Fear of Failure leads to FAILURE

Saturday, May 04, 2019

The dictionary says that fear is: a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid.

It states that FAILURE is: nonperformance of something due, required, or expected: a failure to do what one has promised.

Have you been promising yourself that you were going to lose weight? Exercise more? Eat healthier? Have you held to your promise to yourself? If not, perhaps it's because you have been told before you are going to fail (Again), or you have tried before and failed hopelessly because of lack of whatever (willpower, encouragement, etc).

The bottom line is if you think you are going to fail (fear) than you most likely will (failure)

So...how can you turn it around? What can you do to stop failure?

If you think about it a goal is 5 steps:

Remember when you first started Spark and you were asked to do a collage? How many of you actually did it? Perhaps this can be your goal. Make your collage, make a plan, etc, etc. AND HAVE FAITH THAT IT WILL WORK OUT.
