Failure is nothing more than FEAR! Fear is nothing more than a GHOST! Fear of failure is on of the six ghosts of fear that Napoleon Hill refers to in his book (unabridged version) “Think and Grow Rich”. At one point in time, like myself, we experience fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, death and loss. But we do not have to FEAR any of these. We just have to retrain our brains, our self conscious minds to think differently.
On Michael Dlouhy’s Wednesday Master Mind calls (The 30 Day Mental Cleanse), he has referred to fear as one of the six “ghosts”. These ghosts and in particular the ghost of FEAR can do a lot to destroy a man’s dreams.
The end result is to be able to put fear aside and live to your full potential. Will we really ever be able to get rid of FEAR? Not likely, however, there are steps and habits to be taken to create a plan of action that will keep it at a safe distance in a controllable fashion. Do not allow fear to keep you from taking the necessary action steps toward your dreams and your goals…your current situation will not change.
On the 30 Day Mental cleanse call hosted by Mentoring for Free, I have learned to change the way I view failure. I do not see fear of failure as a negative, but rather a positive situation. I was responding to my own environmental belief system. I learned that failure as a child was something to be looked down upon, something undesirable. When you learn to view fear in a different light you can look at it this way…Thomas Edison is the first to tell us that he did not fail 10,000 times, he learned 10,000 ways how not to create a light bulb. When at first I do not succeed…try, try, try again. Failure is determination in disguise.
It will be easy to change your view of failure when you see that it is tied to emotions. It is born within all of us to protect the very life that God has given us. People who have been severally abused often fragment and have many sides of self. It is a response that the brain creates to protect life. It has been referred to as Multiple Personality Disorder or Dissociative Disorder.
Failure IS tied to our emotions, guaranteed. Take action before the defense mechanism kicks in and prevents you from taking action to dispel the ghost of fear. Not realizing that failure is tied to your emotions will allow your natural tendency of avoiding risk (failure) to get in the way of you being able to step forward and take action.
This is truly about letting go of past beliefs and what has been holding you back from achieving a life that you are passionate about; a life of success and true meaning.
One last thought is to us bravery to take action. To be able to put fear at a safe distance you will have to use this attribute. Going through this process may at first feel overwhelming and uncomfortable, but you will get used to it and feel more sure of yourself the more you practice putting off the fear of failure.
