Taking One Small Step
by Jim Donovan
I have this crazy idea about failure...
Failure simply teaches you how NOT to do something.
When you look at it closely, it is truly nothing more than this. Failure is simply a great teacher.
Learning to overcome this fear and live in your true purpose is sure-fire way to positively transform your entire life.
But what can you do right now to overcome the fear of failing?
Here is another exercise I give to my students...maybe it will be helpful for you too..
I'd like you to identify one thing that you know you want in your life very much.
Something that the fear of failing is holding you back from doing or having.
1. Write out what the fear is.
2. Tell me about one small step that you could do that would move you closer to what you want.
3. Take this small step.
4. Write about your experience.
