I'm Learning.

Bald Eagle from FirstPeople.us

"I have heard that an eagle misses 70 percent of its strikes. Why should I expect to do better? And when he misses, does he scold himself, I wonder, for failing at the task?"

-Sophy  Burnham  in Trusting Yourself by MJ Ryan.

This week, I'm hoping to take the next step in my writing career. But in order to do that, I must risk:

  • making a mistake,
  • being rejected,
  • being humiliated, or
  • simply not being good enough.

I can only take the step if I am willing to fail at least 70 percent of the time.? If an eagle tolerates missing 70 percent of the time, I suppose I can too.

How about you? What do you risk this week?  How will you overcome your failures on the way toward success?

Happy Monday!
