Overcoming Fear of Failure As An Entrepreneur
Failure is a SCARY F word – so scary that many people decide not to follow their dreams because they are so scared of it.
In the entrepreneur circle, there is definitely the chance of failure, the chance to “get it wrong” (even though I believe you can’t ever get it wrong)
It seems heightened for us entrepreneurs because we are doing it ourselves, because we often are going against the grain + are putting ourselves out there.
I always tell myself: With high risk comes high rewards.
I’m all for comfort and playing it safe to a certain degree, but there comes a point where you have to get over your fear of failure and just go for it.
The truth is, we are all going to fail, many times.
If it’s not in business, it may be in relationships, business, partnerships + on.
Every single human on this planet will fail, repeatedly, and probably fail again.
So why do we make this a bigger deal than it is? So you fail, so what? What’s the worst that can happen if your business doesn’t take off right now?
Failure is part of the human experience, and it’s not going away.
Making PEACE with failure will ironically open up the doors for success.
If you’re an aspiring entrepreneur or are in business and fear failing, remember that you can’t really fail at the end of the day.
You’re always learning and growing, in spite of “failure”.
You learn the most from failure, what works and what to improve.
You’re also in this for the LONG run, so one failure today can signify success a few years from now.
The business and life that you want are waiting for you…if you’re willing to overcome your fear of failure.
