1. Figure out where you fear of failure comes from
The fear of failure comes from a subconscious limiting belief. By figuring out what belief is underneath this fear, you can start changing how you perceive failure.
2. Change how you perceive failure.
The only fact that you may have not reached your goals, or things didn’t work out as planned, doesn’t mean that you’ve failed. In my opinion, the only way in which you can fail is by not trying.
So many people limit themselves because of the fear of failure. People say on their death bed that what they fear the most in live is. So change how you see failure.
3. There is no such things as failure, only feedback
In NLP we use the presupposition ‘there is no such thing as failure, only feedback’. If you start seeing things not working out as feedback, this can help you to change how you see failure. It’s then only new information that you can use to try it again and adjust your method.
4. Give yourself some grace
Give yourself the space to try new things and ‘fail’. It’s okay if things don’t work out how you initially planned them. Remember its feedback, so take the information, and try in again.
5. Do it scared
Don’t let your fear of failure stop you from trying new things! Even if you’re scared, do them anyways, and use these tips to support you. Show up as the person you want to be, and have fun as you’re doing it!
