Never Be Afraid To Try!

The following are some quotes I got about criticism and not being afraid that I feel are worth noting.  They are from people in history, people I personally know, or simply from the collective tome of the anonymous. 
  • “No one ever built a monument to a critic.” – Rush Limbaugh
  • “Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain – and most do.” – Benjamin Franklin
  • “Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing about.” – Benjamin Franklin
  • “It’s not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doers of deeds could have done them better.  The credit belongs to the man who was actually in the arena, whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood, who knows at best the triumph of high achievement and who if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” – Teddy Roosevelt
  • “Our time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Anonymous
  • “It’s hard to wait for something you know might not happen, but it’s harder to give up when you know it’s everything you’ve ever wanted.” – Jeff M.
  • “If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always NO. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.” – Nora Roberts
Never be afraid to try.  Even if you fail, you are still better off than the man who will forever be wondering how things would have turned out if he only dared to make his dream come true by taking a chance. 
Yes, you can fail.  And yes, things could actually be bad when you fail.  However things will only be worse with regret if you don’t even take a shot. 
Anything worth doing is never easy. 
So take a chance and go for your dream! 
Jesus, King of Mercy, I trust in You!
