  • Want to overcome your fear of failure? Try these five tips

January 28, 2019

Have you ever been so afraid at failing at something that you ended up not trying at all? Do you fear that people will judge you if you fail? Whatever your definition of failure is, you can overcome your fears.

In this article, I will share some tips on how you can eliminate your fears and focus on the success that you desire.

Write a Business Plan

I know it is risky to spend all your resources at something with a blurry outcome. Creating a detailed plan with your goals and how you plan to achieve them will put you on track and boost your confidence.

Writing is a great way to stop worrying and start working. Not sure how this works? Read my post about how writing can help boost your confidence.

Get rid of the negative mindset

Many people are afraid of failing because they occupy their minds with worst case scenarios. However, if you take a moment to visualize the success that you desire and build on your positive mindset, things are going to become a lot easier.

It helps when you write down the things you are afraid of and plan on ways to eliminate your fears. For example, if you are afraid of starting your blog, start by building on skills that can get you comfortable. Sign up for courses to build your writing skills or join a writer’s club. Whichever route you take, you are preparing to succeed.

Positive thinking is a powerful way to build confidence and eliminate the feelings of low self-esteem. If you still don’t know how to convert your negative thoughts to positive ones, check my article here to see a few tips.

Start small

If you are afraid of failing, start by setting smaller goals. Do not just focus on your end goal, but the tiny next steps which eventually lead to your end goal. For example, if your long term goal is to be a blogger and you are worried about your writing skills, you can start by commenting on blog posts and posting frequently on your social media accounts. Hire an editor, get feedback, take the next step and keep going.

Setting short term goals will help build your confidence, keep you focused and reduce anxiety related to the thoughts of reaching your final goal.

View failure as a challenge, not a threat

If failure looks like a threat to you, then you will never want to face it. But if you view failure as a challenge, you are more likely to be able to pull through. For example, take a moment to think about your past challenges; how did you overcome them?

A challenge mindset will eliminate your fears and redirect your mindset to positive thinking. This mindset will get you in the mood to chase your goals.

Start

Yes, start anyways. Confront your fears. Do the things that frighten you. Take one step, then another till you get comfortable. Action builds courage. Tell yourself that “you will pull through”, “this phase will pass”. Your confidence level will grow and you will get moving.

The fear of failing can prevent us from doing the things we really would love to try out. But we need to also be aware that we are missing out on great opportunities if we don’t make a move.
