Do You Fear Failures?
Aren’t we all fascinated with success and frightened of failures?
Yes. I have seen people who are stuck in their life, unable to do what they really wish. Most people give up on their dreams, ambitions, and goals in fear of failing.
Do you think it is so easy to be successful? Success does not come from comforts. You have to take risks and sometimes fail many times to become successful.
The path to success varies greatly for different individuals. Some people have to fall many times to gain success in their life. While some others easily succeed without going through failures.
The thing is that none of our life on this earth is similar to any extent. We don’t know what is happening in any of the most successful person’s life. How we interpret their life can go wrong because we are just seeing a version of their life.
We barely know anyone’s path to success. Maybe the one you admire for being the most successful person might have had enough failures in their life.
Everyone’s story is different. And you can’t definitely achieve anything if your fear of failure is bigger than your dreams.
Is Failure A Better Teacher than Success?
Don’t you think you learn quite much in each of your failures? Of course, yes. Here are things what failure does to you:
- Failure makes you rethink.
- It makes you understand whether you have taken the right direction.
- Failure opens more opportunities.
- It makes you re-evaluate yourself and your actions.
- Failure makes you work harder and smarter.
- Failure paves the path to come back with better and strong reasoning skills.
Failure is definitely a good teacher. There is no need to fear failures. It only increases your experience and knowledge.
Why Should You Not Fear Failures?
Robert F. Kennedy once said, “only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.”
How true is this? Do you think we can ever achieve anything if we fear to fail?
Don’t fear failures. Fear of failures shuts the door of opportunities life throws at you every time. And once in life, you will call yourself a coward for not taking up the opportunities.
As children, haven’t we all got up all alone every time we fall during games and started to play again? We never stopped playing anytime because we had fallen once. But, somewhere growing up we lose that innocence and peace of mind.
We fear failures and sometimes are not ready to take up opportunities we get. We find the risk factor in everything and drop the idea to move ahead. Aren’t we losing ourselves there? We have given up on our dreams and ambitions to our fear of failures.
Don’t fear to fall down in life. And also, don’t traumatize your falls. All you need to do is get up from there stronger.
Take risks. You can barely achieve anything from your comfort zone. Get out of your comfort zone and work smart for your dreams.
You may fail many times on your path to success. Find what didn’t work and what worked. Failure only occurs when you take risks in your life, and you are out of your comfort zone.
And to achieve great success, you have to come out of your comfort zone, and may have to fail many times.
Don’t you think life would be pretty boring without any failures? To understand things at its best, to get the true essence of life, I think we have to fail.
Many of the successful people you know, including Steve Jobs, have really traveled a tough path to achieve success in their life.
How To Bounce Back to the Path to Success from a Failure?
Failure is inevitable. You can’t escape from failures. Nobody in this world is completely immune to failures. What really matters is how easily you get back to the path to success.
Here are some tips for getting back to the path to success from failure:
- Analyze your situation.

Failure and success are a part of our life. It is just a phase in everyone’s life. You have to accept it and move ahead. That’s what matters.
