Beliefs and actions. Do yours match?

The disappointment of not trying is often worse than not succeeding.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Much internal conflict arises when we feel we are or should be a certain way but don’t practice it in our everyday life. Our beliefs and actions are out of sync. What is worse, the disappointment of not trying or the disappointment of not succeeding? The shear act of trying something new yields its own success.
