This morning I woke up feeling enthused AF so I wanted to talk about a fear that I believe we all have in common and how I deal with it in order to keep strong towards my goals. I hope this can help you in some way, too! 😉
Failure has always been ingrained in us as something bad and something to avoid at all costs, but to me, failure is almost something I want to experience so that I can learn what works and what doesn’t in effort to build a strong foundation to reaching my goals in the right way. Trying to avoid this illusion of failure keeps us in this “safe zone” of life, essentially pulling us away from living our best lives because we’re so afraid to fail. We’re so impatient with the process of achieving goals that sometimes we don’t even reach these goals because we 1. don’t want to fail, and 2. want everything to happen overnight, so we just stop because it’s easier to just let life handle us instead of grabbing life by the neck and determining our own destiny. Realistically, most of our growth comes from mistakes that we make, and I don’t know about you but I am trying to be a tall ass flower. I don’t think we’re all really afraid to fail, I think we’re afraid to fail in front of other people, and I think this fear has come about because humanity acts as if we’re all in competition with one another and that if someone fails, they’re deemed incapable and weak.
This quote pretty much sums up the importance of failing to me:
“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.” ~ Colin Powell
If we always stay in the comfort of societal “norms” or diminish our dreams by living lives that we have been shaped to believe to be realistic, how do we expect to be great? Living your dreams comes with taking risks, failing, and getting up and trying again. When we fail, instead of quitting, we should take these mistakes as a learning opportunity, and appreciate them for teaching you something, and get back up with the same courage and persistence to try again in a more intelligent way. I truly believe that anything you set your mind to is achievable through the law of attraction consisting of affirmations, manifestations, and visualization. You also have to genuinely feel these dreams are already lined up for you within the Universe and it’s just a matter of time before you receive them. Living in faith and gratitude everyday for what you already have and for what is to come will help you look at failures as apart of your journey to the end goal. When it comes to others seeing you fail, there’s nothing wrong with that either. Use your failures (that ultimately lead to your success) encourage other people along their journey, too. There will always be haters and naysayers, but at the end of the day, those people are most likely staying stagnant in the same unhappy positions wishing they were you, living your dreams.
I practice the law of attraction daily by following these steps:
- Waking up everyday and saying everything that I am grateful for
- Writing down affirmations and reading over them daily
- Thinking positively throughout the day
- Visualizing my dream life in my head pretty much all day 😀
- Using the Calm app to meditate (You can get Calm for free in the App Store here)
- Reading self-help books
- Believing in myself and taking action to achieve my dreams
I love you guys!
