Everyone is afraid of something.
Perhaps even success.
Fear is a powerful thing. It has the potential to completely cripple opportunity. Paralyse progress. Destroy dreams.
Do I experience fear? Do I doubt myself?
Every fucking day.
I’ve had failed businesses. Failed relationships. Failed personal endeavours. In fact, Ive most definitely failed at many more opportunities than succeeded.
Do I let fear and self-doubt stand in front of me?
Because Ive come to learn that failure is a necessary part of progress. You dont learn when you win… you learn when you lose. When you fuck up. When you fail.
Without failure, there simply cannot be progress.
So dont let the fear of failure or self-doubt stop you from trying.
Instead, wrestle that fear into pushing you from behind rather than standing in front of you.
Ive failed so many times now that I’m legitimately more afraid of the regret associated with not trying and missing opportunities than I am of failing itself.
So if youre reading this and currently battling the fear of failure or experiencing self-doubt, know this; we all go through it. No matter how successful you are or may become, there is always going to be an internal psychological wrestling match between your dreams and your fears.
So pick that SOB up and drop on it on its fucking head.
Accept failure. Everyone fails at something.
But do not accept not trying.
