Embrace the fear

There is a galaxy of people out there who wants to get noticed.

But standing out is risky. It’s easier to play safe, to hide, to avoid failures, and seek comfort.

That’s why so many people do not take action, they over-think, over-plan, get lost in irrelevant details.

But that’s normal, is how our brain works. It is there to protect us from any type of threats.

The problem is that the fear of failure can undermine our judgement, performance and ultimately our happiness.

Understanding that failure is as inevitable as death and taxes in the path of success is the key step to start getting value out of it, learn from it, and over time it will help to help people to master their skills and become better professionals.

Don’t be scared to f*ck it up. Be humble and embrace failure’s value as a teacher.
