If you are letting fear prevent you from trying something knew, you will get stuck in life. In order to grow in life personally, we have to keep learning. By letting fear get in your way, you will never know what’s right for you and what isn’t. In fact you’ll just be able to do what you always were able to do up to now, in short you’ll stay the same. But in order to reach your goal, you have to keep moving and change yourself. You either learn or win, but you never lose. You only lose when you don’t learn from your experience. In the process of learning you’ll find out what works out best for you and adjust your steps during your journey. If you don’t fail you’ll never know which step is the wrong one and which one is the right one.
As seen earlier, in the entrepreneurial world, one learns by failing. But one more interesting thing happens, you get closer to your goal. In the previews section we learned, that we can adjust our steps by failing. As matter of fact failure is a guide that shows us the way and helps us to adjust the direction in which we go. This means failure is an success optimizer. The more you optimize your direction, the clearer will be the way, that you have to strike. Now the only thing left to do is to run toward your goal and embrace it.
When you fail in life, often you find out who your real friends are. Most people only stay with you because of your success, they want to get a taste of it trough you. But when that shine fades and your environment gets dark, eventually you’ll find yourself walking alone in the dark. People who want you to succeed, won’t leave you alone in that stage. They will go along and endure that situation with you. You’ll probably find even more people like you along the way and you will rise together, by lifting each others.
Failure isn’t bad at all, it’s part of success and also your greatest teacher. Don’t be discouraged because it’s a bitter pill, learn from it instead and you’ll begin to see results.
