How to cure your fear of failure

How to overcome your fear of failure

Trent Nelson:

The fear of failure is nothing more than an irrational panic over the… unknown variables that [you] equate to impending doom. …And disappears completely when you focus on reasonable outcomes.

“When you find yourself distracted by impending failures, it almost always means you have a distorted view of yourself, and what role you play in your own business….

“Falling flat on your face is an essential a part of the job, and without it you’re bound to stunt your growth. …By rejecting the notion that you could-possibly fu– up, you’re restricting your access to one of the most sought-after resources on the planet: Hindsight….

“The best way to overcome failure is to see it for what it really is: A necessary speedbump on the way to success.”

Suzie Eller:

Every story is unique and each story — including yours — is important to God. And this is our promise: Brokenness does not have to be the final chapter….

“It changes your question from, ‘What’s wrong with me?’ to ‘What miracle does God want to perform in me?'”
