Each day in December, I'm asking a juicy question to help you plan for a healthy, resilient 2014. The questions are in no particular order--just meant to provoke some thinking and get you moving in fresh directions. You can see previous questions here.
This question asks you to go out on a limb and to accept that big rewards in your life only come when you're willing to risk failure.
We are often kept small because we want to stay in the comfort zone of perfectionism. We see failure as something to avoid, rather than as something embrace as part of the journey.
As you think about your life in 2014, how can you invite in more opportunities to fail? And how can you change your relationship with "failure," so that it becomes a necessary by-product of risk-taking, rather than something to avoid at all costs?
Of course, to fail more, you must also be willing to learn from your failures. This is part of the experimental approach to life where we try things out and learn from what happens as a result. Failure that we don't learn from isn't helpful.
So, where in your life do you need to fail more? How can you make friends with failure and enjoy its rewards?
As always, feel free to share your answers in comments or over on The Bamboo Project Facebook page. I'd love to hear from you!
