Which is worse: failing, or never trying?
Too many of us rip ourselves and the rest of the world off, by not doing something new because we are afraid to fail. If we are aware of and learn from our mistakes, then why are we so deathly afraid to make them?
Go ahead, say it really loud:
“I make mistakes!”
Everybody does. Everybody will do so again. You probably won’t die from it, so let go of your fear of making a mistake and live, explore, fail, and learn.
The next time you feel like you’ve made a mistake, rather than beating yourself up for not knowing, being or doing enough, simply yell out loud, “I make mistakes!”.
You’ll feel better and so will everyone around you.
“20 years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
Get out of your Head
Our Guest Blogger is my mentor and dear friend Patrick J. Ryan, Chief Waker-Upper at

Get out of your head; Get the emotions out of your decisions and go faster – override your body’s natural rhythm – You can do it…
I often hear people say to others or to themselves, “Get out of your head!” I for one love my head, our minds are a gift, a resource, an amazing source of cognitive genius that we humans have developed that supports us in analyzing, assessing, perceiving not to mention telling a story or two. I’ll keep mine thank you very much.
Here’s another, “Get the emotions out of your “business” decisions. Once again we are pointed towards cutting off an amazing resource of wisdom and intuition that could otherwise be harnessed and used for making better decisions. By getting our emotions out of our business decisions we effectively disconnect ourselves from a great source of wisdom. What if we learned instead how to use this emotional wisdom to make even better decisions?
And finally how often do we power through a day without having a good lunch or taking a relaxing walk in the park – just because we have a stressful list of things to do and a world of pressure that makes it challenging to keep our heads up. Our bodies are always guiding us and we must learn how to include the body’s wisdom in our decision process; this is essential.
Ever have a “gut” feeling about something? This is another example of how the body is communicating with us. The challenge is to learn the body’s language, which is very different then that of our minds or hearts.
Imagine hiring someone to work with you and asking them to only use 30% of their talent or buying a computer and only using a third of its potential or buying a car and only using a third of its power or buying a new home and only using a third of its space. That is what we do every moment that we are not accessing all three of our intelligences to the highest degree possible.
It is interesting to note that even though we humans are gifted with these three sources of intelligence, mind, heart and body, we are not naturally good at accessing them all. We each specialize in one of these three, use another as plan B and marginalize the third by pushing it away.
If you’re curious to know how you can use each of these three intelligences more completely in your daily life, then listening into our *free* 3-part series, “Accessing the three Intelligences: Mind, Body and Heart” will be a valuable use of your time. During each of these 1-hour webinars, Patrick will teach you more about how to access these inherent parts of who you are.
