Overcoming the fear of failiure

By 7 October, 2016Links

In a post on Quora, Evan Asano, CEO of Mediakix.com offered a response to the question: “How can I overcome the fear of failiure?” 

His response included an anecdote from his time as a high school hockey player, and a particularly meaningful life lesson extracted from a coaching session. That day, the coach taught his students about pushing the limits of their comfort zone, about taking risks in pursuit of ‘failure’, for the sake of developing a ‘new normal’ and reframing their fear.

He summarises the lesson with the following steps towards overcoming fear:

  • Reframe failure
  • Understand your fear
  • Counter fear with confidence
  • Take action
  • Ignore the fear
  • Challenge the fear
  • Debunk fearlessness
