Failure, Fear, and Learning

This week's article from "Freemasonry from the Edge" is about trying and failing vs. not trying and succeeding. Good stuff, and not too heavy.
Some people fear failure of any kind, large or small, whether it be a major business transaction or a game of tiddledywinks. No, I do not suggest we should deliberately try to botch something, but we should accept failure with dignity, learn from it, and become stronger. But to do absolutely nothing, because we are afraid of making a mistake and looking bad, would be tragic.
