Fear of failure can be so debilitating that some will stay in their safe zone and never venture out to try anything new. If this sounds like you, I would encourage you to step out of that comfort zone. Otherwise, how will you ever know what  you are really good at doing, if you never find out those things you are not so good at doing. A reporter once asked inventor Thomas Edison how it felt to fail 1000 times before making the light bulb. Edison replied, “I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”

There have been many successful people who have failed time and again, only to achieve great success. Colonel Sanders, the found of KFC, was rejected over a thousand times before finally getting a yes to his chicken recipe.

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” -Michael Jordan

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” -Wayne Gretzky
