 “You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over.”

 ~Richard Branson


 Just as the toddler only learns to walk by repeatedly trying, failing, and trying again until he succeeds, we only master life-changing skills and wisdom by trying before we are “ready”. Sure, you can learn the basics and philosophy of most things from Google or books. But to truly learn a skill, or gain wisdom, you must put yourself out there – and likely fail – before you can master it.

 Push beyond your fears and try. When (not if) you stumble, use it as the gift it is along your learning path. The alternative is to do nothing and remain mediocre at best. But that is not you! Make your move today.
