Every Wednesday I will post a practical wisdom thought or suggestion on marriage, parenting, or life. Fear can paralyze us to not make any attempts to improve our lives and relationships. The nineteenth-century theologian Soren Kierkegaard said, "To dare is to lose one's footing temporarily, to not dare is to lose one's life." So every improvement can only happen through taking a risk, and that can often be somewhat frightening.
One way to overcome fear with risk taking is to view every new attempt as an experiment. The very best thing with a successful experiment is the opportunity to improve an aspect of your life or relationships. On the other hand, the good thing with every experiment is the result can never be failure even if the outcome is negative. Every failed experiment is only temporary and provides feedback that we need to do something different with the next experiment.
TODAY: Try an experiment in order to improve an area of your life or an aspect of a significant relationship. If successful, great! If not, view the result as valuable data or information and try something different with a new experiment.
