How to deal with the inner feelings of failure
There are a lot of people who refuse to go for anything because of their fear of failure. For those who are afraid of failure, it’s not that uncommon, but in a way it is silly. You’ll learn so much from your failures, than your easy successes. If you don’t allow yourself to have the chance to shine, then how will you ever feel whole and accomplished? You’ll need to consider that there are many ridiculous fears to have and this is just one of them. You’ll want to allow yourself to have a running chance, rather than a dead-end possibility. Dealing with failure in a way shows your character, resilience, the depth of your ability to trust in divine providence.
First, you’ll need to take your time and clear the air. Allow all of your feelings to just fade away by validating your own thoughts and feelings, don’t pretend they don’t exist, they do. When you validate a feeling or a thought, you basically acknowledge the meaning behind it so that you have a deep understanding of your situation. You’ll want to write down all of your personal feelings, because when you say something or write it down, you will notice that you instantly feel better. You feel better simply because you feel that your feelings or thoughts have been acknowledged. This is on some level a mind over mater thing, and a clear matter of faith, even if the storm lasts a while. Of course, you could always stalk about your feelings with someone and have them validate your feelings through understanding.
You also will want to let go of detrimental frustrations and fears. Basically, you will want to consider that there are many experiences to be had and you simply need to get over the struggles and obstacles in order to find your time to shine. Keep in mind that when you struggle with tasks or goals that there is an instant reality check done. Instead of freaking out and allowing the challenge to get the best of you, you may want to consider laughing in the face of danger (or frustrations). This will make you a stronger person.
There is a time for everything. You have to understand that there is a time for you to be upset and then there are times where you need to take the experience as a life lesson and move forward, that discernment is important in life. Simply you’ll find that your negative feelings will begin to overtake yourself. You’ll notice that there are so many feelings that possibly could be bottled up. Maybe you feel that you have let yourself down or others, but you have to take every lemon and turn it into lemonade. If you keep yourself positive, and encouragement, even if you have to listen to and recite positive affirmations, scripture morning noon and night, do it. Then you’ll be able to show others what you really are about and eventually, you’ll feel more like a success.
Another though to keep in mind is that you may be putting too much pressure on yourself. You may want to take it easy and back down from the difficult challenges and work yourself up from the small obstacles to the major challenges. When you take life a step at a time you’ll be able to overcome more than you think. With every success that you have, you’ll become more confident. With the confidence you’ll be able to overcome more of your fears, issues, and challenges.
You’ll also want to do a quick reality check. You may feel like a failure or a fake because you go for the small challenges in life and then blow up the positive rewards of the obstacle. A lot of people will try to stay in the limelight for some of the easy challenges, just because they want to appear to be more successful then they really are. If you do a quick reality check, then you’ll be able to focus more on yourself and the things that make you happy. Also, you’ll also be able to evaluate if the challenges are too easy or too hard. Basically, you need a good challenge, but not something that seems impossible.
