Fear of Failure: Unique Ways to Get Out of that Rut


What scares you?- Write it down. See it in the flesh. Before JR and I started this company, we wrote down some of our money-related fears. We were so used to being worried about money and knew we had to change our mindsets. After writing down and seeing our fear of failure with money on paper, we realized our fear was easy to tackle. We took one fear down at a time. I know you may think it's most important to forget about your fears and move on. Sometimes it's better to see them for what they really are.

It's okay to have fears- Accept that being scared it a part of life. Even though it might seem like you're the only person out there with irrational fears, that just isn't true. It's okay to be scared from time to time. The question is, is that fear of failure going to control your entire life?

Learn about your fear- What scares you? Is it spiders or do you have a fear of failure? Either way, make your fear a form of fascination. Once you do this,  you can interact with your fears in a way that's positive rather than negative, and you can release yourself from that rut! I hope this works for you.
