Fear of Failing

Fear of failing is understandable – it doesn’t feel good.

Except that the only way to succeed is to learn from failures.

No one wins all the time – some do better than others but not by that much.

  • If you’re not failing, you’re not succeeding – you’re playing it safe to protect your feelings.
  • Times at bat matter – the more swings you take, the more chances you get to connect.
  • Everyone has a number – the number of times it takes to succeed.

Replace the fear of failing with the fear of not trying hard enough because the more lessons learned, the more success is earned.
