Posts Tagged ‘success and failure’

Have you ever been so afraid of failing at something that you decided not to do it at all?

Have you ever felt that you’ve subconsciously undermined your own efforts, simply because you’ve been trying to avoid a failure on an even greater scale?

I certainly can answer yes to both those questions! How about you?

Without even realising, we can find the fear of failing stops us in our tracks, causing us to do nothing. When we let that happen we stop ourselves from being able to move our life forward, meaning we can miss out on opportunities to learn and grow.

We mustn’t let our fear of failure stop us from moving forward. We can choose to be afraid, or we can choose not to be. Which do you choose?

Are you looking for simple ways to encourage your heart and nourish your soul?

In the last while I’ve given you some ideas which will hopefully inspire you to implement them in your own life, and over the coming weeks I’ll share some others with you.

So here’s today’s suggestion:

Do something outside your comfort zone

I’m sure we all have things which we’re not comfortable doing because they put us in a situation where we feel vulnerable or exposed. However imagine conquering your fears face on, and actually putting yourself in the situation which you fear.

Do you fail or do you surprise yourself at how well you coped when out of your comfort zone?

I suspect many of us would find that when we put ourselves out of our comfort zone, we survived…the world didn’t fall apart, we didn’t fall into a big black hole, nobody made fun of us, and nobody died! Imagine that, our worst fears didn’t come true when we when out of our comfort zone!

You’ll find such a great sense of achievement when you survive being outside your comfort zone, and that’ll make your day, so go on step out of your comfort zone today!
