In my last blog post, I began the discussion of “fear of failing” and related it to the fear that many people have of dreaming about the possibilities.
Most of us grew up hearing our parents repeat the adage, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” Then, at some point in life, the fear of failing became more powerful than the fear of not trying.
There are many adages that having become part of mainstream thinking. They can form the basis of our own outlook on life. Personally, I like to test the “givens” of life so when someone recently stated “Well, seeing is believing” my brain sirens went off. What is the basis for this adage and are they correct?
