How To Overcome The Fear Of Failure

Which is greater for you?​

The desire to succeed or the desire to fail.

Most people either pursue their dreams or put a hold on them because of one of these desires is greater than the other.​

Obstacles we face are here to test our character not to stop us.​

Michael Jordan once said, “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”​

For most people, public failure becomes public humiliation and that leads most to retreat.​

If nobody was watching and you failed, you probably wouldn’t take it to heart too much.​

However too many people live their lives in a bubble, being in fear of what other people think so they never take the first step.​

But imagine if YOU did.​

Your courage to act is SO much more powerful than someone who is not an action taker and a criticizer.​

Many people would see Michael Jordan’s first part of his career as a failure but he calls it preparation.​

If he quitted when he failed then he wouldn’t have been able to enter the phase 2 of his career to become the most successful basketball player of all time.​

The moral of the story is that there’s no such thing as failure.​

If you gave it your all, learned something from the experience then you SUCCEEDED.​

The past does not represent your future.​

The only thing that keeps us from getting what we want is the story that we tell ourselves about why we can’t have it.​
