Stop Being Afraid Of Your Failures

We hate to fail, don't we? Things go poorly and we beat ourselves up and assume everyone around us is laughing at our stumbles. Failure isn't the problem, the problem is when we assume our setbacks are who we are and we want to give up. We quit.

Here are the facts:

  1. Everyone makes mistakes.
  2. We learn more from our failures than from our successes.
  3. The judgement you feel for your mistakes is more about you and hardly anything to do with others.
  4. Judgment of our failures speaks more about someone's insecurities than it does about our actual failures.
When a child is first learning to walk, they fall down more times than the number of steps they take. If they stop trying after the first fall they would never be able to walk or run. Next time you fail, think of it as a learning opportunity that just gets you closer to figuring it out.
