Why everyone is afraid to fail? Why everyone has a fear of failure? Why is everyone afraid to try new things? Why is everyone afraid to follow their dreams? Maybe because the rate of failure is 50%. But so is the rate of success! You have a 50% chance of success as well. Then why is everyone afraid to try new things? Why are we afraid of failing?
Name me a person, just one person who became successful without failing! Don’t search too hard you will not find anyone.
Everyone that you see as your ideal had a past. They have earned the success that you see now. They have failed a thousand times before getting their desired results. They have worked on the same thing for a number of times in order to achieve the desired result. They have worked on their dreams every day. They have failed a dozen times and yet their not giving up attitude is the reason they have achieved their dream. It is the reason they are living their dream.
Do not fear failure. Failure teaches you, it helps you become tough, it helps you to finally cross the path that didn’t work for you, it helps you to find an ideal path to achieve your dream.
What you should actually fear is regret. The regret of not doing what you loved. The regret of not following your dream. The regret of not standing up for yourself. Regret is what you should actually be afraid of.
Follow your dream today. Yes! You will fail a million times but those failures will guide you, it will show you the path towards success. Failure helps you learn from your mistakes. And every mistake is like a stair that leads you one step closer to your dream.
It is hard that is why you have to do it, otherwise everyone would have done it.
The thing is everyone wants to be successful, everyone wants to live their dream. But then why are some people are successful and not everyone? Everyone has a dream, we all can do whatever it takes to fulfill it. Then why only a handful of people are successful?
Because those successful people never gave up on their dreams, they have worked day and night on a single thing. They tried giving their 100% to it and they got their result too.
If you want to achieve your dream, if you want to live your dream then you have to give it your everything. You have to wake up every morning and start from where you left. You have to fail a million times in order to understand more. You have to learn from your past mistakes and make sure you never repeat them. And most important, have a single goal at once. You cannot be an actor, entrepreneur, singer, dancer, magician, an athlete all at once. Yes, you can be everything that you want but you have to start with one thing at a time. You want to be an actor, dancer, entrepreneur? Start by being an actor. Give it your 100% and then move on to the next goal.
If you want to achieve your dream, be ready to fail. Make sure that those failures come as a positive thing to your goal. Take it slow. Take one step at a time.
You can the moon by taking one step at a time. Just remember to take one at a time because if you took multiple at a time, you might fall and that fall might hurt you so deep that you will never rise again. And you will lose not because you cannot do it, you will lose because you are too afraid to hurt yourself once again.
Every baby step counts if you are giving you 100% to it.
You want to be a Writer? Go write something and it doesn’t matter that you wrote 10 lines or 10 paragraphs or 10 pages. What matters the most is that you started.
You want to be an Entrepreneur? Start collecting some business ideas, look up to other entrepreneurs, start investing, take whatever baby step you might take! Just do it.
And be proud of yourself when you take that baby step because at least you started. Many people are too afraid to fail, that they might not even start.
Start working towards your dreams now and don’t give a damn about failure. You know when you will be old, all you will be left with is your story. The story of your life. When you will be 70-75 years old, you will be sitting by yourself and at that moment you will either be proud of yourself. Proud because you had the courage to start and you were not afraid to fail. Or all you will be left with is regret. The regret because you never started because you were too afraid to fail. And trust me at that moment you don’t want to have any regrets in your life.
You have only one life then why are you wasting by not chasing your dream? YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE is the motto of our generation then why are you not living it now when you have the time? You have one life and you have to give your 100% to it. You will never know the end result if you will never start.
ISRO would have never reached to Mars if they were afraid of failure.
NASA would have never sent an astronaut to the moon if they were afraid of failure.
Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne would have never created APPLE if they were too afraid to fail.
Thee Soviets would have never launched the first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1, into space if they were afraid to fail.
Bill Gates would never have created Microsoft if he was afraid to fail.
The thing is everyone is so afraid to fail that they won’t even start but you know the irony about it? If you will never try it, you have already failed by default.
Everyone is different, everyone’s journey is different. If you will never start, you will never know where you will end up. For this very reason, start now. Take your baby step now. Because tomorrow never comes. And no one has ever seen tomorrow. Start living in the Present.
I have failed a dozen times. I have not delivered what my audience wanted from me. But it only helped me learn more about my audience and their demands. And at the end of the day, all that matters is that I Actually Started Blogging. Many of you who are reading this might not even start.
So, it’s your choice whether or not you want to start and crush the fear of failure or not. Because what I know for sure is, you don’t want to be a person who in their last days might have regret of not even trying.
