Being fearless is an excellent life philosophy.
If you never do anything you haven't done before, well then you'll never do anything new, will you?
Eat raw squid. Go skydiving. Knit something you've never seen before. Join Peace Corps. Write a book. Whatever.
With the possible exception of Laws of Physics and Medical issues, "I can't" is just an excuse for "I don't want to."
If you don't want to, say so. But trust me. You absolutely CAN.
