"Many adults are fearful of failure, while children have to be familiar with it. What is growing up except failing over and over again - at walking, at tying your shoes, at reading, at riding a bike, at doing math, or writing a sentence?
If you’re growing, you’re likely failing. In you’re not failing, you’re likely not growing. Are you still willing to fail?
As time passes, some people become especially fearful of failure. They seek to protect what they’ve accumulated. They lose the hunger and daring of their early days. Comfortable in a cocoon, they experiment less. They try fewer things. They embrace fewer adventures. Adults can come to stake there identity on the success they have attained, while losing the very spirit and character that made success possible in the first place.
The prospect of a new adventure promises a confrontation with our inadequacies and failings. Adventure can throw our comfortable sense of self into doubt. No wonder, then, that too many people only have one or two or zero adventures in their lives. Too often we see people, by the end of their lives, balancing atop an ever narrower set of experiences and teetering like an elephant on a stick.
We can make a different choice. We can choose, at any age, to have adventures and growth and happiness. We can begin again. We can have all of this, as long as we are still willing to fail.” —Eric Greitens, Resilience
