Fear of Failure

What’s up Everyone? As always, I hope you are doing well and having grand life experiences.

 Frustration is something I live with on a daily basis. I thought to make it in this world during this time in history was going to be a lot easier than it has been. I find my main problem has been staying consistent. I’m working on it. It’s been a constant problem in trying to grow my audience. In the past there have been so many things I’ve started, but stopped because I lost interest in them. 

Like I’ve said in so many blogs before, if there is something you want to do, work towards it everyday until you’ve reached that goal. I find that to be easier said than done. I try to follow my own advice, but many times my emotions get in the way of my success. This is never something I count on happening, it just does. But the good thing is, I’m making strides to change that. I’m tired of my emotions setting me up for failure. 

Once I heard this girl say, “What you’re doing right now is what you’ll be doing in the next 2 to 3 years from now. So what that means is; If you have a crappy job now and you want to be your own boss, but you’re not doing anything to create that reality; don’t be surprised if all you have is that crappy job that pays you minimum wage. Remember in order to reap any benefit you have to put in work. The harder and more you work towards your goal, the bigger the pay off.   

I’m sure this is something that many of us know; but we’re just not ready to take on the responsibility of creating our own reality. This usually happens because we are afraid of failing. I know I am. That might be the real reason why it’s hard for me to be consistent; because I’m so afraid that I’ll continue to put in maximum effort and never be good enough to make a career out f this. One thing I’ve learned though is that you have to throw caution to the wind and  do what you want to do anyway. Learn to do it because it feels good. I know that’s why I write.

 If it makes you feel good, no one should be able to tell you anything. Remember, just because some don’t like it enough to help you grow, there will be others that will because they believe in you and what you stand for.

What I have learned a long the way is failure is something you can’t get away from. You try to do everything to the best of your ability and sometimes it’s still just not enough. What you have to realize is failure is many times a matter of opinion. People set up loops and hurdles for us to jump through. Sometimes we fall short of their expectations, but as long as you tried and gave it all you had, that’s all that really matters.

I don’t know where it came from, but I just got inspired to write about failing. Something I seem to do a lot  of. Don’t take that as me downing myself because I’m not. I’m just saying I, like a lot of other people have seen failure and have been affected by it. To be completely honest it affects me greatly because I feel that everything I ever do should be to the best of my ability, scratch that to the best of anyone’s ability. At times I know I can be hard on myself; I guess that’s just the Virgo in me. But seriously we try to hold ourselves to these standards that just aren’t realistic, most times. Like they say, ‘When you fall down get up and try again’. We are always encouraged to try because the story never should end with failing.

If you’re like me and you want to find your way to becoming your own boss; there are going to be many times when you’re going to fail. All you can do is dust yourself off and go back at it again.

What I had to learn and still learning is, my opinion of myself should rank higher than anyone else’s of me and if I fail it’s okay. The upside is I’m trying and that’s all that matters. Sure you may fail over and over again. But if you really believe in what you’re doing it won’t matter, because if you try long enough and don’t let failure intimidate or deter you, eventually that freedom and sense of accomplishment will be your reward for not giving up.

Know you were put here for a reason, and if things aren’t working out, doesn’t mean it’s going to always be that way. Sometimes we have to jump those hurdles to get to the life we want and know we deserve.

As always……

NOT MAKING IT

Image result for trying but not succeedingNot Making It- That is my biggest fear. I’m going through this life with so many things in my head I want to get out, but fear paralyzes me ever time. I have thoughts daily about the things I could do if given the chance. You know what else I have thoughts about? Not making it, and loosing everything, including the things I have now. I know it’s not a good thing to live in fear, but like I said before, it paralyzes me every time I think of the risks that come with making it, or at least trying too.

 

 

 

Image result for trying but not succeedingDespite my fears I’m going to keep pressing on until something comes from the hard work and daydreams I have daily of that life I want so desperately. That’s all anyone can do, is put their self out there and hope someone will give them the chance to become something better than what they are.

Learn from me; give yourself the chance to learn what you want to do with this life. Always live for yourself, because when it’s all said and done there is no one you can blame your unhappiness on but yourself. That’s why listening to what others tell you to do with your life doesn’t serve you, because no one but you knows what you’re capable of; and what will make YOU happy.

 

Live a happy, full, free life. Connect with many and love the one you're with.Have a Beautiful day!!!!.jpg
