Fear of failure

What you will get: Reflections on failure as a friend


“What are you afraid of?”


So how come only a tiny percentage of people make their dreams a reality – creating financial freedom, success and happiness for themselves?


And for everyone else, those dreams remain as dreams?


A big part of it is fear.


You see…


In order to be truly successful you have to overcome any fears you might have.


And fear of failure is one of the most common fears.


It could be connected to…


Fear of losing respect
Fear of negative judgement
Fear of having too little money
Fear of disappointing yourself
Fear of disappointing others
Fear of a bruised ego
Fear of not meeting expectations


But the only thing you should really be afraid of is…


Not giving it your best shot!


As long as you have a clear purpose and goal, failure is your friend, not your enemy.


And what’s more…


Pretty much all of the most successful people will tell you that they failed many times before they finally reached the top of their mountain.


Think about it…


What has failure taught you so far in your life?


Some of your best learning has come and will come from failure.


Failure is an inevitable step in your path to success. And the bigger the failure, the bigger the opportunity for learning.


And remember…


Overcoming your fear of failure does not mean letting go of common sense.


You can still keep a foot firmly rooted in reality whilst at the same time actively moving towards your lifetime ambition.


That dream you have that really makes your heart sing.


So what’s stopping you?


Make sure you go get what you’ve always dreamed of from life.
And make sure you take your friend ‘failure’ with you on the journey.
