It’s the negative people who have the negative bank accounts. Success requires that you be positive and persistent every day. For a lot of entrepreneurs this can be a real struggle. The first thing for anybody to achieve great success is that they must be able to abandon the fear of failure and recondition their brain as to what failure means. Successful entrepreneurs embrace failure because it’s a sign of moving forward. They believe failure allows them to make new distinctions and recognize the next steps that are needed to be done differently to achieve their goals. The more you fail the closer you are to your goal. Remember this – if you are not achieving great failure, then you are not doing enough.
Great success is only achieved by taking action, taking calculated risk, becoming more of who you are and desire to become. It requires jumping out of your comfort zone daily. When you are about to leave your comfort zone (it will feel like you are standing on the edge of a steep cliff) you will have that pit in your stomach, nervous energy/fear, because you are challenging yourself, making a new decision to change your path and destiny and there are no guarantees in life.
But you must learn to embrace (the pit in the stomach) this uncomfortable feeling. Once you start moving out of your comfort zone, the pit in your stomach (fear) will soon turn to excitement and unstoppable self-confidence. Take the chance, expand your horizons, your life will change immensely. If you don’t live on the edge you can’t see the wonderful view of life!!
It has been said “the quality of your life is in direct proportion to the amount of uncertainty you can comfortably deal with” This is really powerful! On a daily basis you must go outside of your comfort zone and stretch yourself, your beliefs, your action and results. To do this you must overcome the often debilitating fear of failure and rejection. You can’t just face your fears, you have to embrace your fears and rip them apart. You have to do what you fear in order to have the most amazing life, living to your true potential.
So from now on, live on the edge and do what is uncomfortable. Start doing what you fear, make that call, meet that person, take that action that makes you scared, muck it up and learn from mistakes. Doing this, you will grow immensely; you will become more, achieve more and become who you want to be.
Get excited for rejection and get excited to fail. High Five failure, because it is those that fail forward that achieve true success in life. When you fail, your life is actually changing for the better even if it does not seem or feel that way at the moment! Dream BIG and start taking small imperfect actions today! “Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go” T.S. Elliot
You must work through the pain of failure, because the pain will eventually go away! But if you quit working towards your goals and a miraculous life, the pain will be there forever. Success comes form never giving up. Time and time again, it has been shown that the people who succeed are those who abandon the fear of failure and never give up.
