So what makes failure so scary? Many people are so scared of failure; because it will make them feel like a loser and unsuccessful if they don't succeed. Failure does not need to be the F word that everyone fears. Fear of failure, is simply the fear of not succeeding and being inadequate in life because of it. But, the real truth behind failure is that it does not mean that we are inadequate or unsuccessful just because we did not succeed at something. Failure at something just means that we need to try harder or make changes before we are able to fully reach that success point we are looking for. So if you gong through life being afraid to fail, you are already telling yourself that you are inadequate and do not have the ability to be successful . Being able to accept failure and learn from it, takes confidence and love for yourself. You must be confident in yourself and love yourself enough to know that if you fail at something you have tried for or worked for, it does not make you only less of the awesome kick ass person that you already are. Failing just simply means that you need to grow and learn more before you can reach the goal you are looking to achieve. Failure makes us stronger, smarter, and more prepared. Without failing many times in my life I would not have the confidence to take the risks that I do to reach for my goals. Risk is just a step you must take to reach success, or you will never get there. When we go through failures, we learn to look at and do things differently, we strengthen our mindsets, and learn what it takes to be what we truly want to become. Failure sculpts us in to what we need to be to reach success. Without failure, no happy person or successful person would be where they are today. If you want to reach for the things you desire and deserve, you have to be willing to let your butt hit the pavement a few times before you able to stand on it. Stop being afraid to fail and instead take a risk towards success. Every failure is one step closer to where you want to be. So keep going, strengthen your mindset, stop being afraid to fail, instead learn how to bandage yourself up from the fall and keep moving on towards your goal regardless of what happens.
