This past weekend we talked about facing your fear of failure; that insidious dread that comes over you when you realize it’s do or die, when you’re about to take a course of action that puts you at risk – or at least, that’s what your heart tells you.
From deciding who to marry, to what job to take, where to live, or where to go to college, life decisions every single day are deformed by the fear that lurks within that somehow we may fail.
In this talk we illustrated three things that fear of failure does. It paralyzes, sterilizes, and ultimately demoralizes the person who allows it to have free reign in his or her life.
We also talked about the choices that we make in the face of this fear that makes us losers, as well as the four practical things we can do in the face of this fear to ultimately be winners.
No matter who you are, where you are, or what you’re going through, it doesn’t matter how much success you’ve had to date, or how many times you’ve failed, this fear of failing is ever-present. You’re going to have to conquer it each and every day with a strong, vibrant, growing, first-hand, full-throttle faith. That only comes from feeding your soul on truth. And this truth is found in sacred Scripture.
The goal is, each and every day when someone asks you in passing how you’re doing, whether you say it out loud or in your heart, you’re able to say, “Still in one peace.”
