Don’t trust anyone who hasn’t failed at least once!
I heard this last night and it really struck me. Whenever we get that great idea to try something new and different, the next question is almost always, “What if I fail?” Just know you will always learn more and grow from your own “failures.”
Back in 2004, at age 49, I felt like a total failure. I had just lost my job as an academic librarian and could not find another. So I did the most unlikely thing for me, I started a local matchmaking service. I figured I needed a job AND a date, so why not? I actually made a good go of it for six months or so, but soon learned that throwing parties non-stop was not really me. Besides I inadvertently met a new husband in the process!
Some might call this a failure. One thing I learned was that I needed some outside help choosing my next career. I knew I didn’t want to be a librarian anymore, but what’s next?
