"A life without mistakes is lived without joy."
"We fear mistakes more than anything else. Mistakes bring on ridicule. Mistakes expose the unsure, frail and diffident woman hiding within.
"Can anyone brag of living a 'mistake free' life? Perhaps if they were to spend their days on an armchair by the fireside. A life doing this is half lived, wasted and incomplete.
"Fear of making mistakes holds you back from doing many things. Ultimately too many joys go undiscovered. Regrets smother you and you become even more fearful. It's a vicious cycle.
"Remember that nobody sits above you. Others may know more, but they have also walked the same path before you. To get to where they are standing, you may have to make a mistake or two. So what, why not feel the joy you deserve and go for it?"
