Is a fear of failure holding you back from growing your business?
Do you struggle to try something new in your business for fear of failure?
Are past mistakes causing you to sideline your ideas before you even get started?
How often do you compare yourself to business owners killing it on the highlight reels?
If any of this resonates with you, know that you’re not alone. For a long time, I got stuck on my past mistakes but through challenging my mindset and doing the internal work, I now see those experiences as invaluable.
I believe it’s time that we normalise failure. We need to reframe mistakes as lessons and have the confidence to experiment without the expectation of outcomes.
What business decision would you make if you weren’t afraid of it crashing and burning?
What if you overcame your fear of failure?
Topics We Covered:
[2:30]: The fear of failure keeps you in old stories and locked boxes of safety. It stifles creativity, implementation and the end result is we all do the same thing.
[3:15]: It’s not about the outcome. It’s about taking action and being open to whatever lessons land in your path.
[4:00]: It’s time that we normalise failure. There’s a difference between failing and being a failure. You aren’t expected to be great at everything straight away - we learn as we go.
[5:30]: I made a lot of mistakes with my first business but it’s brought me a depth of experience.
[6:45]: I could have gotten stuck in my old stories and not launch the podcast. The only thing I can control is my actions.
[8:30]: Listener shoutout to The Social Butterfly who left a great review on my podcast.
[11:00]: Where to find Silika
