Don't worry if you make mistakes. Only people who dare, try, and persevere, complete tasks and achieve success. It is so comfortable to be passive, make no effort, and stick to the familiar. However, by doing so, we allow external influences shape your life. According to Remez Sasson, daring, trying new things, and making changes, seem intimidating. It is more comfortable to suffer, complain, and stay in the same place. Why Daring Is Intimidating? You afraid you might make mistakes. You are afraid to look ridiculous. You want to avoid criticism. There is a lack of self-esteem. There is a lack of self-confidence.

If you wish to let the above list intimidate you, and therefore, be unhappy, complain, and stay where you are, this is your choice. However, if you want to live a greater life, you should consider taking a step beyond your fears and start daring. It is not so difficult to do. It is a matter of attitude. It is a matter of changing your mindset. As the saying goes, 'it is all in the mind'. After the first step, it would seem less intimating to dare, even if you make mistakes and bad choices. All people who achieved success, any kind of success, dared to try. They did mistakes, and they failed over and again, but they did not give up. This depends on you. It is advisable to start with minor matters, and as you gain confidence, do bigger things.
