Creative geniuses are not embarrassed by "failure"

Geniuses like Edison, the Wright brothers, and modern day creatives are not defensive or embarrased about using trial and error. If you ask any seasoned innovator, they will probably have a collection of "war stories" about failures before their success.

Fear of Failure

Fear of Failure

Fear holds us back. We don't ask for a raise in fear of losing our job. We don't have a tough conversation due to fear of conflict.Β The culprit is our fear of failure.

Once we get comfortable with failing, and use it as a learning experience, we can deal with life and grow exponentially.

Failure and growth

Failure is an important part of growth, a valuable learning experience.

But failure is not the goal, it is not something to strive for. It is merely a byproduct of trying new things, taking risks and learning.

Overcoming The Fear Of Failure

People can lose time, money, respect, resources among other things when faced with failure, and that leads to fear-based procrastination. We need to keep in mind that mistakes happen, and only with action and errors does one learn something and moves towards growth.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
