Motivation Monday: How to Become Failure-Proof

What if I told you the courage to begin was all you needed to ensure you wouldn’t fail?

This interesting quote from late-19th century author James Allen, who authored As a Man Thinketh, is certainly food for thought.

They who have conquered doubt and fear have conquered failure. -James Allen

 

But the million-dollar question is: Do you believe him?

Maybe it’s a bit more like Pascal’s Wager, in that acting as though this quote is the gospel truth will certainly help you bear this out. And if this quote isn’t truth, what have you lost, besides some hard drive space? You’ve gained some writing in the process.

Do you agree with James Allen? Have you put this maxim to the test? Share your opinions in the comments.
