Facing fear is one of the most important things you can do. Some people have a fear of failure and others a fear of success. It may seem weird but neither one is a good fear. You would think the fear of failure could be a good thing but it’s not. Particularly if the fear of failure keeps you from accomplishing anything.
For myself, I have a huge fear of failure but I am good at facing that fear and overcoming it. I don’t let my fear of failure cause me to procrastinate or get me off track. I use the fear to make sure I’m doing my absolute best at all times because I know if I don’t do my best I will fail. That scares me. I’m not afraid of trying at all, just failing.
I started a business when I was married to my first wife. The business became successful and we were getting ready to make some huge money when my wife started acting weird. She wanted us to stay small because she was comfortable there. She feared what success might bring and did every little thing she could to make sure we didn’t grow any bigger.
I’m sure you can see the problem. I have a fear of failure and she had an even bigger fear of success. Finally I couldn’t stand anymore of her irrational fear and we got a divorce. She’d rather be divorced and alone rather than successful and well off.
Facing fear and overcoming fear is very important. People even have a fear of fear. I’m not sure I understand that but it is a legitimate fear. People fear change more than anything else and fight that change with fear laden emotions. Yet most know everything changes and that change is inevitable. They fear what they don’t know or understand.
The good news is you don’t have to pay a shrink big bucks to get over your fear. You can live a life free of fear by learning to face your fears. If you like audio better here’s a fear of failure audio for you at this link Facing Fear Of Failure Audio
