I came across something about fear of failure today that I want to share and I think has some valuable advice for most people. I am aware that there are famous people we are all familiar with through the media in many different vocations and careers who have experienced the ups and downs of the climb to the success they have achieved in their life and in their career. We see business coaches and mentors who can help us in business, inspire us and advise us but at the end of all their talk and help, it is up to us as individuals to create and develop our own success. We meet people throughout our lives who inspire us and teach us in their own unique special way. As we go along, we definitely fear the outcome but if we don't make an effort to take action to help ourselves, we will never know if we can achieve our goals towards the success we want. Here's what I read: "Don’t fear failure, or you’ll never experience the life you dream of. You’ll need to overcome problems your whole life long. Denying that is the main cause of your failure. See your failures as stepping stones is your progress. Only then will you find solutions deep inside. You are the only one capable of helping yourself!"
