Let’s talk about, “Fear of failures”.
This reminds me of a quote by Steve Jobs, “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards…”, the quote is not over yet..
Fear of failures come from a very point we start failing successively, we stop and then connect the dots and bammm! The fear engrosses you. But, I believe no-matter how many failures, one should keep moving forward and let those dots vanish.
There was this lady in a train, with a child. Her train got 4 hours delayed and she started writing about wizards. She wrote a book and was rejected by 12 publishers to finally publish “Harry Potter”, the author-J.K.Rowling.
There was this man, who was rejected by facebook, rejected by twitter. He took it positively and started working on an app. Years later he sold his app to facebook for 19 billion dollars. His name is Bryan Acton, co-founder of Whatsapp.
And I can tell you a thousand stories…
Had they taken failures as failures, would we be able to spend sleepless nights with Harry Potter books? Would we be able to connect with our friends and family this easy 24×7?
You know, these failures are failures till you don’t learn from it. They become lessons after learning from it.
And the remaining quote, “…So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.”
Trust yourself, trust your work. Always believe something wonderful is about to happen. Miracles do exist!
Your time will come and you will rise like a sun in dawn. Keep working!
