Fear of Trying? Risk Failure
To be successful, be willing to fail. If you never fail, you’re playing it too safe -- and that’s boring. You may feel that you’ve done enough failing already. Remind yourself that the strategies you’ve learned over the years increase your odds of being successful this time. For example, now that you’ve pushed yourself to input meetings, commitments, and deadlines into your smart phone, or to be diligent about keeping a paper planner, you are less likely to disappoint your boss by being late on an assignment. Perhaps you are ready now to go for that promotion.
