Embracing the fear of failure


The fear of failure is what stops most people from pursuing their dreams and achieve success in life.
But I am one of those few who learned to embrace failure. That’s because I learn and grow because of failure. This is a positive attitude that my experiences as a writer, journalist and sports enthusiast have taught me.
As a writer and journalist, rejection was part of the initiation into the craft. No writer has reached far in the profession without his/her share of rejection, of articles and stories landing in the trash can, or copy that comes back with so many editing marks the original is hardly recognizable.
The same is true with sports. I played chess, tennis, basketball competitively in high school and college. No athlete comes close to winning a medal in competitions on a smooth and easy path. Victory is the sweet product of defeat in the early stages of his/her development.
