"Fear of failure must never be a reason not to try something."
Still, there it is: we stick around where it is safe. It's called cognitive resonance.
Is fear of failure holding you back?
Get over it, because once you are willing to face your fears, you will head in the direction of your dreams.
History is full of the people who pushed past their failures to finally achieve their goals.
Think Thomas Edison - or Tesla, for that matter. They had so many "failures" on their way to inventing the lightbulb or other great machines that help us today everyday. However, they reframed "failures" and considered them part the path that finally led them to success.
Most recently, Dyana Nyad achieved her goal of swimming between Florida and Cuba after 4 failed attempts. Through all those "failures," she didn't allow anything to stop her from pursuing her dream. She made mistakes and failed along the journey but never gave up. Instead, Diana followed her unwavering passion and desire to be her best self which led her to accomplish her dream.
Remember, by moving past your fear of failure and naming your goal, you are on the path to achieving your dream!
