4. Redefine failure

What do you think of when you imagine failing? Not achieving a certain result or outcome?

6. Change your story

At the core of your fear are long-held, negative belief patterns. These thoughts keep you from changing your life. You’ve thought this way for so long that it’s become entrenched in your subconscious, and now you believe them. But, you can retrain your brain to think optimistic thoughts.

Tell yourself an encouraging story often enough, and soon you’ll believe it. That’s how you trained your mind to think negatively in the first place, so you know it works!

7. Have patience on your journey to excellence
