The Spark Inside Me

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

I mentioned in an earlier post that I have finished reading emoticon. I am now going to go back and reread each individual section again, this time with a fine-toothed comb. I'm also going to blog about it (and highlight in my book key points, but you can't see that over the computer).

What is holding me back?

I think the thing holding me back the most is fear of failure. Like everyone else, I enjoy success. I don't like to fail at things. It bothers me. I'm a perfectionist. I like to do things right, and to do them well.

In order to be successful at my SparkJourney, I need to let go of this fear. I think that I can honestly say that I am learning to do just this! It's taking some time, but my downward spirals are now leading to upward successes. No more one step forward, two steps back. Now it's two steps forward, and one step back.

    Hey, at least you got yours read! I haven't even started reading my copy yet. I was trying to finish up a different book first. I only have a couple chapters left, so hopefully I can get that done and get on the Spark book soon!!!

    We will not let each other fail!!!

    The fear of failure is huge for me also. But yet here we are taking one step at a time and with a support group to help us instead of trying to do this all on our own.

    Thank you for this. I think we all have fear of failure. how can we fail if we don't try? To me NOT trying is the failure!
