When you’ve experienced failure and rejection your first instinct is to not make that same mistake again, so often times you’re hesitant to try new things, you fear the unknown and you choose to stay in your comfort zone. Chances are you’re probably missing out on new opportunities. The constant fear of failure is inevitable if you’ve already been in that situation a couple of times before. But do you think that being trapped in constant fear can help you become successful in life? It just restrains you from accomplishing something great for yourself. So how can you overcome the fear of failure? I’ve compiled a couple of advice to help you cope up with failure and the things you can do to avoid feeling this way.
What could have caused your fear of failure? Is it your relationship not working out, or you didn’t get that promotion you’ve always wanted, or your business failing? It could be anything. I know as we go through life we encounter daily challenges and difficulties that could either make or break us, but whatever you’re going through just think of it as an opportunity to grow and be a better version of yourself, it’s like this when a door closes, a window opens that means greater things and endless possibilities are just around the corner, so just be patient.
How can you overcome the feeling of fear? Fear is defined as a feeling or emotion perceived by a threat or danger that might happen. When you’re afraid of something you tend to avoid certain situations that might put your life in harm’s way, but what if overcoming your fear is the only way to live your dreams? It’s like when you want to reach the top of the mountain but you’re afraid of heights, what can you do? if you set your mind to do the impossible then the only thing that’s stopping you is yourself, remove all the doubts and surround yourself with positivity that’s the only way you can have the strength to move forward and reach the peak, it’s going to take a lot of courage and determination but I promise you that once you’ve conquered your fear it’ll all be worth it at the end for the view from the top is always the best view.
We need to remind ourselves that fear is just an emotion and we are bigger than that, a positive attitude is all it takes for us to overcome the fear of failure, just think of it this way it’s only a bad day, not a bad life when you stumble and fall then go back up and keep walking.
