Why You Fear Failure

No one likes to fail. You are not alone. But failure is part of life. Whether you like it or not, you are going to fail. It is going to get worse before it gets better. There is no overnight success. You are not going to master your work overnight. If you want to grow, if you want to conquer your fears, don’t rush the process. Because it takes time to learn something. Don’t expect things to turn out right the first time. It is not going to happen. If you expect it to work out for you the first time, believe me, that is a losing strategy. It won’t work. Just give yourself time to do your thing. Things are not always going to work out perfectly the first time. Instead of beating yourself up for not completing your work, why not give yourself credit for even trying it. Respect failure. Respect the process. Because everything takes time to do, especially when you are doing it for the first time. If you want to change your life, from now on, you must change your meaning of failure. Failure is not failure. It is a way forward. Because you cannot grow without failure. That is what separates the successful ones from the rest of us. They are not afraid of failure. You shouldn’t be afraid of failure. Do not fear it. Use failure to move yourself forward in your life. When you fail, live it. When you fail, ask for help. Do not be scared to ask for help. Celebrate it when you get it. Help is healthy. It is life. When you make mistakes, fix them. Own them. Do not blame anyone for your mistakes. Instead of blaming other people for your own error, celebrate yourself for knowing what you don’t know.

What To Do When You Don’t Get What You Want

You cannot separate failure from success. Life is not about success; it is about learning from your failures. Do not reduce your mind. Because if you don’t try something new, you are not going to grow. When you do your work, you must not be afraid of failure. Failure is part of growth. Look, when you are trying to get things done, when you are trying to learn something new, or trying to become the true you, you are not going to get it right the first time. Whether you get it right or wrong, do not let the fear of failure stop you from living your life. When you fail, celebrate it, learn from it. Do not worry about failure, worry about not doing anything to change your situation. You matter. Your situation matters. Your life matters. Do not delegate your life. Do not be too hard on yourself when you fail. It is not your fault. You are just trying to change yourself. But you must be brave to conquer your fears. Be brave when you fail. It is going to happen. You cannot stop it. The only way you can stop yourself from failing is to stop living. If you don’t get it right the first time, do it again. When it comes to failure, you can always do it again. But don’t make it a habit. Because failure is not your name.
