WHEN WE WERE YOUNG, HAVING FAMILY, FRIENDS AND TEACHERS WHO LOVED US, SUPPORTED US, AND ENCOURAGED US, ALLOWED US TO HAVE SPACE FOR PROTECTED EXPLORATION.

Protected exploration allows us to safely fail and to try again.

Protected exploration does not avoid pain and embarrassment, but helps us tolerate these feelings and to press on.

When we wonder why others do not see the same opportunities as we do, or have the same drive to try, fail, and try again, it may be because our brothers and sisters have never had the experience of protected exploration.
