There are so many things on my to-do list, so many things I hope to accomplish, so many things I want to happen in the future. I’m assuming most of you have hopes and dreams for your future, whether big or small, that you would like to see happen as well.
Why is it so easy to “see” what I want to happen, yet a much harder task to actually make these dreams a reality?
What is the hold up?
I’ve caught myself living life in neutral; too nervous to move forward and do something great; and this is a mindset or lifestyle I don’t want to stay in. Have you ever felt this way? We all need to approaching new opportunities and dreams by focusing why and how we can succeed, rather than focusing on ways or reasons we MIGHT fail.
Often I feel that felt the one thing holding me back from pursuing my dreams confidently is often the fear of failure.
Well, NO MORE!
I am done thinking like this and done overanalyzing the potential of failure. Unfortunately, I think the fear of failure affects everyone of every age and lifestyle. The possibility of failure is not something that just sticks with you when you’re 22 and in college like me. With every great opportunity that anyone of any age has, there is alway a risk and a potential for failure.
I’ve learned from personal experience and from other people’s experiences that a willingness to fail is often a prerequisite for success.
Pursue your dreams. Do what you love.
Being scared of “what might happen” won’t get you closer to your dreams, it will only keep you right where you started. We need to embrace potential “fails” in order to pursue our dreams wholeheartedly. Friend, it’s time to let go of the fear of failure and start living life fearlessly to pursue your dreams.
