Once you set out to pursue a big dream, life seems to accelerate everything in your world. There is suddenly a deluge of goals that need to be added to your already packed to-do list–objectives you hope to accomplish–all feel important to your future success.
I’m assuming that the reason you’ve come to this website is that you have a big dream for your future, that you want to occur as well.
Why is it so easy to “see” what you want to happen, yet a much harder task to make a big dream a reality?
What is the hold-up?
Have you caught yourself living life in neutral; too nervous to move forward and do something great? Remaining stuck is a mindset where you shouldn’t want to stay for very long. It’s crucial to approach new opportunities and your personal dream by focusing on how you can succeed, rather than focusing on ways you might fail.
Often you feel the one thing holding you back from confidently pursuing your big dream is the fear of failure.
Well, NO MORE of that! Right?
Let this be the year that you are done with fear-thinking and overanalyzing your potential for failure! I believe fear of failure impacts every person of every age and lifestyle. The possibility of failure is not something that has to stick with you through your life. With every great opportunity that anyone of any age has, there is always a risk and a potential for failure coupled with the opportunity for great success.
I’ve learned that one’s willingness to fail is often a prerequisite for success.
I say, pursue your big dream; do what you love.
Being scared of “what bad thing might happen” won’t get you closer to accomplishing your big dream, it will only keep you right where you are stuck in the scared “wishing” place. You need to embrace your potential “fails” in order to pursue your dreams wholeheartedly. It’s time to let go of the fear-of-failure. Life is just too darn short …
