Fear of failure is very common amongst ambitious men because we all want to achieve something extraordinary, but at the same time we know risks are obviously involved. This happens in life, business and love, including international relationships, so let’s discuss how to get rid of fear of failure now.
Not taking a risk is the biggest risk of all.
If you start a business, you might fail. But if you don’t start the business, the failure rate is 100%. End of story.
You will break from the fear of failure when the fear of not making it happen is louder.
There are two options: 1) not making it happen; 2) failure – Which option would you choose?
I think a wise woman like you would understand that you’d better at least try it first.
Even if you fail, the world quickly moves on anyway.
I’m not going to sugarcoat this – most businesses don’t succeed, so failure is commonplace in this world. But if you’ve tried your best, you won’t regret a thing. What are you going to lose?
How to stay positive during tough times:
During tough times, it’s very, very important to stay positive& here is how:
Dwell on past happiness.I know this sounds a bit bizarre, but please let me explain.Gurus tell you not to dwell on your past, yet in truth, they are just trying to say you shouldn’t dwell on your past sadness/mistakes….As a matter of fact, there are a lot of happy things that happened in the past in your life if you think about it. So, why not dwell on those? 😉Remember that fantastic trip in Australia? Look at those photos now and feel those feelings again!
Look at what is going well in your life right now.Even though times are tough now, you can still look at what’s going well for you in life. Perhaps you are healthy. Maybe you have a good family. Don’t take any of these for granted. Be genuinely grateful!
Make plans for your future.If you stay at home during the pandemic, this is the perfect time to plan for your future. Write down three goals that you want to achieve in the next 6 months!
The value of really listening in an international relationship:
Listening skills are underrated because most books about communication teach you how to be a great conversationalist instead of how to listen carefully and effectively.
Without good listening skills, your conversational skills will not work.I know some people who are very good at having pleasant conversations – they are charismatic, charming and attractive. But sadly, when listening skills are poor, their conversational skills don’t work.
You can only be well-calibrated if you are able to listen to other people effectively.
People tell you who they are, but are you listening?Don Draper famously said, “People tell you who they are, but we ignore it, because we want them to be who we want them to be.” This is absolutely, definitely profound.
When you don’t listen to people carefully, you can’t even figure out who they really are.
There is a difference between listening to someone and hearing someone.Esther Perel once said, “In a difficult marriage, one person actually tells the other person what they want, but the other person only hears that without trulylistening to their spouse.”
“In other words, simply hearing something doesn’t mean you’ve understood that person. You have to proactively listen to that individual and then you will fully understand what they want.”
