Fear of failure, many times, stagnate your results.
There are quite a few people sitting at home right now, who are not working out because they have a fear of failing.
There are quite a few people at the gym, who rest on their bands, or don’t put extra weight on the bar for the same reason, fear of failure!
I’m here to tell you it is ok to fail. If you push yourself hard, you may even surprise yourself and succeed.
Failing is something that should be celebrated!
In fact, I try to fail everyday. When I do a workout, I try to push myself as hard as I can. I try to put as much weight on the bar as I think I can handle. Many times I fail. Many times, I can’t lift the weight. Many times, I get beat on workouts. It’s ok! I also succeed sometimes.
Push yourself as hard as you can, make yourself better, and there are bound to be failures in there. Build upon the failures and you will be stronger, and better for it!
What are you afraid of if you fail? What have you failed at?
