Fear of failure was something that kept me from living life. However, fear of failure prevents us from evolving becoming who we are meant to be.
Nobody wants to be made the fool. In high school, I was known as a shy person. In fact, I would tell people that I am shy at first until you get to know me. However, I was actually intimidated and was fearful to meet new people.
I was such a quiet individual. I allowed my fears to mute my personality.
I do not like labels of introvert or extrovert, because labels limit people. A phrase I tend to say to myself almost daily is other people’s opinions are none of my business. The phrase has taught me not to assume what somebody else is thinking.
Improving my self-image or what I thought about myself also empowered me to be comfortable with who I am. Once, I liked me then it became easier to try and experience new things. So below is the process to get out of your shell and create some growth in your life.
- Form a healthy perspective of you. You do not need to be Narcissistic or arrogant, but love being around you. I did this through meditation as well as with affirmations. Over time I came to believe the positive things I said about myself.
- Create small daily goals that lead to the big goal that you have. For example, I started this blog as a way to motivate myself to write. Now I have published a book and created a YouTube Channel. The Link is below. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMlQLSzdzecGj-Jt0UIIcpw?view_as=subscriber
- Learn to motivate yourself. If you are going to maximize your life then you’ll need to learn how to motivate you. Your body is the servant of your mind, not the other way around.
Don’t be afraid to fail, be afraid to not try. Growth can only happen when we take a risk. So take a chance on yourself, I bet you’ll surprise you.
