There’s a tendency for most of us to be scared of not having someone tell us what to do. It can feel safe because ultimately, you never feel entirely responsible for your fate.
Authority is not always harmful. But adherence to authority should never be compulsory, and it should never go unquestioned — whether they’re your preacher, your boss, your teacher or your best friend.
Failure helps us. It’s how we are learning. It is the path to growth. So being comfortable with it allows us to take more calculated risks and see opportunities where others aren’t looking.
