Failure is a part of growth and new learning. As soon as you can wrap your mind around the idea that failure, challenge and mistake are all part of the process and that the process doesn’t stop with failure, that it can make things more hopeful and empowering.
Just because things start off hard doesn’t mean they remain difficult forever.
I used to think that driving was hard. Paying attention to all the lights and sounds, watching out for pedestrians, making sure that I was driving straight. All the necessary aspects of safe driving were overwhelming at first. But now, I can drive so easily and without worry. It’s something I’ve gained confidence over time in and now it’s not so daunting a task.
The same goes for public speaking. At first, growing up, I felt shy, scared, mumbled when I spoke and stumbled over my words. Over years and years of practice, I’m now a much more confident speaker, can professionally communicate my opinions and thoughts and people actually listen to my thoughts. BUT, it’s only something that I’ve gotten better at because I have practiced and continued to iterate on.
