THE FEAR OF FAILURE HOLDS ME BACK

fear of failureThere is something peaceful about staying still and unchanging.

The fear of change can be too discouraging.

The fear of failure is what holds us back.

I know for me personally I have always being too frightened to get out of my comfort zone. I know deep down if I pushed myself harder, I could achieve great things. I’m not saying my life is bad, on the contrary my life is brilliant and I do work hard, I’ve traveled the world, loved, I have a beautiful family, but my career choices have always been difficult.

I have always wondered what if?

I’ve always wanted to be a writer, a novelist, but my self-confidence doubts my abilities. I’m beginning to see now that I am my own worst enemy, when the people around me believe in my capabilities, they aren’t saying it to humour me, they say it because they believe in me.

I’ve just got to learn to believe in myself.
