How to Overcome The Fear Of Failure
Updated: Dec 5, 2019
Failing can be intemidating and can stop us from taking action due to the risk that we might fail and suffer the consequences of failing.
But, failure has got some amazing advantegs.
Yes yes, you heard me, advantages!
hey guys, this is Juan here from online entrepreneur now and today I want to talk to you about how to overcome the fear of failure.
And the reason I want to talk to you about it is because fear is something that is stopping a lot of us from moving forward and achieving what we want in our lives.
With that said, understand that fear is a good thing.
It's keeping us safe and it's keeping us from jumping off of rooftops, but it doesn't always fit our reality today.
Another reason we are so afraid to fail today is that we are conditioned from school and from university to fear failure because we are tested all the time.
And if we don't pass the test we fail and we don't move forward, we're out.
So our society has conditioned us to fear failure.
But that's not the case when it comes to real success because real success comes after failing a lot and learning from your mistakes.
And if you go to any successful person and you ask them: "have you failed in your life?"
They will tell you "I've failed a lot get to where I am".
So understand you can use failure to learn.
Use it as a lesson!
Just to give you an example - the famous inventor Thomas Edison has failed so many times before he was able to create a patent and he has got over a thousand patents to his name.
So understand he's failed so many times but he was able to learn from his mistakes until he was able to succeed and create his patent.
Thus, the solution to change your beliefs about failure is to use fear as your friend.
Turn fear on itself.
You gotta fear more what will happen if you don't create the life that you want.
If you don't try.
And think of failure as a lesson.
So for example, if you want to create a business and you're afraid to invest and fail, think what will happen if you don't do it.
If you don't build a business how will your life look like?
Will you be fulfilled?
Will you be happy?
And you gotta make that fear bigger than the fear of failure.
Then you will act in spite of your fear of failure.
