Overcoming The Fear Of Failure.

In modern society, we have been programmed through various ways such as the TV, societal programming, family programming and in particular school programming to fear failure. Fear of failure is a mental state of being where one avoids or puts off an activity or scenario that has the potential for an unsuccessful outcome… The fear of failure is riddled throughout our society today. People are afraid to take a risk, take a chance and be something great or better than where they currently are… However, due to our school programming we were taught that mistakes are bad and we will get in trouble if we mess up. We desperately wanted to be the perfect student in order to gain approval and appraisal from our teachers.. In a family setting the child wants to please their parents and be deemed a success in their eyes… That’s what we crave as children… The prospect of being a failure in our parents' eyes breaks the inner child.  This is precisely why those risks and/or chances remain untaken… This in turn has created a society full of people playing it safe, not taking risks, chances and missing golden opportunities due to their fear of failure. How about we flip the script from negative to positive? What if taking that chance or taking that risk works out? What if it doesn’t fail? Ponder that…. 

The fear of failure was a huge thing for me to overcome, all I wanted to be was a success through my parents eyes… Flipping the script and coming to the realisation that in order to be a success... I needed to feel worthy of being a success through my own eyes and not anyone else's… It was upon that realisation where things started to change for the better in my life and fearing failure was a distant memory. 

For me, I was on the path to being a teacher inside the mainstream school system. I have always had a passion for working with children and the youth stemming from my experiences inside school…  Given my programming, becoming a teacher was what I believed for a long time was how I could make a difference and impact childrens' lives… My family was proud. I was proud and my life was great. I was going to University, working in schools and building some real connections to potentially slot into a job once my studies were complete. During that time I was noticing how wrong some of things were, but I never said anything… I just believed that this was the only system, the only way to work with children so I just kept on keeping on… Until 2020 when the truth slapped me in the face hard… My life was about to change direction.. I was awakening to the world's truths and the truths that existed within me.. It was during this time where it was blatantly obvious that this mainstream school system was failing children and indoctrinating them to become compliant obedient order followers… My soul during this time was screaming at me, it was yearning for something more. I was being called to fulfill my higher purpose.. I decided to make the decision to completely turn my back on ever becoming a ‘teacher’ inside the school system. I had no clue what was around the corner but it was a decision that I stuck with. I walked the path and came into contact with my now mentor Jason Christoff and enrolled in his International Overcoming Self Sabotage and Psychological Reprogramming Institute… I knew what my parents were thinking at the time due to their programming. I could see it, I could feel it… The fear of failure was creeping into my thoughts… But, It was the fear of being a failure in their eyes.. However, I knew that this move was going to pay off in the long run… I copped the questions of what if it doesn’t work out? What if no one wants to be coached by you? Those were questions I was receiving but I was also doubting and questioning myself… I was taking a huge risk, going out my own and starting my own business from scratch…. The little child Nath just wanted to be a success in his parents eyes…. What I was embarking on was not what my parents at the time deemed successful. I flipped the script, I began asking what if it worked out? What if I change the lives of thousands of people? What if my message spreads? I stuck at it, through patience, resilience and discipline… Those same negative questions came when my first book was written… What if no one reads it? What if no one buys it? I flipped the script again and said what if it changes just one life? What if it changes many lives? What if I build an audience and a message that sells the book? It was from me pursuing my dreams, my ambitions and letting the negative comments wash over me that I changed my own perception but also my parents… This was extremely powerful… Fast forward 2 years,  I continue to stick at it and many opportunities have since come my way… There have been mistakes made but I allowed myself to make them and then see the lesson in it for next time.. Something we are not taught in school… I was flipping my script and changing from the negative to positive but it also flipped my parents' script when they started seeing what I was actually doing and the impact I am having. They were proud, I was proud.  Little Nath was validated, he was loved, heard, seen and acknowledged.. 

You can do this too, take that chance. Do that thing you have always wanted to do. Do not allow the negativity and the fear of failure to take over. Flip the script and ask yourself what if it works out? What if it succeeds beyond my wildest dreams? Imagine that feeling, see the moment and anything is possible.
