“The one who falls and gets up is stronger than the one who never tried. Do not fear failure but rather fear not trying.”  ― Roy T. Bennett

Trying something new may:
-Increase your self-confidence 
-Open doors to enlightening experiences
-Improve your memory, mood and motivation
-Increase your adaptability and agility
-Also, when we experience something new and like it, our brain triggers a release of dopamine. 

Why is it hard to try new things?
-Humans are often afraid of the unknown. 
-Familiar things are more comfortable and easier.
-Trying new things requires a lot of effort and courage.

Arthur Ashe says: “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” 

Palliative care nurse Bronnie Ware recorded the top 5 regrets she heard from her patients as she cared for them at the end of life:
•"I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me."
•"I wish I hadn't worked so hard."
•"I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings."
•"I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends."
•"I wish that I had let myself be happier."
