Is Fear of Failure stopping you ? #Prerna #BlogchatterA2Z
So many desires are still lying unfulfilled . Right from the small wishes like learning to drive , to swim , learning classical music, experiencing adventure sports , to bigger desires of leaving my job , start my own venture and go on a world tour , will these goals be ever achieved ?
May be all of us have some unfulfilled desires . I am sure you also have such a list in your mind . Do you call them desires or goals ? Are desires and goals different ?
My brain says – Desires can be anything your mind wants to achieve but Goals are something one works towards .. If you have some desires , then shouldn’t you make them your goals and start working towards them ?
Is something stopping you to make desires as your goals ? What is stopping you to work towards your desires ? Is it some kind of fear ?
Is it Fear of Failure ?
You want to learn to sing or dance – that is your desire but if you are not working in any way for this , it remains just a desire . Why don’t you just start to learn singing or dancing ? What is stopping you ? Do you fear that people would laugh at you if you are not able to do it well ? Or your own mind has become slave of your age ?
You want to run your own business but are not able to leave your job ? Is your secure job and fixed salary killing your dreams ? What is stopping you actually ? I don’t think you doubt your abilities ,then is it the fear of failure that the business may bring ?
To achieve something you have to overcome fear .
The best way to overcome fear is to face it .
Start facing your fears -one by one , start taking risks , convert your desires to little achievable goals and work towards them . Life is very small , you can’t bear the regrets all your life about the efforts you didn’t put or the risks you didn’t take or the fears you didn’t face .
Just don’t allow fear of failure conquer your thoughts or suppress your desires . You have to step out of your sphere of security , take risks ,overcome your fears and fulfill your wishes . Don’t worry . Even if you fail , you would learn much during the journey . Plus you would not have regrets afterwards that you didn’t give it a try .
So bump up and fight against Fear of Failure .
Here is a hindi poem on ‘ Fear of Failure ‘ – my own composition.
|चाह रखते हो सफलता की तो जोखिम से क्यूँ डरते हो ?
उड़ना चाहते हो आसमाँ में पर घने बादलों से डरते हो !
हुनर , प्रतिभा , क्षमता तो असीम है तुम में
तो क्यूँ पहला कदम उठाने से डरते हो ?
अरे डरते रहोगे तो खुल के जिओगे कब ? ……….
