The Price of trying ...

Oft times when people fail to participate - it’s not that they are uninterested - it is because they are afraid (to try, or to speak their minds, etc)
I imagine, in times gone by (and still today to a lesser extent) that there would have been a big price to pay in any dominance hierarchy (tribe) for trying and failing grandly. The fear of failure was a powerful inhibitor to taking action. No-one wants to look goofy.
This is not as relevant today - and also, in this day and age, we can try and fail - lots of things - with a low probability of death being the price we pay.
But I get it - fear of failure is a real thing. But those of us who can prevail in that particular battle - will find they can learn a lot and live more effectively in the world.
