Fear of failure is a common subject that comes up when we discuss setting goals and creating a vision for our life and for our future.
“How can I ever succeed at my job, at blogging, or achieving my dreams when my fears are my biggest obstacle, stopping me in my tracks?”
I have spent a lot of time thinking about this. I have faced many fears in my life, the fear of failing is one of the biggest and most difficult to handle. Yet, if we don’t learn how to get past this fear, we cannot move forward.
Then, there is the fear of success. It is a real thing. What if I achieve my goals? Then what? What if I make a mistake?
I wrote an article about How to Overcome Fear of Failure for FloridaBeachRehab.com where I discuss the feeling of falling into a downward spiral of fear and despair and using your own powerful sense of self-perseverance by reaching out for help and listening to your inner-sweetheart to bring you back up through to the top of the spiral. It is just like climbing to the top of a spiral slide, it isn’t easy, but it is possible.
When you allow your fears to overcome you, that is failure. If you overcome your fear and open new doors finding new pathways to achieve your dreams, that is success.
I encourage you to turn things around. Learn something new, reach out for help, change your direction. Allow your fears to open the door for you. I know you can do it!
Releasing the fear of failure, or any fear, involves believing that you can. Talk yourself through it. Pray. Meditate. Write. Do whatever works. Try new things.
Think Positively, Breathe, and Say:
I am Releasing this fear now
I am Letting this fear melt away now
I am Choosing peace and confidence instead
I am Visualizing a healing light all around me
In this light, the fear melts even more
In this light I am safe and peaceful
I am Safe and Peaceful
