People give up living to their true potential due to fear and chase security in the job they hate to do.

They choose to live paycheck to paycheck and spend their whole life thinking the riches are for the rarest.

Sometimes when you aim for the stars, you hit the moon. ~ Ian Holloway

Most people don’t even aim at the ceiling of their house and complain why life is unfair to them.

Most people fail not because they aim too high and miss, but because they aim too low and hit. ~ Les Brown

Not taking a risk and giving it a try is worst than failing at something. Failure comes with worthwhile lessons and learning opportunities. It’s not a waste.

But not even trying for something in the first place is a total waste.

People have ideas, opportunities, and plans, but they don’t have the essential thing required for execution: courage.

Their assumptions of the outcome as failure is so intensely spinning in their mind that they can’t get themselves out of the fear of failing.

That should be your first target to overcome.

A Practical Guide to Getting Out of the Fear Of Failing

Your first aim should be to put the fear aside.

How to do that?

Imagine you are doing a 9 to 5 job you don’t like to do.

You want to be free from it, and when someone asks you what will you do after quitting this job, your answer is the same as many people, which is to start a business.

The one thing common about you and the other people, which is why they also haven’t started with their business, is that you both are holding fear of losing your job.

You can overcome fear only by looking at it in the face.

Whatever you are earning from your job, save it, don’t eat pizza for a couple of months. Save as if…
