Are You Afraid to Make Mistakes

Life throws you a few surprises along the way, and sometimes, you get to encounter things that totally discourage you. You wish you were mentally tough so that you’re up for anything. But your fear for the unknown is what stops you from pursuing your dreams more. Usually, though, this is only an indication of an even bigger fear.

People don’t like failing and would do anything just to avoid it! Sure you want to discover something so new and fresh that you leave people in awe, but you also continually ask yourself ‘what if,’ and that stops you from doing anything more.

Life is a game of chance. You need to roll the dice and gamble on fate every so often, but what would set you apart from the winners is the attitude you’ll have once you’ve put yourself out there. You simply become too afraid and will settle for mediocrity simply because you do not want to be humiliated.

You accept defeat and convince yourself that you weren’t born with that skill. You should keep in mind that while negative thoughts create gloom, the energy radiated by having a positive attitude is reflected in your actions.

This very same notion applies to your professional life. Some of you go to work, do your job, and basically do everything on schedule. You may not exactly jump for joy at the thought of going to work but you continue.

You crave for more but you are also comfortable doing what you’re familiar with. You have other dreams but keep them in the back burner because you don’t know if you have the ability and talent for it.

If you do decide to pursue your dreams and do what you are most passionate about, you fear that you aren’t good enough and that you may end up feeling humiliated. Your life can become disappointing with this kind of attitude, and you definitely have to pursue your innermost desires to have a chance at happiness.

If you fear failure, know that there are many out there who dread the thought of losing. However, it is important to note that this fear can do more than keep you from being successful. It holds you back from living the life you so deserve.

Often times, this form of terror develops over a period of time, often triggered by sad memories. Because you failed in the past, you know how it felt when people laughed at you when you made a blunder.

In reality, you are good enough. You may not be talented in some areas, but surely there is something you excel in. You need to improve your self esteem and realize that life is all about experimenting.

If you fail, then maybe you need to take a look at the process and see what went wrong. Every good scientist knows that they have to come up with a good hypothesis before they test it. People who keep trying despite their hundreds of failures will triumph a lot sooner than those who don’t try at all.

To overcome fear, you need to take baby steps but be brave enough to give everything a shot. Those who give up will be those who will live their lives with great regret.
