Fearless in the Face of Failure

I am fearless in the face of failure and mistakes.

Say it three times out loud – say it until you believe it. For the most part, self-belief is what allows us to move through challenges and upsets with grace. We believe we will overcome and rise stronger. We will be better, bigger and ultimately achieve our goals.

If we first define the words, it will help when experience setbacks. Mistakes and failure are ways of describing an undesirable outcome; basically not achieving what you want.

“When I have an undesirable outcome, I simply adjust my approach and try again.”

One of the ways we can move through challenges is by adjusting the words we use in our everyday lives. In this case by choosing different words than mistake or failure, we can shift our perspective faster. This empowers us to move through and find the positive in the situation.

“I learn from mistakes and failures and become better in the process.”

When we shift our vocabulary, it becomes easier for us to be fearless in the face of failure and mistakes. What is there to fear? A strategy to try is to keep trying until you find something that works. We will ultimately be successful, eventually, as long as we keep trying.

“I try and try again.”

With a more positive outlook, it goes a long way to helping us maintain our enthusiasm regardless of how many tries it takes to be successful. When we keep our heads up and keep trying when things fail to turn out the way we want them to, then we are drawing on our internal motivation.

It is important to maintain our commitment to success regardless of the setbacks we face along the way. With each setback, we know success is on its way. The old saying of “it takes 100 nos to get to yes” is what we draw upon.

“I am free of fear and concern.”

Each day, repeat the mantra “Today, I feel completely fearless in the face of failure and mistakes”. With having a similar mantra, or self-belief statement then you easily are in a success mindset.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. Why do I fear making mistakes or failing?
  2. What do I think is going to happen?
  3. What would happen if I kept trying new approaches until one worked?
  4. If I lived that way, what would my life look like in 10 years?
  5. What would I try to do if I weren’t afraid of failure?
