“People are afraid of trying something new because they are afraid of failing in a new way.” Author Chris Voss-Never Split the Difference & Black Swan
From Pamela’s Desk
Following Chris Voss and learning from his wisdom and knowledge; he shared what keeps people from trying new ideas is that they are fearful of failing in a new way. I responded, “that’s right!” We all think of new ideas of doing things but it’s this fear that keeps us from actually doing it. Chris explained that it isn’t necessary the failing – it the new vision or idea that was so for-out that everyone would view you as stupid – and it is this embarrassment that we cannot live with. So ask yourself “what does that look like” for many times it really isn’t what you perceive in your mind if failure does occur. The unknown is dangerous so the risk are high…but remember so are the rewards…if done and done well! I therefore request you check out Chris Voss – Never Split the Difference or check him out on youtube…for you will be glad you did.
