03 Sep GROUND ZERO
One of the items on my internal “to-do” list is learn how to fix a car. Now I am a certified computer technician but cars… nope, I don’t think so. My greatest fear is I am afraid of breaking something so I don’t do it or try it at all. Some might say that is failure, and I would agree.
The fear of failure is normally activated or tapped into when we are attempting to do something new or even learn something new. That doesn’t mean that doing something old can’t evoke the fear either. It is really hard to pinpoint it but we all have succumb to the fear of failure at some point or may be currently going through it. I used to experience this fear quite often. It is paralyzing. However a couple of years back I realized this…
YOU ARE ALREADY AT ZERO. YOU ARE ALREADY AT FAILURE.
When you realize that you are already at fail, that fear should dissolve quickly. Technically you are at ground zero whenever you decide to do anything, especially when you haven’t done it before. Once you understand that success is bred from failing, then failing should be an option.
Now I know the phrase “Failure is not an option” but that is not what I just said. The key here is in the “tense” of the word. FAIL, FAILING, FAILURE. Failing is progression. Failing is trying and coming up short. Failing is taking steps towards reaching your goal. Failing turns to failure when you decide that will be the final outcome.
YOU DETERMINE FAILURE
Another caveat of failing is, it turns from frustration to triumph with each step. The thing is you will never experience the joy of failing if you don’t take the first step. If you don’t take that “leap of faith”, you might not ever learn some key things about yourself.
These words and my blog are the results of failing. I had some fear when I made the choice to “put myself out here for the world to read”. However If I hadn’t, I would not have helped those of you who have emailed me to say “thank you for your help”.
YOU ARE ALREADY AT ZERO. TAKE THAT FIRST STEP.
