For a very long time I was terrified of failure. The motivating force in my life was striving for perfection. I was always working towards being the best daughter, student, employee, partner, etc. But the problem with being focused on perfection is that it means you don’t take risks. When you are focused on success, you try to limit the opportunities for failure.
My fear of failure made it impossible for me to have a clear vision of what I truly wanted. Once I faced my fear, I was able to clearly envision what I wanted and start moving in the direction of my vision…. Don’t let fear keep you from having clarity with yourself about what you want.
