Trust in Experience

Experience makes more timid men than it does wise ones. ~ Josh Billings

A young child will not go near a stove after they have been burned.  Even if you try to show them how to be near the stove safely.  They trust their experience more than a parent, thus, making them more timid and unwilling to try again.  As you become older you tend to become more risk adverse than when you where younger.  This probably explains why people such as founders of Dell, Facebook and Google were young when they started their companies.  They didn't yet know they could fail.  You will never be a strong leader if you shy away from experiences.  Once you become a leader, you must encourage those that follow you, to be willing to touch the stove again.

1. Close your eyes
2. Breathe
3. Empty your mind
4. As thoughts come in, acknowledge and whisk them away
5. Focus on your breathing
6. Think about the affirmation:

"I will trust in my experience and
show others how to trust in their experience, too."
