Fear of failure can stop you in the tracks of meeting your goals.

You may work hard, you might be talented and you might be a genuinely nice person, but if fear holds you back, your goals will remain beyond the horizon of achievability.

You have to be willing to fail to grow and succeed.

Falling and getting up, brushing yourself off and trying again is a much more rewarding life strategy than never sticking your toe in the water (excuse the mixed metaphors!) Be tenacious and strong in the face of fear.

1. Change Perspective

One of the best tips for facing fear of failure is to completely change your perspective of the term.

Try to think of failure not as something to be scared and ashamed of, but rather as something that can inform and teach you valuable lessons for your future attempts and endeavors.

There isn’t a single person in the world who has been successful at everything the first time around.2

It is all about failing and learning and repeating until you have achieved your goal.

2. Cross Your Boundaries

Make the prospect of failure a little less daunting day by day by doing things to break out of your comfort zone and get you used to the feeling of less than 100% control.

This could be small things like picking a different route to the office to bigger things like finally voicing your disagreement with a colleague at work.2

The benefit is that the more you open yourself up to unknown outcomes, the less scary failure begins to seem.

3. Forgive Yourself

People who are scared of failure tend to be the kind of people that can’t help but beat themselves up at even the slightest mistake or misstep.

To truly become comfortable with the prospect of failure, you need to look deep inside yourself and make a conscious effort not to attack yourself if something goes wrong.

This kind of internal psychological safety blanket can work wonders.2
