Hello out there! Some time ago, a friend asked if I would meet with a group of women to encourage them to start a part-time business. Evidently my friend felt that the women had the ability to succeed, but were doubting their ability to do so.
So, what are the actions that you have postponed because you are afraid of failure?
Whether it is starting or expanding your own business, improving your education, moving to another type of housing, striving for a promotion or starting out as a single parent, it is important that you move forward with determination, discipline and a positive attitude.
People, who succeed, have often felt like giving up, but through determination, discipline and perseverance they achieved their goals. The following tips will assist, if ever you find yourself being afraid to crash:
- Say to yourself, “Yes I can. Failure is not an option”;
- Develop a plan of action;
- Keep remembering that you deserve the best that life has to offer;
- Focus on your strengths;
- Ask for assistance
- And thank God for your blessings and share them with others
