So do you know anybody that runs some type of business (on or offline) that has really struggled? And through or (maybe) because of their many trials, tribulations, setbacks and challenges etc; they ultimately pulled through.
So right about now you’re probably wondering (or at least) you should be, what if anything, any of this has to do with a (so called) fear of failure? Fair enough and we’ll most certainly get to that in just a second.
But first, let me just state that there is practically no person and or entrepreneur that yo can think of (or one going forward), that will not at some point experience some major financial and or emotional challenges.
And the ones that have experienced massive success,(the type we’re craving to emulate!) You can bet, that they have definitely burned more than their fair share of the midnight oil!
And you best believe they’ve had those private moments when they’ve questioned whether or not they’re worthy or whether or not they deserve the massive success that they’re pursuing! Who hasn’t? Honestly, when the challenges start to become really massive, (and just a little scary!)Who reading this can honestly say they’ve never temporarily had that momentary rush of doubt?
And asked if maybe we’re not partially or completely out of our league?
Here’s Why You Really Would Be So Much Better Off If You Had A Real Fear Of Failure!
It’s hard to be believe that some terribly misguided entrepreneurs actually think (or are led to believe) that simply because they so desperately want or wish to profit, that somehow (miraculously!) they will. (Good luck with that.)
Irregardless of their lack of business skills and or technical abilities etc. And far too many also seem to think (initially) anyway, that they can ride the passion train to long term success and eventual profitability.
Not realizing or coming to grips with the fact that they are more than likely, no where near as prepared as they should be for a dramatic sudden down turn in the local economy. Or for very aggressive (and extremely) well financed brand new major competition!
Or for a major illness to a partner and or a major break up in the ownership of the business etc. The main point being, they simply haven’t taken the time or the necessary steps to succeed in business.
Case in point; have you ever watched the extremely popular reality television show “Kitchen Nightmares!” This show is a prime example of extremely capable men & women who without question, are incredibly gifted chefs, but are totally clueless about exactly”what” it takes financially and emotionally, to run a successful restaurant!
When Failures Not An Option You’re Starting To Get Powerful Close!
Which brings me full circle to my real main point. You’ve often heard it said that some people have a fear of success! While others have a fear of failure.
And the latter is probably totally not true, unfortunately! Here’s why that would be a tremendous blessing, where that phrase really apply to you or someone you know that’s currently struggling in business!
Imagine if your doctor informed you during your last check up, that unless you lose 15 LBS. (or so) within the next year, you’ll be dead! Honestly wouldn’t you do everything conceivable within your power to accomplish that goal? Irregardless of the many obstacles, challenges and setbacks that were placed before you! Bingo!
So you see (my friend!) it would actually be a blessing if you or I really did develop a real fear of failure! Because our dogged determination/ take no prisoners type of attitude, would definitely cause us to persevere! Until we eventually succeeded! Don’t you agree?
