If you want to grow, you can’t avoid failure. You are going to fail. If you are not failing, you are not growing. The problem is that people want to succeed, but they don’t want to fail. They don’t want to make mistakes. They don’t want to take risks. They just want to remain where they are. If you keep doing the same thing, you will keep getting the same results. To face your fears, you must do what works. Don’t do things that are hurting your life. Don’t stick with things that are not working well for you. Stay away. If something is not working, don’t stick with it. let it go. It is okay to fail at something. If you don’t want to fail at something, you will fail at everything. It is okay to fail. If you are not failing, or you haven’t failed in your life, you are playing with yourself.
“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”- Paulo Coelho
If you fail at something, take action to change it. If you cannot change it, then try something else. Waiting for the perfect time is not going to help you achieve your goals. There is no such thing as a perfect time. The perfect time to do something great is now. If not now, when are you going to do it?
It is okay to be by yourself. It is okay to live your own life in your way. If you are not comfortable living your life, if you are not comfortable being yourself, if you are not comfortable loving yourself, what are you doing to yourself?
“We live together, we act on, and react to, one another; but always and in all circumstances we are by ourselves.”– Aldous Huxley
Stop preparing to live your life. Your life is unique. You must be comfortable living it. Don’t apologize for living your life in your own way. Don’t! If you have been waiting for people to love you before you love yourself, you are not helping your life. You are hurting your life, your growth. Live your life. Stop waiting to live. You are not going to be here forever. You are going to die one day. Why not make your life worth living? Why not stop waiting for who is not waiting for you? Whether you are afraid to live your life or not, you are responsible for your own life. You are responsible for everything concerning you. Don’t expect too much from people. Don’t expect what you cannot give yourself from anyone. Do it for you.
If you want happiness from other people, give happiness to yourself. If you want love from other people, give love to yourself. Why? Because what you can’t do for yourself, no one can do it for you. It is your life.
