Hey guys! My name’s Itxy, and today we’re going to talk about the truth about failure. By the end of this video, you will know how to reframe failure, and how to stop fearing it.
One of the biggest fears that people have is the fear of failure. The fear of failure is what stops people from going after their “unreal goals.” The fear of failure is the reason that you’re watching this right now.
Everyone’s afraid to fail, and because of this, people aren’t taking risks, they’re not happy, and they’re not willing to do what’s necessary to reach their goals.
The problem with the way people view failure is that they view it as an end. They think that on the day that they fail, that it’s their last day to live, and that somehow there’s no way to make up for it. Like, it’s literally the end.
But, to me, and what I hope to convince you of by the end of this video, failure is not an end.
Failure isn’t something to fear because failure is a beginning. Failure is a chance to try again, and it’s an opportunity to learn and grow.
I don’t even think Failure is real. I genuinely believe that.
To me, “failure” is just a mistake that you make. And the way I view mistakes, and the way I think everybody else views mistakes, is when we make a mistake, we just say to ourselves—“Damn it, I messed up, but let me try again, and see what I can do differently.”
Like, it’s no big deal when you make a mistake.
That’s how I used to view failure, too. I used to think that it was someone lying on the floor crying and unwilling to get up and try again. But then I changed mentality to what I knew was the truth, and that is that failure is just a mistake.
You might be thinking, but making a mistake is failure, but according to it’s definition a mistake is an action or a judgment that was misguided or wrong. I don’t hear the word failure in there.
A mistake is not the same as failure.
If you were to start a business, and all of this bad shit happened, and you were out of business, I truly believe that you didn’t fail.
Actually, I feel believe that you’re one step closer to success and to your goal when you “fail.”
And that’s how you need to reframe failure, too. You have to view it, not as the end of the world, but as a simple mistake that you can come back from.
As long as you’re still going and fighting and breathing, then you have not failed.
Failure is just a mistake. It’s just another obstacle that you have to overcome.
So, I’m going end this video here because I don’t think there’s anything else that I have to explain.
Failure is not the end. Failure AKA as making a mistake is a beginning.
So, you need to stop fearing “failure” because you are going to make lots of mistakes—it’s unavoidable. You just have to remember that those mistakes aren’t setbacks.
They’re opportunities to grow, and to learn, and to become better.
If you’re not making mistakes every now and then, then you’re not taking the risks that you should be taking.
Take those risks. Achieve your goals. Stop letting “failure” stop you from going after what you love
