You should not have fear if you want to succeed. Fear is what disables people from achieving their goals. People fear failing to accomplish things, and so do not even start.
But what is failure? Failure is part of success. All successful people have failed in some ways during the course of their life in their search for success. They did not become who they are without some mistakes along the way. It took them time to get to where they are today.
Think about people such as Henry Ford, Conrad Hilton, Richard Branson, and Suze Orman, to name a few. They did not become successful or get rich overnight. They failed at least once, or experienced difficulties at some point. Some have made tons of mistakes along the way. They failed, but they did not quit. They started all over again with different ideas.
Dr. Ed Feyereisen, author of the book “Living Life with No Regrets” said that there are no mistakes or failures in our life, but only learning opportunities. When we repeat mistakes, others may call us stupid. People who fail to learn from the consequences of their mistakes will repeat them. The lesson: learn from your mistakes and do something different next time.
Successful entrepreneurs learn from their mistakes. When they try something and fail, they do not repeat that mistake again. They try something new until they succeed. From now on, take off the coat of fear, and remember that failure is part of success. Mistakes are just learning opportunities.
