Sometimes you have to make a fool of yourself

Recently, a well-intentioned friend told me that I’m making a fool of myself in a certain matter.

Of course she was right, from her point of view.
But as a matter of fact, I don’t care.

For I see this from a different angle.
For I believe if a goal or a person is worth the effort, you shouldn’t hesitate to try your very best and just go for it. Even when it means you might have to make a fool of yourself. Because I’m absolutely convinced one can only win in such situations, no matter what.

Honestly, what do you have to loose? If you fail, you’ll learn a lesson for life and if you succeed, you’ll win the prize, whatever the prize may be.

So, where’s the problem?

Besides; it was the great Charlie Chaplin who once said: “It takes courage to make a fool of yourself.”

All you have to do is to have the courage to try whatever you want to do.
It’s as simple as that.

As far as I’m concerned I do not have a problem at all with making a fool of myself. For in the moment when I get the feeling, that something or someone isn’t worth the effort any longer I can stop it as easily as I’ve once started. From one minute to another – without a warning.

What about you?

  1. i am loving your way of thinking i agree with you 200 percent

  2. I totally agree with you. I’m in a similar predicament at the moment and I’m like you – I don’t care and am therefore prepared for every eventuality, even if it is the lesson learned scenario!
