I fear the reality of failing – the people I will let down – the kids who won’t come back – the leaders who won’t reach potential – the aftermath that failure can bring.
But the true reality is that fear will cause me to fail in ways that actually hurt people. It will curb creativity. It will stifle communication. It will wound relationships. It will eliminate risk and opportunity.
I need to fail.
I want to fail.
Communicating hope to students.
Expanding my comfort zone.
I don’t want the reality of fear to keep me from failing.
