I would personally take a lot more chances in life than I do now if I knew I couldn’t fail. I would be able to confidently pursue any career path or lifestyle I wanted knowing that I would achieve it without a doubt. Unfortunately, that’s not reality. Failure is a part of life that everyone experiences. I’m not saying that one can’t confidently pursue their dreams and achieve them; it’s just they’re going to have to experience some failures along the way in doing so. Or maybe they’ll fail on their dream entirely. That’s what’s so scary about failure. Failures can cause setbacks, take a hit to one’s confidence, etc. It is easier to live a life where you don’t take too many chances because you won’t experience failure as much, but you also won’t grow as a person. The important thing is to learn to accept failure and to learn from it to avoid future mistakes.
