A lot of people talk about the fear of failure as if it were a bad thing. But I don’t see it that way. Because fear can be an awesome motivator. And failure is when you stop. Not when you stumble.
Claudia, a client of mine, wasn’t sure what to expect when she first started working with me. Because, as she put it, she was “always too busy thinking about just getting things done both with my business and personal life.” And so she was “unable to cope with other things to put into my schedule.”
She also said she was “afraid of losing what I already had going on.”
But once we started digging in, she said, “I was enlightened in ways that I did not imagine.” And she added, “everything that Ronda taught me gave me a different perspective.” So, now she’s “better able to manage my time to fit the activities in that mean the most to grow my business and my personal development.”
I love it when I see someone go from a fearful, apprehensive perspective to a one of confidence. Like when Claudia said, “I look forward to being even more of an asset to my business but even more to myself!”
Fear of failure can take you to the dark side. But only if you let it.
And by dark side I mean when you let that fear drive your thoughts and actions. Like when you think you have to be perfect. Or you believe your mistakes might cause someone stress. Or that it’s all your fault.
If you have symptoms like shame, low self-confidence, negative self-talk, or always seeking approval, you’ve gone to the dark side of the fear of failure.
But, like I said, your fear can (and should) be a motivator. And you can do by following the advice of a friend of mine. He says, “Speak your words on the positive side of the equation.”
He explains it like this. You can either say, “I don’t wanna fail.” OR “I wanna succeed.”
See how one sounds weak and the other sounds strong?
When you know you don’t wanna fail, so you talk about success, you discover solutions.
Because solutions drive success.
And when that happens, you build better and faster. That’s why I developed my RondaReady System years ago. To help business owners and entrepreneurs plug into a proven system so they could build their businesses (and pursue their dreams) much better and faster.
I’ve seen business owners plug into the RondaReady System and go from 5 figures incomes to 6 figures. And then go from 6 figures businesses to 7 figures.
But those were the business owners who understand how crucial it is to systemize your business. If that’s you, and you’re tired of trying to figure out to get going, then it’s time to get RondaReady. Especially if you’d rather invest in your business than swim in details up to your nose. Your handy link is below.
