Fear of Failure

I used to have this feeling. I was afraid of failing. I thought that failures are losers but when I learned that we never succeed in anything in life without failing over and over, everything has changed for me.

Do you remember the last time you wanted to do something but there was fear holding you back?

Why do we have it in the first place and is it really helping us in our life?

Well sometimes it’s helping but sometimes it isn’t. So I invite you to read my post and reflect with me, I am sure that by the end of this blog, you will have more confidence to face your fears and move forward.

Why Fear Exists?

As you know, our mind aka our supercomputer that we have between our ears is very powerful but has some limitations that I will discuss with you later on.

The mind does everything to hold us from hurting ourselves, otherwise, you can imagine people jumping from the bridges and diving into oceans – doing some crazy stuff. Thanks god, it’s not the case.

As I said the mind has some limitations.

One of them is putting fear in front of us and holding us from taking a path that we love. Let’s say, you want to start taking some steps towards your financial independence, so first of all you decided to replace your job.

Whenever you have this idea, I am sure that the mind will start making the process very scary.

Why? Well because it’s an unknown path, it’s uncomfortable and risky.

Sometimes we start making excuses in order to avoid taking a scary step, here are some of my personal favorite.

“I can’t do it because I don’t have good circumstances” or “I am not lucky enough” or “It’s not for me” or “I will think about it later”…

Fear Of The Unknown

Let’s face it, we all have some kind of fear.

The most common one I found, is the fear of unknown.

When we don’t know what is going to happen, we feel uncertain which become scary. Normally, we want to be sure about what is coming next. For example, we tend to feel secure if we have a job that pays our bills instead of taking few risks, becoming entrepreneurs and enjoying a life on our own terms.

We are afraid of uncertainty.

Fear Of Quitting The Job I hate

One of the biggest hurdles in my life was to quit the job I hated. I was a software engineer well paid BUT miserable.

I didn’t have life-work balance.

I was working all the time. When I am not at work, I was thinking about it. It became the reason to my unhappiness and un-fulfillment. I wanted to quit but couldn’t.

Why?

Well, I thought only about the negative side of quitting. I thought that if I quit I will not survive, if I quit I can’t replace my job, if I quit I have no skills or knowledge to start something new, on my own.

Sorry for the word, but this is complete bullshit…

Yes, I wanted to be an entrepreneur very badly. But didn’t quite know how to start or what to do…

How I Overcame My Fear

I can tell you from my personal experience that quitting your job is not an easy decision to take especially if you have responsibilities on your shoulder AND you have no other option to make a living.

So one day I started reflecting. I wrote the worst case scenarios that might happen if I quit and how to survive.

It turned out to be a mission very possible and exciting, at least for me.

The worst case scenario, was me quitting my job and have no money left in my bank account to survive.

Then I thought about the solutions that I can have, well, I can do several things to survive, like bike delivery, bartender…

The idea I am trying to deliver here is that no matter how big the fear is, we need to overcome it. Firstly, by imagining the worst case scenario and secondly, by finding adequate solutions.

What I Learned From Fear

Fear is a feeling that will stay with us forever whether we like it or not. But we have the power to control it. We need to turn it as our ally and not our enemy.

Whenever I fear something I know that I need to deal with it.

First of all, I acknowledge it, then I face it and beat it.

Every time you win a battle with your internal fear, you are not only growing but definitely moving forward in your life towards your dreams and goals.

Fear Of Starting An Online Business

No it’s risky…

It’s too hard, I can’t do it…

I am too old…

I don’t have the knowledge and the skills…

I hear what might be going in some of the people’s heads.

Well, I had exactly the same thoughts.

Before I started building my own online business, I used to listen to all these people speaking about their lifestyle and the kind of freedom they have and I said:

It’s too good to be true…

Sometimes we are conditioned to think in a certain way. Unfortunately, society has brainwashed us and convinced us to work hard and trade our time for money.

So I wanted to think out of the box this time and I gave the online business thing a second thought and said, well, if everything is now on the internet, if artificial intelligence started kicking in, if systems can work for us 24/7 and 365 days, if robots started replacing the humans jobs I said “let me give it a try”.

And I am so happy that I did.

It wasn’t a piece of cake at the beginning. I couldn’t find what I wanted. I spent long time searching on the internet.

I was afraid of liars, cheaters and bad people, but I decided to face this fear and overcome it.

One day I got introduced to 2 of the top freedom entrepreneurs in the world, they taught me how freedom is possible when we learn the necessary skills.

I also knew that this path needs commitment and dedication, but it all started with me beating my fear and starting to watch a 7 day video training.

I learned how to start my own online business from scratch with NO prior experience or technical knowledge.

Why did I trust these guys? Because, they have mentored thousands of people from all over the world and are willing to share with me everything I need to become a successful freedom and digital entrepreneur.

Now the question is, do you want to start the same journey towards more freedom and flexibility in your life?

If you answered yes, I believe that you are ready.
