"Atychiphobia" is the fear of failure which eventually holds you back so strongly that you refuse to do anything unless your success is guaranteed. And there are no guarantees in life. The fear is so powerful it stops your from doing the things that can move your forward to achieve our goals.
Don’t Let Your Fear of Failure Keep You from Seeing Your Ultimate Success
Everybody has a fear of something, but one of the worst fears that can derail your chances of success is the fear of failure. The most important thing for any person to understand is that in order to reach higher levels of success and happiness, you will experience failure.
If you allow fear of failure to rule your life, your chances of success greatly diminish. Therefore, it's imperative to overcome this fear anytime you are presented with something new and challenging. You’ll thank yourself for it!
Failure is a natural part of life. Everybody makes mistakes. The mistakes you make shape your future. In fact, failure is the groundwork for success. You cannot be successful without making incorrect decisions or wading through problems that arise. It’s your failures that make success even sweeter when you attain it. Without some type of struggle, you don’t really gain anything from success.
The Cure is to Learn to Use Fear of Failure to Drive You To Success
You don’t have to see fear as a bad thing. You can use fear to propel you to your ultimate goal. Far too often, people use their fear to stop them from getting what they want. They use fear as an excuse. It’s this kind of attitude that keeps people from being successful in whatever venture they were striving for.
People are prone to making bad decisions, but they also worry about looking foolish and the consequences that can result from their decision. They don’t see failure as a challenge to do better – to try something else.
People are human beings – you will fail! You will not always make the right decision, even if it feels right. Use that fear of failure; use your mistakes to guide you into the next step in life. The wisdom you gain from the failure you have experienced is what helps you to get better. Use that knowledge to better yourself.
Persistence and Patience after Failures Are Keys to Success
Failures are going to happen along the path to success. The best things you can be is persistent and patient. Do not give up the moment you experience a setback. Do your know anyone who has never failed or made a mistake. Of course not! There is no living without making mistakes. According to statistics, the majority of entrepreneurs have failed in their first business venture, succeeding finally by the third try. It’s obvious that in order to have success, there must be failure too.
You have to understand what happened and learn from it to try again. What makes you different from others is how fast you stop feeling defeated and work towards your success.
What Failure Teaches You
Each time you experience failure, your fear of it becomes less and less. This decrease in fear enables you to take on greater challenges. Each time you fail, you become wiser, better and more powerful. Failure lets you know that what you’re doing isn’t working and you’d be better off trying something else. Mistakes are your chances to learn something – allow yourself to see the mistake another way.
Failure helps you to grow personally. You don’t grow without experiencing the good and bad things in life. Put yourself out in the world to experience what it has to offer. Remember, mistakes will happen. Try, try and try again – don’t allow the fear of failure to hinder you from the happiness you rightly deserve. See them as life’s adventures that will eventually end in success.
