Those who don’t try, never look foolish.
This piece of wisdom is certainly true, but will never enable you to achieve your potential.
If you coast through life you’ll live forever in your comfort zone. You won’t take the steps that you need to move into a space of learning and you won’t grow and develop.
When it’s easy, it might feel great. You are able to succeed at things you set your mind to without any effort because they are within your capabilities.
To grow, you must stretch yourself. You need to find moves that are beyond your current capabilities. Dance through them. Celebrate the successes and review your missteps.
If it’s perfect the first time, it wasn’t really a stretch. Don’t let easy get in the way of great, and make the mistakes you need to reach your full potential.
