Fear Of Failure - How To Move Forward When You Are Scared

Fear Of Failure is a big obstacle, but you can overcome it to move forward. Read this post to learn how to overcome the Fear Of Failurefear-of-failure-kamil-migas-blog

Fear of failure is one of the biggest fears for Entrepreneurs. When we think about failure, we get paralyzed and we start to ask ourselves “what if my great idea won’t work?“. There are patterns and reasons why we are so afraid to fail, but if you want to succeed in your business and life you need to learn how to overcome this fear so you could move forward. In today’s post, I want to share some thoughts about failure and I will give you some tips on how to move forward even if you are scared.

What Causes The Fear

We don’t want to feel disappointed and we don’t want people to think that we can’t do anything. We are scared to move forward when we get a doubt about our actions and ideas. There could be many things that trigger our emotions and causes fear, but most of the times it comes from our past.

When you were young I am sure you failed at some things. The failure itself probably didn’t cause a big enough pain to paralyze you for the rest of your life, but the comments of others about your failure was painful enough to do it.

3 Powerful Fear Of Failure Quotes

My favorite quote about failure is “Giving up is the only sure way to fail” by Gena Showalter. I agree with this quote so much because I experienced it many times. I will explain what is a failure later in this post, but I just want to ask you to Not Quit whatever you are doing. Because if you quit then you automatically fail and this failure sticks with you to the rest of your life.

Other great quotes are “Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever.” by Lance Armstrong & “The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing” by Henry Ford. You may fail a couple of times but as long as you try you are not a failure. I know it’s not comfortable failing and it causes a pain, but if you quit then this pain will last forever!

How To Get Over Failure

It’s not easy to go over failure, but it’s possible. You can do it when you realize 1 important thing. Each time you fail you learn something. So if you are struggling with overcoming failure your mindset is in totally wrong place.

When are you succeeding at something you celebrate right? You make a party for your friends, you go out for a nice dinner with your spouse or someone who is very close to you. This is important because we should celebrate every small success. What about failure? In my opinion, you should celebrate each failure you make. Why? Because most of the people get depressed after they fail and that doesn’t help them to grow. I am no telling you to be happy because you couldn’t do something, I am talking here about celebrating that small tiny thing you learned from your failure.

Some people say that they are just failures and they don’t learn anything, but this is not true. Each time you fail you learn something. It could be a life or business changing a thing or it could be some small thing that you can’t even see right now. But each time you fail at something you learn a new thing, consciously or subconsciously but you still learn.

As mentioned before, the only way when you really fail is when you stop trying. Now you gotta make a choice. Are you going to stop trying to reach your goals and dreams because a Joe said that it won’t work? Are you going to stop working on your dreams because you couldn’t handle the pressure? or are you going to proceed and no matter how many time you fail, you will be working on your dreams?

Remember, Leaders always find a way. No matter how long they have to look for the perfect way to success, they always find a way.

Overcome the fear of failure to move toward your dreams. No matter how scared you are, believe in yourself and soon or later you will be able to make it happen!

Be Unstoppable! Follow Your Dreams!

    Hello, Friend!
    Thank you for reading my post!
    I totally understand how you feel. It’s not easy to get up after your business failed, but as I mentioned in the post, it’s just a part of learning something new. I think you know some of the reasons of why your business failed, so next time try to avoid same mistakes or try harder to overcome some of the obstacles. I wanted to give you some suggestion. Stop saying that you are “Not Happy” because it doesn’t help you at all. I get your frustration and I know you want to quit your job, but instead of saying (negative) “I am not happy” say I want a change, I know my worth so I am going to create a better lifestyle for myself and for people who are close to me.

    Try to stay away from negative self-talk and you will be closer to your goals :) Feel free to read the posts below. I believe you can get some ideas and motivation to move toward your goals. Have an awesome day my Friend!

  3. Hi Kamil,

    Love this! Fear is a bunch of little bitty energy waves in the mind ;) Failure, is opportunity, colored by ego to be something bad. Not true. I figure, we get opportunity after opportunity daily to grow, learn, expand, help others, and to have fun. Life can never turn into failure when you attract opportunities like flies to poop LOL. Because really, when you detach more and more from outcomes, failures cease to exist in your life. Thanks for sharing!

    Hey, Ryan! Thanks for the comment! Yes, it’s exactly what you say. Opportunity after opportunity To Grow, but many people don’t see it this way. Instead of focusing on what they can learn from a “challenge” they are focusing on the negative side of the challenge. Well it’s natural to get worried or even scared, but the difference between people who make it happen and those who quit is that people (leaders) keep pushing and keep moving forward even if they are scared. Even if they have doubt they are going after their goals. Sadly, opportunity knocks to everyone but some people are too scared to open the door.

    Thanks again for stopping by and commenting on my post! You are awesome!
