Fear of Failure

Not even single human being has escaped from the feeling of fear. Fear consumes us at any age and in any profession. In different parts of life we face different types of fear, means in childhood I was afraid of Dark, I still have fear of water, I nervous before every presentations. It is not about being fearless it is about acting in spite of fear. I have come so far in my life, because whenever fear was in my way I looked my fears in the eye.
                Since childhood I have faced many Fears with my Faith. There are two meanings of F-E-A-R : 1. Forger Everything And Run or 2. Face Everything And Run. There is one Fear which we have to face in our life that is “FEAR OF FAILURE”. It is really important to overcome “Fear of Failure” because “Success is on the other of Fear”.
                When I decided to quit my job to start my own business at that time there was fear in my mind and everyone was telling me to think twice before my biggest decision but my Dad told me that “Your Largest Fear Carries Your Greatest Growth”. It was really tough phase of my life where I has fear of failure for really long time. Even after I made my choice of starting business still fear continued for around 1 year.

I had many doubts before starting my business –
1.       I have selected correct domain or not?
2.       I will find the right contact and suppliers?
3.       Can I live on the Profit Made by Business?
4.       Will people visit my website?
5.       Will people buy from my website?
6.       I can afford marketing or not?
7.       Will I get a proper logistic or not?

I did not know answers of any of the above questions when I started working for my business. I feel this happens whenever you decide to do something completely different from your own comfort zone. Many people back out form such a decisions due to fear of not knowing but I say we should “Replace fear of unknown with curiosity“.
                Like any other normal human being I was born with fear but I am glad that my faith was stronger than my fear. Once someone said to me a life lived in fear is a life half lived. I never wanted to live a life with regrets so whenever there was a choice in front of me to face fear or run away I always chose to face it. Remember life does not get better by Chance, it gets better by Change and The key to Change is TO LET GO FEAR.
                To be a creative blogger we must lose our fear of being wrong!!
