"It is hard to fail but it is worse to never have tried to succeed."
- Theodore Roosevelt
I spent some time driving today and listening to talk radio. I was listening to Dave Ramsey. Do you know who he is? His thing is good money management in a nutshell. He doesn't believe in debt. Or spending what you don't have. I think he is very smart and I enjoy listening to his money advice. Plus he just sounds like a nice guy. But today, he was talking about something else. He was talking about missing opportunities because of fear.

He said, "There is a pain in failure, but there's a different kind of a pain in never having tried." You were supposed to be something and you never did it. There's a pain that goes with that and I've got to tell you that pain is so much greater than the pain of failure. More people hold back and miss their dreams by that fear and then the pain that goes with that is greater than the fear of failure."
That inspires me. I just had to share. Happy weekend everyone! ;)
