Why are we so afraid to fail?
We constantly hear … Mr. X is super successful in his career, Mrs. Y and Mr. Z are super successful in their marriage, and so countless people who are happy and successful in their lives. We ask ourselves, why are they so successful and I am not?
The answer is simple, we only see the cover of the magazine, but not the story behind it. What we see is that these “successful” characters carry personal baggage of disappointments, failures, crying and suffering, struggle, which has allowed them to reach the position that today show us with pride. We see for example that those people, who have thrived at some point in their life, committed faults, but merely an interest to achieve their purposes, reached the goal they wanted to achieve. His secret, who tried it, even with that fear that things will not turn out as expected, even though many times they failed; failures of those who learned how to not make the same mistake in the next attempt, in a nutshell, dared to face the challenges that put their lives on the road even with the fear that everything was ruined.
Being afraid is natural, but when fear becomes the compass that directs the decisions you make, the …. “I can not” … the … “I must not” …. and … “what if she says no?” … become undesirable companions of the way, that keep us from every possibility to feel happy and fulfilled, and we become mere spectators of the successes of others, while we sabotage our own. “The really successful person will always achieve mastery in managing their own emotions” Tom Butler Anyone can feel fear, but to the proper level, at the right time and for the right reasons, provided they are well founded. We need to internalize that life is not easy, things that frighten us to the final keep learning a great lesson, that without challenges, life becomes monotonous, gray and lifeless. We must sit down to analyze the positive and the negative attitudes that we have. How we can balance them, which is what we are really looking for: the self-gratification of the achievements or show the world what we have achieved.

We must sit down to analyze positive and negative attitudes that we have, how we can balance them, which is what we are really looking for. The self-gratification of the achievements or showing the world what we have achieved. Once we admit that is what drives us and admit that things are not so easy to get, but to learn not to be afraid to problems, suffering, assuming our share of responsibility, with the courage to try things, we find the balance that allows us to face what terrifies us. When we realize that life is like a game of strategy that we should be motivated to learn, to take responsibility for our actions, to learn to apply the rules to overcome all obstacles, we shall then take the time to live a life that you always wanted. So remember
” Forge your own destiny, create something valuable, make a superior form of humanity, be daring to face your fears.” Tom Butler
