Dear Vee, How do I get over the fear of failing?

Well, first make sure you remind yourself that everyone fears failure. No one wants to fail at anything they’re doing, it’s not the best feeling. Now, take a moment to imagine yourself in a situation you’re afraid to fail in, and allow yourself to fail. (This is only visualization, relax.) Alright so you feel yourself failing right? Doesn’t feel too good?

Now imagine all the ways to get around this situation so you can succeed. Imagining yet? Success always feels better than failure but you have to do everything in your absolute power to see yourself succeeding. It is all a mind game if you believe your going to fail, chances are you will because you’ve put yourself in that mind frame. But start seeing yourself succeeding, start thinking of all the ways you can do things, then you will begin to do everything in your power to make it happen because you now have so many routes to take.

It’s also important to remember failure is apart of learning. I know we hate to hear that but take a second to remember the times you may have failed, then think about what you learned from that failure. I guarantee you won’t make the same mistake twice. The next time you find yourself in a situation when you failed, I guarantee you’ll know exactly what to do and you’ll do it even better because you know how to approach it.
