Have you ever really wanted to do something but the fear of failure has stopped you from doing it?
Fear is an emotion that keeps us in our comfort zones so that we are ‘safe’. So many of us fear failure, but how many of you believe that failure is actually a good thing? I do! I believe failure isn’t something to be scared of, if anything it is something we should welcome. Failure aids our progression and success!
We learn faster from our mistakes and are able to therefore move forward much more quickly! Think about when a toddler is learning to walk, for example, they don’t sit there wondering what will happen if they fall over. They don’t worry about whether everyone will laugh at them if they don’t manage to walk the first time, or the second time, or the third. They just keep trying until they succeed! They don’t give up because of fear. As we grow older, we let doubt creep in more and more until it completely stops us doing the things we want to do. That’s no way to live! So, in other words, we should be more like a toddler.
Don’t let the fear of failure paralyze you and stop you doing something you’ve always dreamed of doing. The more we let ‘fear’ win the more it takes hold of us. I’ve learned that the hard way and now I am not afraid to fail as I now know it’s a good thing. I know that I can learn from those bumps in the road and move forward much more quickly.
Feeling the fear and doing it anyway is how I live my life now… totally out of my comfort zone. I have learned to embrace my fear and turn it into confidence and action rather than letting it hold me back and I now trust my gut instinct way more than I ever used to.
Take time to watch the video below.. I watch it a lot when I’m worried about doing something a bit scary.. ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’!! In fact if you haven’t read the book of the same title by Susan Jeffers I would highly recommend it!
Is it about time you took a leap of faith outside of your comfort zone?
Have you ever wanted to wake up each day & love the life you live? Are you looking for a change of career?
Would you love to be doing what you are passionate about every day and be handsomely rewarded for it, but you don’t know where to start?
I love my life now however this wasn’t always the case. When I used to work full time in a ‘proper job’ and only taught dance/fitness part time as a hobby it got me down as I wished I could do it every day but didn’t know how. I took the leap of faith in 2014 to quit my full time job as a PA in order to focus on running my very own business. That leap of faith was the best decision I ever made and I haven’t looked back since!
I would love to invite you to one of my upcoming webinars where I will be sharing with you my top tips for running a business you love!
Could this be the first step towards living the life of your dreams?
