Fear of Failure

When you fail or make a mistake
You believe that it says something about you
That, at the very core of your being

You’re not good enough

You’re unworthy

You’re worse than other people who didn’t fail

You know what I’m going to say here, right?
Obviously that’s all complete crap
It doesn’t mean anything about you
Except for one thing

You tried
You made the attempt
You got up off your fat ass and did something


When you look at it that way
You should be more terrified of not failing
Nobody succeeds first time at everything
Competence takes effort!
Imagine never failing
You’d be a drooling idiot
You would have learned NOTHING
At High School I put in zero effort
Because it was all easy
I never failed
And then when I went to University
I was that drooling idiot
I had learned NOTHING
Because I hadn’t tried before that


Enough of my failures

Here’s what you can do to smash the fear of failure…
Start failing
Take that funny feeling in your gut
That apprehension
The worry of “what if”
And make it your signal to GO GO GO!
And then when you fail, learn from it
Take a moment to appreciate what happened and what you can do better next time

Then you can join the ranks of such epic failures as Thomas Edison, Walt Disney, JK Rowling
Total losers like that
Who failed miserably but didn’t give enough of a shit to let it stop them
When you become indifferent to failure
Even welcome it
You will be INVINCIBLE

In my 1:1 program, The Confidence to WIN, I teach my clients how to take the fear of failure and turn it into a lust for success, a massive desire for achievement
No more dithering
No more doubt
