One of the hardest things in life is to feel like you suck.  You aren't good, you aren't talented, everyone else is better, you're a failure, etc, etc.  Because of these "ego" trips, we will intentionally stay away from things we aren't good at.  The upside to this is that if all you do is this one thing, then you will probably get pretty good at it.  The downside is that you will be good at such an extremely limited amount of things.  With this, you will come in contact with many more things you suck at than you are good at.  At some point, you have to be able to let go of all the feelings of failure or suckiness.  Think about a young toddler, you put them in gymnastics and they may or may not be very good at all the different things they come in contact with.  But most of the time, it doesn't matter if they are good or not.  They are having a blast jumping, climbing, rolling, pushing, reaching, etc.  They just enjoy the activity!  This is important!  Once they "learn" that if they fail, they are looked down on (or feel that they are), they will start to stay away from those things.  This is terrible for the child because they lose developmental training.   As adults, we need to learn to relish to chance to do things we suck at.  I'm not saying you only do things you suck at, but you can't back down to the opportunity, and many times you need to create chances for you to do it.  The moment you learn to like these opportunities, then it becomes a true sense of power.  You aren't controlled by fear or by failure.  You will happily take the opportunities to make yourself better each and every day.  And who doesnt want to be better than they were yesterday?  :)
