Dare, Don’t Be Afraid to Make Mistakes

Are You Afraid to Dare?

Don’t worry if you make mistakes. Don’t let mistakes intimidate you. Only people who dare, try, and persevere complete tasks and achieve success in their chosen field.

It is so comfortable to be passive, make no effort, and stick to the familiar and known. However, by doing so, we do not achieve anything of value, and we allow external influences to shape our lives.

Daring, trying new things, and making changes seem intimidating. It is more comfortable and seems safer to stay in the same place and in the same situation, even if you suffer.

Why Daring Is Intimidating?

  • There is the fear of making mistakes.
  • There is fear of change.
  • You are afraid you might look ridiculous.
  • If you dare, you might meet criticism.
  • There is a lack of self-esteem.
  • There is a lack of self-confidence.
  • You do not wish to leave your comfort zone.
  • You are afraid you might lose money and possessions.
  • You prefer the known and familiar, even if you are stuck in one place and make no progress.

The Fear of Making Mistakes

If you are afraid of making mistakes, and therefore, you do not dare, you will not experience anything new. This might lead to complaining that your life is dull and boring.

If you do not dare, even in small matters, every day will look the same.

If you wish to live a greater life, more interesting life, you should consider taking a step beyond your fears and start daring. You need to overcome your fear of making mistakes.

Overcoming the fear of making mistakes and starting to dare to do new things is not as difficult as you might think. It is a matter of attitude. It is a matter of changing your mindset; as the saying goes, ‘It is all in mind.’

Taking small steps, one step at a time, makes the process easier.

After the first step, it would be less intimidating to dare, even if you make mistakes and bad choices.

You can get over the fear of making mistakes if you are earnest about what you are doing and aware of the importance of the goal or task.

It natural to make mistakes. They are just rungs on the ladder to success.

All people who achieved success, any kind of success, dared to try. They did mistakes, and they failed over and again, but they were not afraid to make mistakes and they did not give up.

Dare, Do not be Afraid of Mistakes and Ridicule

From today, from now on, start to act and do things. Open your mind, look around you, seize opportunities, and start making changes in your life.

Get Out of Your Comfort Zone and Dare.

It would be a good idea to start with minor goals, and as you gain confidence, do bigger things.

Here are a few suggestions:

  1. Learn a foreign language.
  2. Go meet new people and make new friends.
  3. Start going to the gym.
  4. Greet your neighbors when you meet them on the street.
  5. Take a trip abroad.
  6. Redecorate your home.
  7. Ask your boss for a raise.
  8. Start doing things that you usually procrastinate doing or avoid doing.
  9. Try to be more assertive.

Choose what is more suitable to you or find other tasks or goal to develop your “daring ability”.

Dare, don’t be Afraid to Make Mistakes.

Gaining Experience Makes You Dare More

After gaining some experience you will feel more confident to dare handle bigger projects, such as:

  1. Find a better job
  2. Go back to college or start studying at the University
  3. Make the move you always wanted, to a new neighborhood, a new city, or a different country
  4. Start a business
  5. Turn a hobby into a business

These are just a few of the things you can dare to do.

If you make mistakes, it’s all right. Everyone make mistakes. Learn from them and go on. As said earlier, all successful people made mistakes, but they didn’t let their mistakes discourage them or deter them.

You Have the Strength Within You

This is all quite simple, yet it is not so easy to dare. It is not easy to ditch the fear of making mistakes and maybe looking ridiculous. This has nothing to do with finance, physical strength or education. It is all mental programming and a state of mind. It is something inside you, which you can change.

You need to find the strength and courage within you. You should learn to be courageous and daring, without the need to be pushed and motivated from the outside.

You have this strength within you, you only need to be conscious of it, and strengthen it. Affirmations, visualization, and inner strength are the tools to do this.

Learn to be a doer, by taking the initiative and acting now, without procrastinating or hesitation. As said earlier, start with simple little things to gain experience and confidence.

Do not give up easily. All the good things in life need time to grow, and daring is no exception.

  • Can you learn to speak fluently a foreign language, without making some mistakes at first?
  • Can you become a great cook, without learning, cooking and experimenting, and making some mistakes along the way?
  • Can you create a successful business, without learning, investing, making mistakes, and trying again?
  • Can you become an expert in any field, before you had enough experience?

You need to practice and you need to experiment if you wish to improve your abilities in any area of life.

Don’t worry if you make mistakes on the way. By making mistakes, you learn to improve and do better. You just have to take action. It’s not as difficult as it seems.

When you dare, you change your life.

  • When you dare, people treat you with more respect.
  • When you dare, you live a bigger life.

Dare to dare, but do so wisely. Dare to dare, but use your common sense. Daring does not mean being thoughtless and rushing into unnecessary risks.
