Is the fear of being wrong holding you back?

We live in a world where perfection is championed and anything less is frowned upon. Whether this is a business idea, our bodies, or just the way we post on social media, we are constantly being judged. Most often than not though the harshest judge of all is ourselves, so why do we do this to ourselves?

We have allowed ourselves to be victims in a world that is paralyzed with getting things wrong, making a mistake or waiting to do anything because we are unable to make it prefect. When did this happen in our world? We reached this point in our history from pushing the boundaries, exploring unchartered seas and experimenting over and over again until we got it right.

Throw off that fear of getting it wrong or not being perfect and a whole new world opens up to you. Understand that the greatest people or those who we see as successful now where not always that way. Steve Jobs, Richard Branson and any other icon of our world have always said they didn’t always get it right.

But that is why they did eventually become successful, because they broke away from the pack that were all worrying about making a mistake, being perfect or just petrified that someone would say you got it wrong. Most of the world is living in that state of fear, worried what others, so called friends, might say, think or do if we tried and failed. And let’s be honest most of the world are still unhappy. So you have to ask yourself one question, ‘Do you want a life like most of the world who are unhappy or do you want a life where you are not paralysed by fear?’
