Fear of Failure: a good reason not to!

Fear of Failure: a good reason not to! (Tweet this!)

This picture came to me via the Freethinkers Club on Facebook today.

I like these sort of motivational pictures. Freethinkers is one of many that share a thought (or several thoughts) for the day. It certainly keeps my spirits uplifted when I log onto Facebook and see them (who says Facebook is a negative experience??)

The Fear of Failure is one of those conditions which I intend to do some more investigation on in future posts. I’ve  suffered from this ‘afflication’ a lot in the past. To be honest, though, what is ‘failure’? Who actually does ‘fail’ in life? If you ask me, the only people that fail are the ones who allow themselves to fail!

Peter Jones (of Dragon’s Den fame and a person who could be very much included in the above portraits) once said that there is no such thing as failure – only ‘feedback.’ In other words, so called ‘failure’ is really just a learning process on the path to success.

If we never learned from our mistakes, how would we ever truly learn to succeed? Success is really a culmination of multiple incidents of failure. It only manifests after having learnt something from each ‘negative’ experience and (as Jurgen Wolff says), ‘doing something different’.

We should see life as a complete learning process, where we experience something, analyse and understand it before deciding what we will do different in future. (This is know as ELC, and will feature in the next blog post.) Einstein (one of those featured above), said that the definition of insanity is ‘doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results‘. How true!

Never allow yourself to become stuck in the same mindset. Learn to see things from different perspectives and be prepared to try new possibilities. And, remember, your beliefs are your reality – not reality itself. You can change them and achieve whatever you want. Just like me liking the Freethinkers page and seeing loads of inspiring pictures and quotes instead of all the negative stuff, you can create your own reality.

Don’t let the Fear of Failure stand in your way!
