselves as life-long learners.
