I wanted to find some great lessons from failure to share with you this week. Most people will avoid this subject, as they have a great fear that they will fail. This week I want to give you five tips to learn from failures in your life and business.
In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.
Did you ever notice that those people who never seem to find success are usually the ones who have a great fear of failure? They want to be successful but are never willing to take the risks to achieve that success. When I think of those times I stopped or let someone give me an opinion that stopped me from taking a risk, usually it was my fear of failure that held me back.
In all my years as an entrepreneur, I must say that the toughest thing to learn was that I needed to take risks. What it takes to achieve success is often outside of my comfort zone but until I am willing to get uncomfortable and take a chance of falling on my face, success will be out of reach.
The great thing about the internet today is you can research so many things to find out what someone else has done and this is a great place to start as you are looking for things to learn to help you overcome your fear. If you want to have success you must get over that fear of failure. What will you do this week to overcome your fear of failure?
