Are you sometimes afraid you might fail, and therefore don’t even try?
You may have failed in the past. This happens to everyone, but the people who achieved success, though confronted with failure, tried over and again, until they succeeded.
It is strange, but we often look for examples of people who failed, instead of people who succeeded. It is as if we don’t want to try, and therefore, keep looking for excuses. If you look for excuses for not doing something for fear of failure, you will always find them.
If you look for excuses to do something, to try, you will also find good reasons to do so.
People will always tell you that it is difficult to succeed, that you don’t have the talent, that it is a waste of time to try, and that you will fail. This means that they are experts on failure, not experts about success, so why should you listen to them?
You will never know what you can achieve until you try. If you are afraid of failure you will not try, and if you try, you will anticipate failure, look for failure, and might achieve failure.
On the other hand, if you overcome your fears, refuse to think on failure, and expect success, things would be different. You will try, and you will take action. You might fail, but you also might win and succeed.
If someone speaks about the difficulties that you might encounter, so you know what to expect, that is okay. However, if he focuses on the difficulties, is negative, and tries to discourage you, think twice before accepting his advice.
Don’t let other people’s beliefs and opinions stop you. Yes, sometimes they might be right, and you should listen to them. Open your eyes, ears and mind, use common sense and learn before you leap into a new venture.
Listen to positive people who achieved success, and not to negative people, who never tried to do anything in their lives.
You Can Overcome the Fear of Failure
How many times did you fall down, as a small child, when you started to walk? Probably many times, but this did not stop you to try again.
How many mistakes have you done, until you mastered a foreign language, learned to dance or to swim? Probably many times, but this did not stop you from trying again.
You can achieve success, in small matters and in big matters, when you overcome fear and discouragement.
You can overcome the fear of failure when you develop inner strength, willpower and self-discipline.
You can be afraid of failure and never try, and never makes changes in your life, and you can rise above this fear, and try. Your chances of success are far greater when you are equipped with the powers of willpower, self-discipline, affirmations and visualization.
Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.
– Og Mandino
Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently. – Henry Ford
There can be no failure to a man who has not lost his courage, his character, his self respect, or his self-confidence. He is still a King.
– Orison Swett Marden
