Why are we all afraid of failure?
Everyone has at least a little part of them that is afraid of failure. Perhaps fear isn’t exactly the correct way to describe it but no one enjoys failing. When we fail, something didn’t go right. We may have a had a plan of action and hoped for a certain result but then did not accomplish what we expected. That feeling is one of the worst feelings in the world and none of us wants to feel that way.
To Fail does not mean you’re a failure.
Of course, no one likes to fail. But failing does not make us failures. It doesn’t have to be the end all of happiness. When we fail, we are trying. As long as we are trying then we are doing. That’s all we can possibly do…is try. Trying puts our energies to good use.
If we begin to feel useless, then our souls will begin to feel crushed. Living with purpose helps us fight the terrible feelings failure weights us down with and that’s a good thing. You see, failure is often part of the process and path leading to success. My chiropractor always says there is no process that does not take time. As with anything, the journey to success also takes time and you may encounter many obstacles along the way.
Should we live in fear of failure?
The short answer to this question is no. We should not live in fear of failure because it such an important part of our lives. Failure allows us to learn and grow from the things that go wrong. Therefore, it is important to live with audacity and the freedom to explore important avenues in your life. Don’t worry so much about what might go wrong and, instead, learn to focus on what could go right. Even a failure can be a good thing sometimes so live life to it’s fullest and don’t afraid of losing every so often.
