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 ?

Think Upon

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 .

Motivational thoughts on overcoming 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 ? ……….
