When you are a fearful person over time it limits you. If you don’t see how it limits you then take a second to think of things that you want to do but are scared. Another thing could be afraid of being honest and show your failures. Appearing to perfect is just a way for you to think you are above others.
Fear is something that will kill your dreams. The way that fear will limit you and kill your dreams is by you seeing what things could happen and never doing anything. You’d never attempt to do something outside of yourself in regards to your fear of failure. There are certain athletic examples that can be used in reference for failing over and over again.
A basketball player shoots a basketball over and over until they make it. So the misses count as the repeated failure that does not not last. A skateboarder falls down over and over and gets back up until they land the trick. The repeated failing allows you do develop the mentality of I do not care what it takes I’m going to do it.
This sense of determination and fearless mentality is developed over time so do not think this is something that few possess. You as well can develop these skills. Each day do something that scares you (that is legal and does not hurt anyone or yourself). If your scared to ride a bike down a hill do it, If your scared to stand on a skateboard do it and many other things to get the fear out of you.
