It’s difficult to listen to your positive thoughts, when all you can focus on the thoughts which you need to forget about or simply ignore. Don’t think that being perfect is important, a person who has multiple flaws is truly the person who is perfect. There are multiple sides to a story, so before you make up “your truth”, it would be better to ask around and clear your head with certain assumptions made by you. When you over think you push yourself in a corner and confine yourself in space where you just pity yourself, where you don’t try to work it out and push yourself to work harder.
When you learn that failing is normal, it is a part and parcel of life and you can do nothing about it except believe in yourself. It is normal to fail, it is okay to not know everything in life, you don’t have to be a know it all to get by in life. Failing is nothing to be shy or embarrassed of, when you fail you understand your weak points and you know what you need to work on. It is better if schools and colleges normalize the term failure so, no kid feels inferior or superior.
When you work at your own pace you feel relaxed, and a little stress free. We get better results when we don’t push ourselves hard, to work in a fast pace environment where pressure is truly high. This may harm a person’s ability to think straight and focus on want they originally planned on doing. Working at your own pace has more perks than most people realize. You feel the comfort when work at your own pace, which is needed for a person to receive better results.
Get out of your shell of fear, don’t hide cause its not going do to you any favors. When fight such irrational fears, you feel confident and when you are confident then you can see yourself doing things which you were afraid of doing the I the first place and then you think of failure. But to reach the level of failure you need to give something a try and if without trying you over think about failure then it’s honestly pathetic and something you should be ashamed of. So, in short get out of your comfort zone give it a shot and then cry, don’t cry before even trying.
Believe in yourself and your abilities, know that you are unique in your own different way. Have faith in yourself and everything will work out for better is not best, don’t obsess over perfection when you have your flaws. You only make things difficult for your self when you don’t trust yourself and trust more of what others say. Keep expectations for improvement and not for others to be there for you, and this is what motivates you to work on your self for better. Hence, believe that even if you fail, you fail for a reason, and if not then you know that it’s something that you didn’t work when you had the chance.
Thinking positive is very important in the situation where you fear failing. Fear of failing may trigger something which may be harmful. So, think positive or talk it all out with someone if needed.
