What Would You Do If You Could Not Fail?
I was laying in bed last night, trying to sleep and thinking about all the things I want to get done in my life. Not exactly the calmest way to lull myself to sleep! :) But, I do think it’s always to nice to consider what I would do if I knew I could not fail.
The fear of failure gets in the way of reaching my goals. Which is SO silly because living my life in reaction to fear is the fastest way to get nothing productive accomplished.
My all time favorite quote (and I say it all the time!) is, "Get out of your own way!"
I think it’s important to know what aspects of your personality gets in the way of your own goals. As I said, my biggest obstacle is FEAR. I get scared of change, and I focus too much of the HUGE MOUNTAIN I have to climb to change myself.
Another quote I love is, "Obstacles are the things we see when we take our eyes off our goals." To deal with my fear, I try to tackle my goals bit by bit, checking off accomplishments as I go instead of focusing too hard on the BIG goal.
What holds you back from your goals? How do you manage it?
I guess it’s sort of fear for me too. It’s so hard for me to just believe in myself sometimes, and that leads to fear of failure!
I like the way you handle it though, little by little. 🙂 I’ll try believing that I can do little things, and all of the little things will eventually accumulate towards a bigger goal!
That’s a pretty uplifting thought to start the day, I think. 😉
