In this article, we will be going over how to overcome fear of failure and rejection. This is very common among people because it’s just the way that it is. It really stems down to your self-image but as well as your past failures in life. By being able to learn how to think correctly and analyze yourself from the inner world you will actually be able to overcome this challenge easily.
Failure and rejection are all really just a part of an inner game, not an outer game. Most of us think that we have to impress others on the outside world when in reality we really just need to learn to impress ourselves and push ourselves to the limits. With that being said let’s jump on in and get started.
5 Ways On How To Overcome Fear Of Failure And Rejection:
1). Love Yourself Don’t Fear Failure:
Be proud of who you are as a personal individual. Most of us are raised to believe that we are our bodies when in reality we are actually spiritual beings living in physical bodies.
When I say love yourself I don’t mean it from a conceited point of view, I mean it from a place of understanding of your true worth.
The only way you’ll be able to understand how magnificent you are is by really understanding that you have infinite potential and that you always have been and always will be.
The only limits you place upon yourself are those from your thoughts. So if you think that you’re going to fail and you’re going to be rejected and that thought haunts you constantly, then that’s what you’re going to experience in your life. Remember you are, a part of God.
That means you have the qualities of God. Just because you’ve had past failures does not mean that you’re meant to be a failure the rest of your life, everybody fails. But really what you’re experiencing is just a temporary setback, failure is only to those who quit and don’t pursue their goals anymore.
2). Write Down Your Problem:
I would recommend you write down your failures and your past rejections. Right as many of them as you’ve had on the paper.
This is going to be uncomfortable, but that way you’re getting out all this negative energy from your subconscious mind. But you writing this out will actually relieve stress and you will improve your self-image.
Once you have written down all the negatives, I want you to flip your paper over and write down what you truly are capable of. Keep in mind you have no limits to your potential so really what does that mean to you?
We have been to the moon as the human race. Let’s think about that for a minute. If we can make it to the moon, and we’re working on getting to Mars right now, then imagine what you can really accomplish.
All it takes is for you to realize that you need to make the decision that you’re going to do it no matter what. Whatever your goals and aspirations are you can achieve them, but it really is up to you to have the right mindset and to stay away from all the negatives and your past failures/setbacks.
3). Play The Most Negative Movie In Your Mind:
I also want you to play the most negative movie in your mind if you don’t achieve your goals. Let’s say that you totally failed on your first attempt on a new project and it’s just a disaster.
I want you to really get into this and see how bad it can really get I mean bring out all the negatives in this picture. I want this picture to be so dire and so bad that it makes you want to actually succeed no matter what.
You need to be able to get yourself into a corner mentally where you realize I have to succeed because I don’t want to live like this if I fail.
Remember when I’m saying failing, I mean temporary setback there’s no such thing as failure unless you quit. Once you’ve played this movie, this negative movie in your mind, then stop and take a moment and flip it to a positive movie if you succeeded.
Now, I personally believe you will succeed at whatever you work at, as long as you don’t ever give up, but the whole point of this exercise is to make you realize that you don’t ever wanna experience that negative movie, so you’re willing to push through all the difficulties to make your dream come true.
4). Play A Positive Movie Every Morning Before Work:
Once you’ve done the above exercise from this day forward I want you to start playing a positive movie in your mind of you having achieved your goal or aim in life before you go to work.
I want you to bring out all the emotions and all the good in that movie. You have to really start to feel like you’re successful and that you’ve made it and that all your dreams have come true.
When you do this often enough you will actually begin to emulate this from a subconscious level. You will also begin to attract things in harmony with that image into your life.
If you’re doing business ventures and deals you will actually attract people to you who want to make deals and support your vision in life.
As you are doing this for 30 to 90 days you will reprogram yourself to be an unstoppable force and you will stop all your failures and your fear of not being able to accomplish your ultimate dreams. But you also doing this will result in rejection being a thing of the past for you.
You will naturally feel more confident and more sure of yourself as you pursue your dreams and aspirations. The whole point of this is you are actually reprogramming yourself and your self-image for a healthier happier you.
5). Make A List Of Things To Be Grateful For:
Now in life, we’re all going to have those times where we really just feel like we’re down and nothing’s going right and it’s just not gonna get better. I personally experienced that today, and that’s OK because I am having a human experience.
That’s human nature and that’s going to happen to everybody I don’t care who you are. But what I’ve learned is that in these moments if you take a step back and start to count your blessings and all the good in your life you begin to feel better at the moment, but you also begin to attract things to you that mirror those things that you’re grateful for.
I will make a list of things I’m grateful for multiple times a day because I’m not always upbeat, if I said I was I’d be lying to you.
I’m up and down there’s no such thing as an even keel person. By the way, you making a list of things you’re grateful for whether that’s on paper or in your mind, during the day, will really help you to shift your energy and help you to really overcome anything that you’re experiencing right now including rejection and failures at the moment that appears to go nowhere.
What’s really cool with gratitude is that it actually heals people. What I mean by that is it heals you mentally, it helps you to get rid of all the negativity and all the mental junk that you’ve acquired throughout all your life.
I personally prefer typing out the things I’m grateful for because it allows me to really focus and give that positive energy as I’m typing. So use this throughout the day multiple times.
Now I believe in a higher power that I’m personally connected to. I choose to call that power Heavenly Father or God. When I’m grateful whatever is happening at that moment in my life seems to fade away. I feel at peace, I feel happier, and I feel closer to God or the Universe. It is at that moment I am able to step back and realize that my problems are really not that important.
Compared to the realms of eternity afterlife is a short stint on this earth that is really the size of a grain of sand. Because eternity has infinite grains of sand, so is it really worth giving into fear and rejection and looking at my past failures?
Or do I acknowledge them, write down things I’m grateful for and move on? I promise if you start to do this every day for the next 30 days you will see the biggest shift in your mental attitude and your fears will actually just go away.
the fear of failure and rejection is all mental. Most people spend their entire life living in the past mentally. What they really should be doing is living in the moment because all we have is now.
If you want to come over these challenges be grateful for what you have in life and realize who you are on the inside of your body. If you just do these two things alone your life will never be the same.
You moved into your body you’re going to move out of your body onto eternal life, your problems compared to eternity are minuscule.
Don’t let fear hold you back, you live once and it’s your choice what you focus on. Do you want to focus on all the problems? Or do you want to focus on all the possibilities in your life that you can accomplish because you understand who you really are?
