Have you ever put down something before even giving it a chance? All because of negative past experiences, perhaps? Well, that’s human nature. It’s a defense mechanism that we often use to protect ourselves from emotional or psychological hurt. Unfortunately, ascribing to such an ideology as a framework can often limit our opportunities to explore new experiences and cause us not to stretch our creative capacities. In other words, the doubt we impose upon ourselves can cause us to miss out on any personal growth needed to live more fulfilling lives. Just because, the possibility may or may not exist, is no excuse not to make an informed decision and try a new challenge or tackle a new project. The possibility of failure shouldn’t hinder our attempts to overcome but should instead encourage deeper introspection, further innovation and encourage more problem solving capabilities.
