Have you a Fear of Failure?

Have you a fear of Failure?  Is the fear of failure holding you back and preventing you from achieving your goals?   Well this super little video  by the great Brian Tracy talks about overcoming your fears so they no longer prevent you from moving forward in your life. 

The fact is that the fear of failure alone can be very destructive; it can prevent you from taking the necessary steps and actions to bring your dreams into reality.   Brian suggests that you take some time out to analyze your fears, by taking a piece of paper and writing out everything that you are afraid of.  By doing this it will help you to determine which of your fears is holding you back and preventing you from moving forward toward the completion of your goals. 

Once you have pin pointed the fear, Brian suggests you ask yourself three questions;

1.       How does this fear hold you back in your life?

2.       How does this fear help you or how has it helped you in the past?

3.       What would be your reward for eliminating this fear completely?

Brian goes on to say that once you have pinpointed your fear, you have to face it, move toward it, and confront it.  When you do this on a regular basis, the courage that you seek will follow and when this happens you will be able to set bigger goals and bigger dreams.

This is a super little exercise, and I have used a lot of Brian’s suggestions to great benefit in the past, to push myself out of my comfort zone and to take action on my goals and dreams.  For example I used to be afraid of cold calling in my first sales job, and this would generate anxiety which would make me delay going out to meet new customers. 

However, once I took Brian’s advice and I realized this fear was not serving me but it was in fact preventing me from achieving all I was capable of, I began to face up to my fear.  I made myself cold call on more and more new customers.  I now knew that if I faced my fear over and over the courage I wanted would come to me.  And what do you think happened?  You guessed it, my courage came to me, and I am glad to say that I haven’t looked back.  So if you have a fear that is holding you back, try Brian’s little exercise and see if helps you as much as his teachings have helped me over the years.  That’s all for now, and just remember to face your fear and keep moving forward🙂

To your success,

Roma Catherine
