How To Overcome The Fear Of Failure

The fear of failure can stop you from even trying.  No one likes to fail, but if you are going to accomplish something that you’ve never done before, the reality is that you may fail a few times (probably many times) before you ultimately succeed.  Don’t label this as failure, but as courageously learning important lessons. In fact, Colin Powell once wrote that learning from your failures is one of the most important keys to success. If the fear of failure is holding you back, the following quotes can help you to overcome this potential roadblock to your success:


“Success doesn’t mean the absence of failure; it means the attainment of ultimate objectives.  It means winning the war, not every battle.”              -Edwin Bliss


“If you’re not failing now and again, it’s a sign you’re playing it safe.”                     -Woody Allen


“Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.”      -Robert F. Kennedy


“Failure is the opportunity to begin again—this time more intelligently.”                 -Henry Ford


“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career.  I’ve lost almost 300 games.  Twenty-six times, I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed.  I’ve failed over and over again in my life.  And that is why I succeed.”      -Michael Jordan


“I can accept failure, but I can’t accept not trying.”          -Michael Jordan


“The person who succeeds is not the one who holds back, fearing failure, nor the one who never fails…but rather the one who moves on in spite of failure.  Far better to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory or defeat.”                       -Teddy Roosevelt
