In lo, these 60 years I’ve learned a lesson or two.
Even successful people have self doubts (and many failures.)
If only I had listened to my mother.
She used to say, ‘Try it! What have you got to lose?’
I would answer, ‘Lose face, be humiliated, and be labeled a failure.’
She would say, ‘So?’
It took me a long time to realize just how wise she was.
