#14 To Fear Failure is to Fear Progress

In Episode #14 of the Infinity Effect podcast, John Sader and Garry Pesochinsky discuss an issue that’s present in every facet of life from business to parenthood: admitting when you made a mistake.

The school system indoctrinates us to perceive mistakes as a bad thing, which has resulted in a widespread stigma against mistakes and the people who make them. In our culture, to make a mistake is to invite ridicule and ostracization.

John and Garry challenge this belief system: you are not your mistakes, and mistakes are a vital step in how we learn. To fear mistakes is to fear progress, and that type of thinking is holding us back.

Topics discussed include: people making mistakes, admitting mistakes, how to get over making a mistake, making mistakes at work, and how to learn from mistakes.
