It would take me more than a week to tell you how many times I have thought up something, started it and never completed it. Or how I actually went through with it and realized how much of a flop it was. Because of these experiences, often times I have been hesitant to do new anything, mainly out of the fear of failing. What I have learnt over the years is that the fear of failure is more deadly than the failure itself. Can you imagine the creations that would not have existed had everyone remain fearful of failing?
In overcoming our fears, we must first realize that in anything that we set out to do, failure is a possibility. Once you have that in mind, there is no let done if it does happen. Tell yourself that failure is a natural part of life, growth and success. Next, concentrate turning your thoughts from negative ones to those that are more positive. With the right outlook, our failures become mere stepping stones. Finally, never give up on yourself. Even if you give up on a project, a goal, or a task, never give up on yourself! Remember, once you are still in the race, you really haven't failed. Often times, failure is the precursor to success and the only way to succeed is through persistence.
As of today let's decide to take charge of ours lives and become the success we all deserve to be.Do what it takes and learn from every speed bump on the way. Make it a good week!
