How To Conquer The Fear Of Failure

fuck-your-feelings-cover

Living In Constant Worry, Doubt And Fear Makes Your Life Miserable And It Takes Away All Your Joy, Fun And Happiness.

It seems like, worry, doubt and fear is a very widespread “illness” in our society. Almost everyone seems to worry that this and that may happen. A lot of people are worried about their future, their financial situation, that their husband or wife may leave them, that they may get ill, have a terrible accident… and there are surely hundreds of other worries and fears.

Are you one of them? Do you worry too much as well?

How much of it did actually come true? Probably very little. On the other hand, things may have happened you didn’t even imagine or think about.

So, why spending weeks, months and even years worrying about something that probably never happens? It just doesn’t make any sense to torture yourself because of something that only exists in your mind and has nothing to do with your current reality.

Let’s say, because of certain events and circumstances your logic tells you “things don’t look good…” and you start worrying. Here is what happens: 

  • Because of your worries and fears, you will start feeling worse and worse.
  • Whenever there is an event you would normally enjoy, those nagging fears will take away most of the joy.
  • Staying for a long time in the emotion of worry and fear will not only make you tired, but it will also make you more prone to illness.
  • As within, so without. If you spend most of your time in worry and fear, you will also create unpleasant events and circumstances in your life that correspond with the energy of fear. In other words, there is a good chance that you will actually manifest what you are so afraid of – just because you constantly think and worry about it.

In other words, there is absolutely nothing good that can come from spending only even 1 second in worry, doubt or fear.

If I Could See At Least 1 Tiny Advantage You Could Get Out Of Worrying, I Would Say: “Yes, Every Now And Then Worry For A Few Minutes, Because It Is Good For…” But, There Is Absolutely Nothing Positive About Those Negative Emotions And That’s Why I Suggest You Simply Banish Worry, Doubt And Fear From Your Life.

That’s right, you no longer need those emotions, you are done with them, so, just let go of them.

But, bad things happen to people every day…

Of course, unpleasant things happen to all of us. BUT,  to constantly worry about what could happen won’t prevent unpleasant things from happening. Quite the contrary, that’s actually a very efficient way to attract more unpleasant things into your life.

Yes, unpleasant things happen. But when they happen, we simply deal with them, we find a solution and we grow through them. We become bigger, wiser, better…

And believe me, tackling those challenging situations is far easier from a positive mindset than from a mindset that’s entrenched in worry, doubt and fear.

Also, you may have already realized that being in the middle of a storm and dealing with a challenging situation actually feels better than the state of dense fear that only exists in your imagination and is created out of the constant worry that something bad MIGHT happen sometime in the future.

So, I think we can agree that spending even a minute in doubt and fear won’t add anything positive to your life.

But, the big question is how can you get rid of your worries and fears?

You say, those emotions just overtake your life and it isn’t much you can do about it. That’s wrong because those worries and fears are simply the results of unhealthy thoughts and beliefs you engaged in over and over again – thousands of times.

The Exact Same Way You Created Those Fears, You Can Also Get Rid Of Them And Replace Them With Much Better Feeling Emotions. All You Need To Do Is To Change Those Core Beliefs That Lead To Negative Thoughts, Which In Turn Create Your Worries And Fears.

You may smile about the child who is afraid of the green monster in the closet, but most of the worries and fears of us adults are not any more real.

Just think about some of your fears – right now, they are only a product of your imagination. Once something unpleasant happens, you are no longer afraid of it, because it already happened and you have to deal with it. But then you may be afraid of what could happen next. And again, at that stage, “what could happen next” will only exist in your imagination.

”Failure Is An Opportunity To Learn And Grow.”

 

84e6bd66be8aabe7faf9baebd6641071

”Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.”

I am not sure who said the original quote “failure is not a person, it’s an event”. Sometimes, if we are honest, we can find fault in our plan, in our strategy, or maybe our commitment. Other times, we may have given absolutely everything, left it all on the field so-to-speak, and yet we still somehow managed to come up short. Either way, failure usually results in us asking one or both of these questions:

What is wrong with me?

What have I done to deserve this?

Have you ever asked yourself either one of those questions? I know I have, Of course, you have and you are not alone (if you answered No, we need to check you for alien DNA).

 

Being introspective is just part of being human. We are hardwired to question. When we fail, it is natural to wonder why. The problem arises not in asking why we failed; it’s in letting the reason for the failure define who we are or letting it create a fear that keeps us from trying again.

quotes-17

 

It’s not about avoiding failure. It’s about taking healthy ways to view, dissect, and learn from failure. Failure, just like every other obstacle in life, is another opportunity for you to grow. The greatest blessings in my life come from the treasure that God used in my trash or, in other words, the greatest blessings came from my greatest mistakes.

”Failure Is Good”

”Being Wrong: Adventures in the Margin of Error. ”

The sweetest victory is the one that’s most difficult. The one that requires you to reach down deep inside, to fight with everything you’ve got, to be willing to leave everything out there on the battlefield—without knowing, until that do-or-die moment, if your heroic effort will be enough. Society doesn’t reward defeat, and you won’t find many failures documented in history books.

edison

The exceptions are those failures that become steppingstones to later success. Such is the case with Thomas Edison, whose most memorable invention was the light bulb, which purportedly took him 1,000 tries before he developed a successful prototype. “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” a reporter asked. “I didn’t fail 1,000 times,” Edison responded. “The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”

Unlike Edison, many of us avoid the prospect of failure. In fact, we’re so focused on not failing that we don’t aim for success, settling instead for a life of mediocrity. When we do make missteps, we gloss over them, selectively editing out the miscalculations or mistakes in our life’s résumé. “Failure is not an option,” NASA flight controller Jerry C. Bostick reportedly stated during the mission to bring the damaged Apollo 13 back to Earth, and that phrase has been etched into the collective memory ever since. To many in our success-driven society, failure isn’t just considered a non-option—it’s deemed a deficiency,“Of all the things we are wrong about, this idea of error might well top the list,”  “It is our meta-mistake: We are wrong about what it means to be wrong. Far from being a sign of intellectual inferiority, the capacity to err is crucial to human cognition.”

Failure- Life’s Greatest Teacher-

“I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.”
– Michael Jordan

When we take a closer look at the great thinkers throughout history, a willingness to take on failure isn’t a new or extraordinary thought at all. From the likes of Augustine, Darwin, and Freud to the business mavericks and sports legends Michael Jordan of today, failure is as powerful a tool as any in reaching great success. “Failure and defeat are life’s greatest teachers [but] sadly, most people, and particularly conservative corporate cultures, don’t want to go there,” “Instead they choose to play it safe, to fly below the radar, repeating the same safe choices over and over again. They operate under the belief that if they make no waves, they attract no attention; no one will yell at them for failing because they generally never attempt anything great at which they could possibly fail (or succeed).”

1186001398e13d6555df70de4e73d714

“The quickest road to success is to possess an attitude toward the failure of ‘no fear,’ ”  “To do their work well, to be successful and to keep their companies competitive, leaders and workers on the front lines need to stick their necks out a mile every day. They have to deliver risky, edgy, breakthrough ideas, plans, presentations, advice, technology, products, leadership, bills and more. And they have to deliver all this fearlessly—without any fear whatsoever of failure, rejection or punishment.”

Reaching Your Potential-

“No man ever achieved worth-while success who did not, at one time or other, find himself with at least one foot hanging well over the brink of failure.“
– Napoleon Hill

The same holds true for personal quests, whether in overcoming some specific challenge or reaching your full potential in all aspects of life. To achieve your personal best, to reach unparalleled heights, to make the impossible possible, you can’t fear failure, you must think big, and you have to push yourself. When we think of people with this mindset, we imagine the daredevils, the pioneers, the inventors, the explorers: They embrace failure as a necessary step to unprecedented success. But you don’t have to walk a tightrope, climb Mount Everest or cure polio to employ this mindset in your own life.

ByU72HmIgAIuGXT

When the rewards of success are great, embracing possible failure is key to taking on a variety of challenges, whether you’re reinventing yourself by starting a new business or allowing yourself to trust another person to build a deeper relationship. “To achieve any worthy goal, you must take risks,”

‘Decide whether or not the goal is worth the risks involved. If it is, stop worrying.’ ” Of course, the risks you take should be calculated; you shouldn’t fly blindly into the night and simply hope for the best. Achieving the goal or at least waging a heroic effort requires preparation, practice and some awareness of your skills and talents.

Easing Into a Fearless Mindset

“One of the biggest secrets to success is operating inside your strength      zone but outside of your comfort zone.”

“One of the biggest secrets to success is operating inside your strength zone but outside of your comfort zone,”  Although you might fail incredibly, you might succeed incredibly—and that’s why incredible risk and courage are requisite. Either way, you’ll learn more than ever about your strengths, talents and resolve, and you’ll strengthen your will for the next challenge. If this sounds like dangerous territory, it can be. But there are ways to ease into this fearless mindset.

Maintain a Positive Attitude

buddha1

The first is to consciously maintain a positive attitude so that, no matter what you encounter, you’ll be able to see the lessons of the experience and continue to push forward. “It’s true that not everyone is positive by nature,”,  “Reward them and applaud their efforts in front of the entire organization so everyone understands it is OK to fail.Motivated by the thought that, “if I become complacent and don’t take risks, someone will notice what I am doing and improve upon my efforts over time, and put me out of work. You’ve got to keep finding better ways to run your life, or someone will take what you’ve accomplished, improve upon it, and be very pleased with the results. Keep moving forward or die.”

”Life Is A Beautiful Struggle”

”Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.

If you think you’re wandering alone trying to raise your voice so everybody can hear you roaring, you’re damn wrong. In fact, you are surrounded by people who fight bloody combats in their minds between success and failure.

Whoever told you that life and success come easily is either pleasing you, or talk nonsense. Life is a balance of good and bad times along with picking out the best lessons out of both experiences. The theory of yin-yang shows life as one simple equation.

However, our main goal is to see ourselves happy being worth in a community. Unconsciously we want to be appreciated for what we do. It’s best to find your talent and spread it around the world. However easy it may sound, the previous sentence determines a lifespan of your whole life!

In the next top 10 signs that you’re succeeding in life, you will surely find at least couple of emotions with whom you fight the harsh battle.

”The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths.”

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

why-is-life-such-a-constant-struggle1. You are determined more than ever.

The determination is the first thing you do consciously that will take you directly to your wishes. The determination means that you already have a clear goal and willing to sacrifice everything to grab that goal with both hands.

Emotions will rush through you to go back to the old habits. They will try to tuck in every negative thought to cut you off from your vision. Determination will determine (as the word says itself) that you will firmly stick to your future plan no matter the cost of the bill you have to pay.

If you ever feel this way, you are doing it right. Don’t flow away to your doubts for short-term satisfaction. GO FOR THE LONG RUN.

”Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.”

Oprah Winfrey

2. You feel like breaking down.

At the exact moment when you feel like the world falls down on you is the moment you have to decide two things: go down with it or elevate stronger than ever.

If you read books about self-determination, watch seminars and listen to audiobooks you will notice that all the knowledge is used to encourage us through harsh times – the ones where the world falls down on us. They remind us to see the beauty behind the thorns on the way.

Life is one big test where we have to see through all perspectives. The price we have to pay not to blur our dreams when encountering the weight of the world on our shoulders.

Know that giving up is going to take everything you wanted away (depending on your struggle.) So combine your energy and explode it out to raise yourself.

”Nothing is given to a man on earth – struggle is built into the nature of life, and conflict is possible – the hero is the man who lets no obstacle prevent him from pursuing the values he has chosen.

Andrew Bernstein

3. You firmly want to give up.

Following the sign of the hard struggle when you feel like breaking down, the mental state to give up will invade your mind. That’s really a sign that you are doing the right thing. I would state it as finding comfort in the discomfort.

Have in mind that you are encountering thousands of negative energies, angry drivers, wireless signals, toxic air, and what so not.

Rely on the side that you’ve been brave enough to get to this exact point after all the problems and circumstances, so don’t give up when you’re one step ahead of seeing the sun!

”The philosophy of life is this: Life is not a struggle, not a tension… Life is bliss. It is eternal wisdom, eternal existence.”

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

4. You choose to avoid night-out overwork.

pexels-photo-2050001

Everyone needs to hang out from time to time. We exchange thoughts, enjoy the time with our buddies, and have a fun time. But sometimes night-out needs to be avoided if we have crucial work to finish that might take us closer to the vision. And don’t get me wrong. I am no workaholic too.

We need to see from the perspective that we earn night-outs without having a hesitation in unfinished business at home (or work.) When we have all things done for that particular time, we can enjoy as much as we can, but not before that.

Free time needs to be earned through previous successful days of work. Believe me; the best memories are made when you have nothing left behind to occupy your mind.

”Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest idea, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth.”

Swami Vivekananda

5. You are less with wrong people.

First, I am no introvert, but quite the opposite. When I was having a tough, lonely period in my life I acknowledged the brightest lessons.

In those times you reveal your true friends and people who care about you the most.

While being lonely may seem like a dark period and something might be wrong with us, that period of our life is the enlightening. You are left alone with your experience to form your future.

Also, do not avoid people to reveal yourself, but when it comes to your future plans, take criticism seriously, but not personally. That’s what most people do. They criticize ideas and visions. You mustn’t let that touch yours.

”Ours is one continued struggle against degradation sought to be inflicted upon us by the European, who desire to degrade us to the level of the raw Kaffir, whose occupation is hunting and whose sole ambition is to collect a certain number of cattle to buy a wife with, and then pass his life in indolence and nakedness.”

Mahatma Gandhi

6. You are occupied with your success.

I think when being asked for occupation, we should answer with “success.” Emotions play with our mind when we determine to succeed in life. As I previously mentioned, we all have bad habits that have to be removed. That’s not easy at all.

Success should make us happy. It shouldn’t mean that “success” is endless money and one-mile houses. It means finishing consecutive small tasks every day. The big picture will come at the right time. Like a painter crafts his masterpiece. Piece by piece, Leonardo da Vinci made Mona Lisa.

If you are occupied with executing small tasks every day, you are walking the right, unique, authentic way of yours.

”Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.

Martin Luther King, Jr.”

7. You exchange life for something only you see.

First off, you sacrifice life with everything you do daily. You literally give up (something important and most valued) for the sake of your considerations. You exchange life for the picture in your head of rightfulness.

You see, when we imagine things EVERY DAY, we attract things we imagine. So when it comes to sacrificing we better do it for our perfect picture in our heads.

And no, you are giving up life for nothing. You switch every second and hand out struggle to your vision. The most interesting, frightening and motivational part is that you don’t know whether you will make it. But as we know, it’s all about perspective.

”The power of a person derives not from the office he occupies but from a clear sense of direction and aspiration and from a willingness to struggle for his ways and beliefs.”

Ariel Sharon

travel-quote-dare-to-live-your-life-482x7208. You know your goal as soon as you wake up.

Waking up may be the hardest part of the day for some people, but not for those who have the clear concise vision (of at least) how they should spend their day to be closer to a better tomorrow.

Every one of us can easily create a positive and creative way of thinking in a short period of time. If that time is in the morning, there’s a probability that the whole day will be spending positively.

Since the body falls asleep, “the machine” stops and rests until the morning. After that, the machine needs to be fed with an instant motivation to drive us around daily problems and obstacles on the road.

Imagine life differently. Find more comparisons, maybe funnier ones. You mustn’t look things as real as they are. The mind can expand as long as you’re willing to. Feed your mind with beauty in the morning.

”All of us, in a sense, struggle continuously all the time, because we never get what we want. The important thing which I’ve really learned is how do you not give up because you never succeed in the first attempt.”

Mukesh Ambani

life-is-a-struggle

9. You are struggling with every success.

When you walk the hard road, know that millions of people went through it. They even walked uglier roads to grasp success.

As billions of people passed the car tests and driving lessons, success means life is putting you to a test to see if you’re hard enough to endure it.

My thoughts were that you are not alone. If you were in somebody else’s shoes, you will see that your road is “piece of cake” according to theirs.

Know that people struggle through life to get things worth having.

“Nothing worth having comes easy.”

Life has to mean only in the struggle. Triumph or defeat is in the hands of the Gods. So let us celebrate the struggle!

Stevie Wonder

10. You are not alone.

Whoever reads this, you are not alone. You interact with the world. You attract the things you imagine. You are feeling exactly as you are now because of circumstances you made or attracted. Sometimes (even though very rarely) we are a victim of circumstance, but you have everything you need to change that.

It’s never too late to change your community, your life, your world. If you think you’re on the right foot, the world will get in accordance with it. If you want to change it’s never too late, either at an 8 or 98.

If you still think you’re not succeeding in life, one of the wealthiest people on earth succeeded when they taught they are lost in life.

The Moirai (Moerae)-” Decide Fates Or Person’s Destiny”

The Moirai (Moerae), also referred to as the Fates, represent the idea of “destiny” in Greek mythology. The Ancient Greeks had a habit of creating deities to represent abstract concepts as a way of explaining their world. However, the Moirai do more than just represent destiny – they are the personification of it. It is understood that the Moirai controlled people’s lives in different ways from the time they were born to the time they died.

It is interesting to note that the word, Moirai, meant a portion or a part of a whole in Ancient Greek. The connotation here is that it referred to a portion of a bounty, as would be the case if people were to divide up a treasure. Thus, the Morai were seen as being keepers of a person’s destiny, or her specific allotment of life. Here’s more information about who the Moirai were and the role they played in Greek mythology.

Who the Moirai (Moerae) Were

It is largely understood that the Moirai, or the Fates, were three of the six children that Themis, the goddess of Justice, and Zeus, the king of the gods, had together. The other three children were the Horai, or the Hours. The names of the three Fates were Clotho, Lachesis, and Atropos. They each had their own, unique characteristics.

  • Clotho. She was known as the spinner because she “spun” the very thread of a person’s life. She spun the thread from her Distaff directly to her Spindle.
  • Lachesis – Once Clotho spun the thread, Lachesis would measure it for each person. Each person had different lengths of thread, indicated that they all had different life spans.
  • Atropos – She was responsible for cutting the thread, which indicates that she controlled when life would end. She also chose the way each person would die.

As you can see, Clotho was always associated with the beginning of life. She essentially created it by spinning the thread. Lachesis controlled the length of a person’s life, and Atropos was always associated with death. Thus, the three Fates essentially represent Birth, Life, and Death.

The Appearance of the Moirai

Unlike their siblings, the Horai, the Moirai were always depicted as ugly old women. Note that the Horai were always depicted as young, beautiful women. The Ancient Greeks appeared to have feared the Moirai. After all, one of the Fates (Moerae) were said to have controlled every aspect of a person’s life, including their death. As a result, most Ancient Greeks feared them and as a result, they imagined them with unflattering appearances. They were also depicted as crippled, stern, inflexible, and severe. They were usually depicted together as a group of three and they were often depicted with their objects. For instance, Clotho was usually shown with her spindle and Atropos was depicted with her cutting shears.

The Moirai, also referred to as the Fates, were an interesting part of Greek mythology. They were three of the children of Themis and Zeus and they were always associated with a person’s destiny.

The Moirai (Moerae)-'' Decide Fates Or Person's Destiny''

The Moirai (Moerae), also referred to as the Fates, represent the idea of “destiny” in Greek mythology. The Ancient Greeks had a habit of creating deities to represent abstract concepts as a way of explaining their world. However, the Moirai do more than just represent destiny – they are the personification of it. It is understood that the Moirai controlled people’s lives in different ways from the time they were born to the time they died.

It is interesting to note that the word, Moirai, meant a portion or a part of a whole in Ancient Greek. The connotation here is that it referred to a portion of a bounty, as would be the case if people were to divide up a treasure. Thus, the Morai were seen as being keepers of a person’s destiny, or her specific allotment of life. Here’s more information about who the Moirai were and the role they played in Greek mythology.

Who the Moirai (Moerae) Were

It is largely understood that the Moirai, or the Fates, were three of the six children that Themis, the goddess of Justice, and Zeus, the king of the gods, had together. The other three children were the Horai, or the Hours. The names of the three Fates were Clotho, Lachesis, and Atropos. They each had their own, unique characteristics.

  • Clotho. She was known as the spinner because she “spun” the very thread of a person’s life. She spun the thread from her Distaff directly to her Spindle.
  • Lachesis – Once Clotho spun the thread, Lachesis would measure it for each person. Each person had different lengths of thread, indicated that they all had different life spans.
  • Atropos – She was responsible for cutting the thread, which indicates that she controlled when life would end. She also chose the way each person would die.
