Fear is a habit; so is self-pity, defeat, anxiety, despair, hopelessness and resignation. You can eliminate all of these negative habits with two simple resolves: I can! and I will!, Napoleon Hill.
The only thing we have to fear is fear itself, Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Do you have a fear of making wrong decisions, trying new things, starting new romantic relationships, etc.? Do you think that you are not good enough for that degree or post? Do you only try things in your comfort zone where you are completely sure that you will succeed? If that’s the case, you have a fear of failure, but what can you do about it?
- Think positively. Negative results are common outcomes. These experiences are important and invaluable: They help us to learn and grow, they give us experience.
Experience is what you get when you don’t get what you want, Dan Stanford.
- What is the worst thing that could happen to you? Remember previous experiences and learn from them. Sometimes failure will be disastrous, but on other occasions may not be so bad after all, not so frightening, not as terrible as you may have awaited. You know, if failure does happen, who really cares? Perhaps, you will become bigger, stronger, wiser, more humble and modest, a better person.
- Redefine success as “learning as much, loving as much, sharing as much, and enjoying as much, and for as long as we possibly can,” Dr. Myron Wentz. We only live once, so follow your dreams, enjoy the ride, live life to the fullest, and focus on the positive because there is not much to lose anyway. Choose happiness above all else and move on, Anawim, #justtothepoint.
- Have a plan B, a contingency plan in place if everything goes absolutely wrong.
Now, think hard: “What would you do if you were not afraid?,” Spencer Johnson, Who Moved My Cheese. Sometimes you must embrace the unknown and just go for it. The best way to permanently fail at something is to not make the attempt. Commit yourself to success with persistence and determination.
