Why fear? And why fear failure?
Fear is a natural emotion. As humans, the tendency to fear is there. People fear failure because of lack of knowledge and understanding of the concepts of fear and failure, and the inability to handle it.
What is Fear? F= False E= Expectation A= Appearing R= Real. “Fear is false expectation appearing real,” but not real after all. Fear is the opposite of faith (believe).
What is Failure? Failure is the opposite of success. There are principles and practices of success and failure. Right knowledge and action will always produce the right result, but wrong knowledge and practice will always lead to failure. You fear because of lack of the right knowledge and action. To overcome the fear of failure, take these three steps:
As an entrepreneur, you have to learn the principles of success and failure. Practice success principles and you’ll succeed. Avoid the principles of failure, you’ll not fail. When you fail, take it as a learning opportunity. Make adjustments where necessary, and do what’s right, you’ll succeed, if you don’t give up. Never quit when the going becomes tough.”Winners never quit, quitters never win.” Keep persevering, hopefully, with time, you’ll succeed.
